Will divide and pot up a few hostas, geraniums and heucheras later 

Newsletter problem

Wot's it all about.....?

oh no!  Another untruthful article to dare suggest the antarctic is not melting.  And silleeeee me for believing it . However, it is wetter today.  Darker too.  Yep!  Climate change is happening cos only yesterday it was dry 

many academics or experts I have met or heard  have presented as unworldly and naive.  

But our local Councillors are more impressive.......!!!  They have just cut all funding for libraries and leisure centres to save money.  however, they will be  spending £3 million upgrading city centre theatre and £17,000 to teach councillors  the Cornish language.

Back for bite to eat. ,wet morning but will dry up soon.  

Hands and  knees for floors?  I love my steam mop.  Like working in the jungle.  Good for smoothing wrinkles on my bottom too.    

Liking those cheese scones Fritillary

Planting a conifer - help on selection

a1154, I think you should be looking at taxus or junipers. 

Taxus is a tough group responding to hard pruning so easily kept in check.  Not usually pyramid shaped though. ,junipers are also tough and many are the shape you want. 

Not a conifer but the hollies are naturally pyramid shaped, evergreen and tough.  Golden King, for instance, is a beauty and is without prickly foliage 

Mahonia Caress is flowering

foliage just looks tender, doesn't it? Cold east winds too much perhaps.   I feel confident it will be fine here.  Flowers didn't last long but, for me, it's about the foliage.
