Impressive DD.    think you're on right track 

Not gardening but a computer question

Posted: 13/11/2014 at 19:10

But windows computers really are soooooooooooo much cheaper.  Two good computers, 3 medium quality ones for the cost of an apple mac.  And haggling brings even better value.  No haggling with Apple products.  I have purchased quality Sony laptops for past 4 years.  They look as good as macs, exude quality and have far greater specs.  Had I purchased a Mac 3 years ago it's specs would now be surpassed by even the cheapest windows brands 

price is an essential factor in any purchase and not to be belittled.  Always walk out after a purchase with excellent savings and free, haggled for, goodies.  Good feeling .  

So fed up with all this rain!!!!

Currently our local weatherman is talking about the rain today.  What rain?  from late morning until this evening it's been lovely here.  Others in Cornwall sharing this?   Rain now though.

I read that nectarines and raspberries are bad for you.  So out of the goodness of my heart I will accept that cake Dove .......

I tend to agree with you dianet.  Produces weeds.  Prefer compost.

hot composting

Impressive David .  I do use mower at a friend's place to shred her stuff.  Should do it on mine too.

Just in after a good walk down to the beach.  Lovely here. Warm, dry and light winds.  We all keep saying "what storm"?  

took the opportunity too to move some plants.....ground surprisingly in good heart.

Talkback: How to lift and divide day lilies

Jack, as long as the day lilies pieces are of reasonable size they should flower well next year.  

i would delay on the water lilies though.   Split these in spring

Autumn Lawn Feed

It simply adjusts the balance of nutrients ...basically less nitrogen.  What other plant is specially fed during the winter ?  A waste of money best spent on some extra plants?
