Raining here but quite dry overnight. Storm in a couple of hours though....actually beginnings of it now.
Hiya lily, spike seems ok. He's had plenty of extra treats and his walks.....don't let him run amongst the marram grass though just yet.
I don't think Dove is doing these power walks etc.....word is she is just driving around in her convertible.
Fidget, thinking of ??ou. You have lots of supporters here wishing you well and to be here whenever and however you post
Higgy, think you made a mistake with your loo there. It's not going to be comfortable to use
Normal depth is fine but you will see the corms growing on the surface as well as deep. For me they will grow in dry spots or in damp spots
Tiarella may grow there. It tolerates poor dryish soil in the shade. don't enrich the soil though if you plant this.
Ferns like Dryopteris will grow there.
Helxine is easily controlled with glyphosate. Spray in early spring and then again on any new growth throughout the growing season.
I knew that Dove. I was only testing to see if others knew too
Lily, that's par for the course at the moment, I'm afraid
I do sympathise for those whose gardens are flooded,,ESP those on clay soils.
Perlite for mixing into seed composts or for composts requiring good drainage. Vermiculite for top dressing pots. However, I use plenty of perlite but prefer grit, gravel, etc to top dress pots so vermiculite is rarely on my shopping list.
Well done David. I challenge every bill, charge, fee or estimate. I halve my AA bill, get my insurers to price beat....not price match....car insurance, house insurance etc. I ask what discount I'm getting on every purchase I make. (never IF I will get a discount but how much) and even get a trade in when I buy new tv set for example. It's amazing how much you can save If a product breaks down and it's caused me inconvenience to return to the store for a replacement I ask to speak to the mamager and often receive a goodwill compensation.
What is a Harden mrsG?
Theres been so much rain that even my free draining sandy loam was holding pools of water for a while. Nothing much anyone can do when mother nature has a tantrum like this but things will dry out.
