Worst Winter ....... .?

Posted: 14/02/2014 at 19:00

Well for sheer damage, financial losses, distress,frustration and worry this is the worst winter.

Still not convinced its climate change.......sorry folks for me there is no proof of that.......but concede there are lots of extreme weather around the globe.

Me too....love that sketch.  And the idea of trying it when returning dead plants

These gusts are worse than anything seen so far.   

Some Fishermen down here are in dire straits.  No income coming in over the past 2 or 3 months.  Gradually the toll of this winter is mounting........how are the farmers' fields going to be when normality returns ?  Tales of suffering from so many people.  Very sad.

Just potted up some bare root lupins for a friend.  Keep well watered.....not too wet of course....and they should grow fast. I will repot again in couple of weeks or so amd again into a 2 litre pot  before plantIng out. 

Very wet but now extremely windy as well.  Not nice

Number 2 for me every time conditional on being vigorously growing cuttings.  If weak growing I move again into number 1 but this is rare for me preferring to delay potting on instead

Wind damage, greenhouse

Posted: 13/02/2014 at 20:45

Lost a piece of glass from the roof of my hexagonal greenhouse after Christmas. Fixed luckily immediately and on a wind free day. Mine has concrete and metal supports deep in the ground so very stable but it's worth a regular check for loose or broken glass.

Hiya Artjak,

Funny that cos I was thinking same thing.  Not sure I have lost much if anything except possibly a dahlia may have rotted in such pronged wet weather but I know many will lose a lot.  

If we can help in some way here ....cuttings, small divisions, etc....I would support that
