Well done hosta's daughter 

fuss, fuss, fuss Jo until someone does something about your heating.  threaten to withold rent, etc.  This is no time of year to be without heating. 

Someone is letting their dog poo at entrance to my drive.......I will catch him/ her.  not always here so I will need some luck.  I suspect it happens early evening. Once caught someone, knocked on his door and pointed to his returned dog poo on his step...."your property I think".  Prob do same this time.  (Rant over) 

rain passed.  Blue sky emerging.  Sun soon 

Manuring before growing carrots

Yes Frankie. If you want carrots in spring don't apply manure now.    You need another crop before sowing carrots.  Ideally manured now for carrots in 2017.

a light, well mixed application of fish blood n bone will be all you need Frankie. ,

Let's hasten the winter! What are you looking forward to flowering in spring?

Posted: 17/12/2015 at 12:21

Frankie, always a plus side.  daffs flowering now will die back earlier so less dying foliage in spring.  I have more daffs flowering now so will just enjoy them.  Spring has so much to offer anyway 

What's in your bag?

Tetley yes I think you are correct....i would never mix mushroom compost into a seed mix.

haven't had mushroom compost for 5 years or so....hard to get hold of now....but I spread it over garden in autumn and cultivate it into topsoil in spring allowing winter rains to wash it through.

glass fruitcake?  Scary

Nothing is better than peat Tetley.  How come it's  fine to burn it but disgraceful to use it for gardening purposes?

I agree...the poor state of the compost we buy is a disgrace.  Only yesterday I found a wallet with £100 in it in one bag......so annoying

Difficult and sad journey Lily Pilly.  And for you to know what to say.  And for you too Jo.  

I guess we have all gone through similar times.  

talking and listening is probably the most important thing we can do

Hello forkers

(Now, isn't even talking about wet weather better than nappy talk ? )

Can you still get peat Tetley? 

Sieved soil...my own is sandy loam...sieved mushroom compost and perlite makes a good mixture for containers for me.
