Lovely day now

wot r people like?  A new Asda store opened here this morning.  A mile long queue, people fighting for parking spaces and all for products we can all get elsewhere.  So many people...don't they work or have better things to do?  () Anyway got my bargain pizzas, free tea n biscuits and free draw but declined the balloon.

I accept that Woody but with my own plants already "supplied" with stems it seems an obvious method.  Never lost a dahlia complete with stem.

Yes I think sparrows too.  They go for primulas, saxifrages etc.  you could try to cover with net to prove it.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Worrying news fidget.  I'm Wishing you all the best.  

Cold callers?  At the door I just say simply "no thanks".  On the 'phone, depending on my mood and what time I have, I have some fun.  ranging from being simple, to being interested, to simging songs, to being deaf.  I also find after sales guys annoying...."am I satisfied with Talk Talk's recent advice, or with my car service, etc.

Don't understand this folks.......pull tubers with stems apart.  Simples.  No need to wait for eyes or timing. ,totally fine to do it now.  As long as you keep tubers frost free this is a sure fire method.

To cut everything down, or leave.

I like to get everything cut down.....grasses apart to save time in spring.  Then it is hectic.  

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

I'm sure you will find a place for it Salino.  I'm a little like that with plants......I know I want them but dont know exactly where to put them at the time.

KEF, just between you and me, talking about your last maltesers I have a confession to make.  I ate a whole bag of packets of them.  I carefully prised out a bag, then another then another then......well they were so morish.  I gave them to my niece so I will have to replace them Tom morning.  Don't really like chocs 

mrsGarden, I'm sure your Amelanchier will look superb......lovely tree. 

Woody, I'm "into" conifers....which varieties did you plant?  Eleagnus, I remember, was something Christopher Lloyd tired of so we (I discarded mine too) are in good company.
