Suggestions for ants in flower bed

Posted: 16/06/2015 at 11:37

Yes ant powder or spray.  Only near ornamentals though..not near edibles.

Salvias and penstemons both are easy from cuttings taken now and will result in full size plants next year.

last night, at about 2 30, I was awoken by my niece. from pleasant dreams in the land of nod I was transported to a world of fear and panic and confusion

.  to her credit she was calm  considering the situation she found herself in

 in a state of semi sleep and foolhardy determination I went into her room   She stayed in the relative safety behind her door as I ventured forth. 

it was dark, quiet...eerily quiet....... ..but still I advanced 

.......and removed the "giant" bee from her curtain.

it's ok folks.  I'm ok now.  bit shaken if truth were told.  And my niece seems none the worse this morning for her ordeal as she drove off to work.  

But, what if I wasn't there?  I shudder to think

carrots and beets dying?

Posted: 15/06/2015 at 23:36

Fun though learning isn't it Mary?    thin carrots and beetroot when they are tiny.  I do mine on my knees to leave carrots about 1" apart and beetroot 2" apart.  I get good size carrots and beetroot.

Tact never was  my strong point Tetley  

trouble is if the neighbour wants to keep his kerria anything Ice does in future will be obvious.  For me, it's a case of doimg something now whilst you can.  Besides, I dont think sprayimg the runners will necessarily kill the main shrub.   I had the frustrating task of removing a kerria because of its tendency to grow again from odd runners.
