Hiya jools

Canadiensis is a very vicious foliaged plant.....not really good for imdoors in that respect.   Too vicious outside too I think

It is hardy down here but not in most places.  

Can you return it?   If you have your receipt there should be no problem at all. 

Canadiensis is not a favourite of mine....like Phillippa I prefer Humilis or almost anything else come to that.  

You can fleece it but the foliage will rip it to shreds.......and you if you are not careful.

Agree with Dave.  Dig your recipient hole first.  Hopefully you can then lift and replant quickly.  

Get if off your chest.

Ah, exams KEF.  I actually enjoyed them.  O and A levels. Had loads of pressure of course prior to them, mental blocks at first sight of the papers but then relaxed and got on with them.  Coursework I think is not such a good indicator of ability.  

Re WUMS.  I think there is just the one right now but, as I understand it, every forum, social group, anywhere where people gather in some way, has a WUM.  Part of life.

I think Nut is spot on.

....if a post is clearly offensive....and its from someone who has posted like this before....it is better to use the ignore button instead of replying to it. ,

Learned something about the origin of the name potash Alan.  I will use this in my conversations to impress

Liked Tony Benn.   Too far left though for me but a sincere man I think.  Had his principles and spoke up loud and proud.  Nobody quite like him today in politics.

Just  made a beef casserole to cook slowly later.  Made a banoffee pie too......ok, I bought it.  For others to enjoy cos its bit too delicious......er, rich....for me 

Have sent you pm Matty

Mist is lifting somewhat but I don't think a sunny afternoon is beckoning.

Hello fairy 54

Can you give some details....size, what you would like in your garden, etc.

How big is your grass?  Can you dig it over and rake it level and sow fresh grass seed?  it's a good time now to do that

Well said Mike

(I think maybe we have found someone to keep us all in check and well behaved...ha ha ) 

I think Monty is very good .....yes maybe self taught but knows his stuff. Sometimes though I think he is wrong.....planting that large and expensive bamboo in a relatively small pot, for example, or planting several shrubs in containers as though they were summer bedding............and his style is very predictable.  Too much walking with the barrow, playing with Nigel, and very little detail.  The GW team looks tired and is uninspiring.....one presenter is better.

Hello fFORKERS

Foggy and misty again this morning.  It seems most everyone had a bright sunny day yesterday but in this part of Cornwall we had fog all day.  I blame David Cameron 

Lots of "babies" there Stacey.  

Sorry you are in the doghouse again Punkdoc.  What you like?  

Not done much in the garden yet so many here are so busy.  Better get back my enthusiasm ! 

Have good day folks
