National nude gardening day!

Abbey House has loads of Roses. I never saw them as a hazard before!!

No GW tonight?

Yes Ginag. I shall be there. I try to go to both this and the Autumn show too. It's a cross between  Chelsea and Hampton Court, but much more civilised.

I love the gardens at Malmsbury where the "Naked" gardeners created a wonderful garden in the shadow of the old cathedral. Called "Abbey House".

There have been regular complaints about T&M over the years I have been on here. I once ordered coreopsis only to end up with 50 lavenders instead, substituted when they failed to meet my order. That's two crimes. Failure to anticipate the demand, and then sending something not even vaguely suitable instead.

Hello T&M, still not good enough, until at least your line manager comes on here and gives us practical solutions to our complaints and problems. No more apologies please ... just solutions.

Hello Natalie, When I suffered poor service from T&M about 10 years ago this was the excuse trotted out then. It is not acceptable to quote you are busy. It is up to you to have sufficient resources to cope. 

If I suggested that your advertising should say..." if we are busy we warn you now that we will keep you waiting"  you would think me stupid. However this is effectively what we are experiencing. 

I wish I had a free packet of seeds for every time I have been told that "we are experiencing an unexpected level of business..." Basically you are under-resourced to satisfy our needs.

I have not used them in years since a similar example of very poor service. Finally asked for a full refund and got one.

Shame, because I think they once did have a good reputation.

I wouldn't be without it. Especially on here or reading on-line newspapers. 

How much stone to remove.

Posted: 30/04/2015 at 22:39

OK to remove some big chunks, but sifting not necessary. Focus on improving the soil with your compost. No need to hump stone unnecessarily. 

Weeds ?

Bindweed. Lift the tuber carefully and change the compost. There's still time.

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.
