David Bowie

Posted: 12/01/2016 at 18:42

Just a man?  David Bowie affected thousands all over the world.  There is an awful lot of media coverage but he has just died and warrants the accolades. in a few days it will all be as's expenses,,IS, flooding, fat cats' salaries and murders and assaults.  david Bowie will have another high profile day at his funeral.  we should not begrudge him this respect

Which subjects............

It will make no difference how subject matter is sorted. certainly will not affect behaviour here. 

I read only "latest posts".  no designated separation of subjects where everything newly posted can be read at a glance.  I assume most everyone here does exactly the same. Whether fruit, veg, plants or trees all is together.  "Latest posts" cqptures the lot.  Where is the problem? 

Grass in Rose bed

Posted: 12/01/2016 at 17:55


a lot of roses but obviously going to be your pride and joy so worth spending some time to get rid of the grass.

i would use spring......very carefully and shield every rise from spray drift. It is amazingly frustrating how a speck of weedkiller will damage your precious plant yet not kill all the weeds.  Hand weed when very near the stem though.  

is it possible to lay down landscape fabric?   But fiddly though but that grass is likely to grow again and again for a while

Love to see Barnsdale one day Snow.  Think most of us agree Geoff was a one off.  20 years since his death?  Such a loss

Pot them Aster. 

A friend of mine has a catalogue of "rare" plants.....she has more money than sense and one of the items she bought was a "special rare" fig.  

The only thing special about it was it was unnamed.  it was puny yet she paid too much.  Other plants in the tiny catalogue were described by common names or vividly descriptive names but were really pretty ordinary.

my friend is simply gullible.  If a guy called selling "apecial" toilet rolls at a £1 a roll she would buy.  .....hmmmm! could make some money there 

Anyway, back to figs, I have suggested this fig be grown in a pot mainly because I think it is a tender variety.

Which subjects............
