Alexa looks very comfy there! We call that position  'the loaf'! 

i know how you feel SFord. I lost my beloved Pete in June, and still think about him every day. He's buried in his own special corner of the garden and I'm going to plant wild flowers there as he loved the garden so much. Please please please get another kitty from a rescue centre.  I bet any cat would be sooo lucky to live with you!

There are so many that need homes. We got Sid from the Cats Protection League; they do such an amazing job. He has brought so much fun and happiness and we've only had him for a short time!  He's 8 yrs old and has some sight problems. No one seemed to want him so we jumped at the chance to adopt him....he is simply adorable!

let us know if Santa brings you a furrrrry friend!

Introducing this lovely little chap...our new addition to the family. From the local rescue centre. He has already brought us immeasurable happiness in the short time we've had him. Feeling so lucky that he's ours!  In the words of Pharrell Williams 'happy, happy, happy, happy'!!


Preposterous question....

planting fruit trees

Posted: 16/12/2014 at 11:15

Hi Vic. I planted a cherry tree last weekend but before doing so I rang into my local bbc gardeners question time with a similar question - my tree has gone into the ground rather than a pot. They advised to put some manure in and some food, but not too much. This was to both help with the moisture of the soil, help prevent freezing and also growth as although trees look dormant right now, they actually have buds which need food even in winter. This will give them a head start in spring.

good luck with it!
