I agree with you fidget.  Brambles are the most dangerous plants....long bramches of vicious thorns have torn my face and hands and my clothing.  

The big outdoors is a potemtially dangerous place...why did fhe creator make if so? (Hmmmm! A new (contentious) thread I think could be made here )

Putting Evergreen complete on a month old lawn

Ah!  Possibly so.  Probably actually. 

I would water really well and keep it so for week or so.  fingers crossed Steven 

Oh come on......

Well....that blew away a few cobwebs

Yes, Wonky.  That was me there.  Small world.  I wasnt pinching cuttings though...they were broken already 

a hot afternoon and evening.  The ready to flower stuff has been pushed even further .....amazing the effects of rain, albeit not as much as I wanted.  But the delphiniums are now past their majestic best....every  season has something to offer and lose!

note on the door.....the owner of the garden I visited last week had been.....she's after my Amistad and a plant or two too

Steven not a lot you can do now.  No help I know, but read all labelling thiroughly

the only thing you can do is water it thiroughly and be prepared to re seed...hopefully some of the lawn will recover.

the tender young grass is bound to be affected.  Just think now about and be prepared for the next positive steps to take prob in about 4 weeks or so

Oh come on......

Pete......recognition at last. 

Problem is though many hand the percentage I dont know.......say there is no climate change taking place

remember those crop circles?  Some locals ...I understand the mischief involved........created crop circles and a whole bunch of "experts" rushed to the site and declared supernatural activity.  When the locals announced their work the "experts" moaned about wasting their time and disappeared (into their bedroom labs no doubt) 

did you see the "experts" on question time last night?  

(Hee hee hee...I am a naughty boy Fairy.  A very naughty boy

Hey! I was in the Range too.  Didnt see you there Wonky?  

Oh come on......

How do you KNOW differently WillDB?

A clue from where the "rant came from" featured in my post.  

An advantage of the libdems losing power is that a fanatically inclined energy minister is no longer driven to push up energy prices.  

however, I repeat.....I KNOW some "expert" will pop up on our screens if we have a heatwave to say it is "climate change".    Mankind is destroying the environment But this is not causing climate change

(Always nice to stir tho WillDB. )
