Looks like weather will be drier than originally thought,altho' not hot! Village hall will be open for teas, cakes etc and if you want a pub lunch the Bat and Ball on the A338 about a mile away is very good. The pub in Woodgreen is OK too. Looking forward to seeing you. Have you looked at the Woodgreen website sent you by acerman?

This product used to be in children's chemistry sets when I was young and you could make invisible ink with it!!!!!!!!

You may not appreciate how encouraging you have all been. It's been a real motivator  knowing that you have all been keeping a watchful eye on me, and that who knows what your response would have been had I bottled it. Now the slog is over I can enjoy my garden and gardening to the full.

What's the weather like in your area?

Hi V., showers this morning and amazingly windy for this time of year. Sunny now. Irises have had a bit of a battering.

Please help identify :)

You may well have originally had a bleeding Heart-Dicentra- and this has died. Aquilegias pop up all over the place and it is highly likely that the soil you were given had the aquilegia seed in it and this has now taken over. I love both.

Hi everyone again, back indoors after garden finally put to bed for the great day. Don't uncross those fingers yet but latest forecast is "less bad" than before . Just been to cream tea in neighbouring village for Marie Curie, now feet up for an hour before indoor stuff takes over. Nice piece of pork to cook tonight with pepper sauce, and Rioja.  See you on the other thread later. Thanks.

Just one more flower border to tidy up, and I am done. BBC still hedging their bets on the weather for tomorrow, so at least there is hope. Thanks for all your posts... I can feel the vibes...

Gardeners world show

HC is different from Chelsea. Good thing is that it is a much bigger site and less crowded, altho' more tiring because of distances to be walked. Show gardens are not as grand, altho' can still be interesting. You can buy plants on any day. Strangely Chelsea opens very early in morning..  0830?, but HC makes you wait to 1000, which seems ridiculous and unnecessary. Easy to park car at HC. Great breakfasts at the Tiltyard restaurant. Downside is that it is fast becoming a "lifetstyle" event and gardening seems to be taking the back seat.

I left HC very disappointed last year but may give it one more go. If you want to go to a good show try Malvern in Spring with a revisit in Autumn. My personal favourites

Talkback: How to harvest sweetcorn

They are much better microwaved for about 3 mins., turned over, mw for 3 more mins. Lot less bother than boiling . Keep flavour and scrunch.
