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
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
Share your envy Hosta. Superbly addictive aren't they?
wet morning. Back in from a shorter walk with Spike. But mid morning will bring something betteer.
(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.
Morning? Morning Pat? Haven't got to bed yet
I remember Christmas in Aussie as a kid. On the beach. Lovely.
have fun out there Pat
Pansyface, you know that winter hasn't started yet? We are still in autumn until next week. I'm sure we will have cold, even very cold, weather.......everything averages out
