Morning folks 

dry pleasant morning but calm before the storm I think.  Very windy and very, very wet tonight and tomorrow....into next week too . Will check gh window is firmly closed as well as making sure everything is battened down.  Have a feeling this will be the worst weather so far.

Interesting diet Edd.  

Nostalgia way back to primary school Edd?  When I returned from Aussie ....9 or so....my two brothers and I had blond hair, an aussie tan and an aussie twang.  Girls liked it too as I recall........all the way to college with the accent.  You beat me by an inch 

.............carrot juice Edd?  I am teased....."orange face"....about my consumption of carrots during the summer.  folks are just jealous 

Hedge advice for sandy soil in windy spot

Posted: 05/02/2016 at 08:14

The pine needles are the real problem Kaspar.

I live near the coast on sandy...albeit good...soil too.  I think we share a similar climate and conditions 

Interesting though that you say fuschias, bay, etc. grow there despite the pine needles. That's good 

Griselinia is worth comsidering.  Sea Buckthorne suckers like mad so would not endorse it.  lonicera Baggesons Gold too is an excellent shrub with unique colour. 

Parsley

Well.....easy peasy for me.    half a dozen plants supply me all summer 

parsley needs heat to germinate quickly at this time of year....hence boiling water at sowing time. Try it folks.  Simples

THESE NEW PART TWO THREADS NORA

Nothing like Trump Zoomer or his hairstyle.   

My point is simple.....if someone took the trouble to start a thread that thread should continue with the author's name.  for example, the "worries" thread was started by KEF.     it is now credited to NORA.  to suggest it is a software issue is Incorrect.  

if you are happy with this folks then fine.
