David, I've learned to say no and do it right away now.  

Over the Xmas I got involved  sorting my cousin's issues.  He hinted about staying with me.  I dealt with it before he asked me.  

I would simply say having a dog in the house makes you feel unwell, the house feels dirty and you are not really a dog lover.  Dealt with now and  the issue is sorted.  Otherwise it will be  a continuing problem

Tomato problems!!

Posted: 08/08/2014 at 07:58

Meticulously kept a regime for my tomatoes.....as I did last year.

Foliage dry........no watering from the top.  Misting now and then mid day to assist pollination. Lower leaves removed below any fruit trusses.  All imperfect/old leaves removed ASAP. Seaweed spray.  Diluted milk spray 2 or 3 times in early summer. Epsom salts 2 or 3 times.  

Picked up on sound advice on the forum.....Italophile .....too

Huge crop of tomatoes.  Looking clean and healthy.  

Not complacent........2 dry summers have obviously played a major role. So far I'm feeling rather cocky

Morning everyone 

Why are my Conifers dying from the bottom up

No, not aphids.  Incorrect cultivation as already said. Its what happens to Leylandii and the like  if not grown with a wider base.  Seen it time and time again.  The exception, so far, is a hedge of leylandii I helped plant that has been  "tapered" from day one 

cancer has meant I can't manage my garden
