Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Worrying news fidget.  I'm Wishing you all the best.  

Cold callers?  At the door I just say simply "no thanks".  On the 'phone, depending on my mood and what time I have, I have some fun.  ranging from being simple, to being interested, to simging songs, to being deaf.  I also find after sales guys annoying...."am I satisfied with Talk Talk's recent advice, or with my car service, etc.

Don't understand this folks.......pull tubers with stems apart.  Simples.  No need to wait for eyes or timing. ,totally fine to do it now.  As long as you keep tubers frost free this is a sure fire method.

To cut everything down, or leave.

I like to get everything cut down.....grasses apart to save time in spring.  Then it is hectic.  

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

I'm sure you will find a place for it Salino.  I'm a little like that with plants......I know I want them but dont know exactly where to put them at the time.

KEF, just between you and me, talking about your last maltesers I have a confession to make.  I ate a whole bag of packets of them.  I carefully prised out a bag, then another then another then......well they were so morish.  I gave them to my niece so I will have to replace them Tom morning.  Don't really like chocs 

mrsGarden, I'm sure your Amelanchier will look superb......lovely tree. 

Woody, I'm "into" conifers....which varieties did you plant?  Eleagnus, I remember, was something Christopher Lloyd tired of so we (I discarded mine too) are in good company.

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

Not too much....unless I make new border, and I might 

this afternoon, as the weather is so good ( warm, sunny and dry) I trimmed large golden king holly (I think it makes a superb statement in the garden), large  euonymus  bushes, juniperus sulphur spray and one or two others to make the structure look as good as poss over winter.  Garden tends to lose some structure during summer when so much else competes.  Cut front and back grass and mulched hellebores.  Have my eye on part of front border where I will make a couple of changes but basically mostly set now for winter.
