sorry Ed.   Cornwall is near freezing, a bit wet and blowing a gale.  However, enjoy Edd

Thanks for that info Bewitched. so some optimism then.

deliberately grown more bee friendly plants this year...agastaches for example have been swamped by bees.

Out of curiosity Bee witched, are bee colonies still declining?  This past summer and early autumn I have seen a lot of bees, maybe more than in previous years

truly nothing Dyers End. someone said swearing or cursing.....that really didnt merit such drastic nanny state action.  

I'm just concerned this might set a precedent where one person .....not involved....can have 2 threads removed.  It was unnecessary and heavy handed 

anyway, one hopes this wont happen again.  We need to be able to debate freely 

maybe now we can move on folks .  

Thyme and sedum - plant them out now?

Thyme and sedum - plant them out now?

I would pot up individually Steve.   Roots are still growing even now. I would fleece them and leave in sheltered spot.  Thymes and sedums are pretty tough but potted up will be so much better in spring.

reminds me to start....again....with some alpine growing.  Where is Woodgreen Wonderboy when you need him?  He has quite a lot I believe.

Where is Autumn?

Shock to the system late this afternoon.  Real feeling of COLD.  Strong wind across the sea.  Winter is beginning to bite. 

Put more mulch down bark chips......where a dozen or so hellebores will soon emerge, a couple of H Niger are flowering and daffs already several cms tall.  Shortest  day in 4 weeks and then the days lengthen towards summer.  How's that for optimism?

How I wish the deleted thread was re instated because I know full well the extent of "bickering".   you all then would see for yourself.  NOBODY INVOLVED TOOK OFFENCE.  NOBODY ASKED, CONSULTED OR TOLD ME MY THREAD WOULD BE DELETED.

We cant have one person making judgements like that ....sorry Dove but you were out of order there.

so, to recap.  We can re start that thread....?  We would all say the same things of course because it's how we genuinely feel.  But this time the thread would not be deleted???

Thanks Daniel but you were wrong.  There was no reason to delete a thread that many valued.
