Jasmine like dampness you could maybe sit your pot in a gravel tray to encourage a bit of humidity if the conditions in your house are too warm and dry. Ive found they dont like direct sun light! mine are sitting to the side of the window.I feed now and then. Ive found both my jasmine flower about christmas for 6 to 8 weeks. I have one in the kitchen and one in the bathroom both about 5 years old

That's good I think my lot are pretty happy with me too, luckily I like cooking. My OH will cook but hes very much a Gordon Ramsay especially near serving point when it all has to come together I try and stay out of the way then!!

I'm going to fool my lot next week with Kates keema (curried mince) which I make now and then, they will panic that they wont like it, they wont know the word Keema 

Zumba I'm very impressed I once went to a step class in the village hall in the end the instructor would say everyone do this and Jenny you do what you like I stopped going soon after that..

Thats good to hear Palaisglde Im from outside Inverness, a beautiful area very untouched by modern life just the way I like it apart from broadband of course. and still raining!!!

I loved Inverness, we were in an Hotel near the river about centre of town. The people could not do enough for us and I was amazed at the Restaurants, you could eat a different place each evening on so many cuisines. At the Hotel at Loch Lomond I ate "Bonney Prince Charley" a local delicacy mainly Aberdeen Angus but so sweet and tender, costly mind but how many can say they ate him?


well matured then!!  Still pouring rain

Bad service, bad plants beware!

I did an order with my friend with Parkers Wholesale in her name. I dont want to bother my friend but Im not happy with the candelabra primulas they were supposed to be mixed but have all turned out yellow! I want to complain do you think I could without telling my friend. I know she wouldnt be happy to do it. I was so looking forward to different colours as its only yellow I had

The flour and water is working. I emptied the pot this morning to find ovewr 20 slugs and 2 more snails. A bumper catch for last night! Some of the slugs were just small about 1cm long but other sizes up to a 3inch one! I'm well chuffed and the delphiniums are still standing. Hurrah!

A piece in my local paper suggests sinking any plastic dish ie. marge pot for example into the soil, then adding 2 tablespoonsful of flour and filling it up with water. A great slug trap she says. I've done one today near my delphiniums. I'll let you know if it works.

 Sorry got quotes wrong way round read the bottom one first
