Forum out of order was it?  Prob because I was not posting ...a little sulk methinks 

absolutely cracking day here today.  Warm sunshine all through......bit of a chill in wind but still very pleasant.  And a Cuppa in the garden is luverly.

where I take my dog sometimes I noticed a bouquet of flowers and assumed someone had lost their dog.  Turns out it was the owner.  aged 41 and very fit.  Sudden heart attack.  bit of a shock that!

Not the best grass to grow in a pot, in my opinion.  However, depending on size of your plant at least double the size of  the rootball I'd suggest for this year.  And to use a john Innes number 3 compost.


Cat Poo on my raised veg beds

Damp soil surface works for me.  In veg patch I try to keep surface damp by spraying with hose.  

I would not eat veg if cats used the area as a toilet

a dog being around helps too I think

Brilliant sunshine throughout.  Watched it over Godrevy beach.  Some mentioned a drop in temp but for me it was gloriously warm and bright throughout.  No darkness as I expected Though

Think it's overwatered sirrith.

its a problematic time of year re watering.  Plants are moving but do not want too much water as soil, etc., is still not that warm.  Roots will,just sulk in wet cold conditions.

stop tinkering too.  Do not over pot.
