I've often wondered if those nematodes work. Prefer the idea of a beer trap though!

Pricey blooms on St Valentine's day

Happy St Valentine's Day folks.

Walking through Victoris Station to see the flower stall selling red tulips for £9.50 for 3! Blooms that is, not bunches!

Some lovely happy faces on the journey home of ladies and gents carrying bouquets. 

Love is in the air! 

Can you compost ferns?

Posted: 12/02/2015 at 20:41

It's either ferns or firs, but one of them is good for acid loving plants. If you cut it up small and sprinkle it around the base it might do them some good. I'm sure someoneon here will know.

I've stuck some in the ground before and they did come albeit small. Perhaps it's a tad early for ones outdoors just yet.

Woops!

I've discovered it's not just plants. A slice of chocolate tart just fell into my chops!

Hi Elderberry

Try Rhino - they are probs one of the best for a combination of sturdiness and value for money.

You'd better be careful about how much electricity you use when powering up your computer then Frank!  Don't tell me  - you have your own wind turbine? You've invested in kinetic plates? Maybe some photovoltaic panels? You don't eat meat because go the methane issues? You only wear trousers made from grass? You've never eaten anything purchased from a supermarket? You travel by horse and cart?

Thing is Ed, I don't want to be 'told' 

I'll just have lots of fun having a go at keeping them healthy and strong, and if they don't make it, guess what??......I'll just have another go!  This parade doesn't get rained on that easily 

Each to their own though, and I'm delighted with mine!
