Worst Winter ....... .?

Had me fooled. Tell me, was that summer? You wouldn't want to go out in the winter.

Thanks Dove, "your worshipfulness" will suffice , but only while walking backwards.

Isn't Parsley pretty hardy? I have some in the veg. patch which is 18 months old and heading into it's second winter.

Good morning everyone. Still in bed with my head cold. I feel a bit of a fraud. It's sometime and nothing but it's the AGM of the Horticultural Soc. tonight and I need to get my energy up. Feels better already, so should be good. Don't tell anyone but I may be the new Chairman by this time tomorrow .

What  a good combo.  BF and AS would do nicely. Much prefer CK to CW.

I think it's about time we had some new blood presenting GW and Chelsea, and by new I don't mean young and wet behind the ears. I have had enough of MD, and AT has gone all silly. CB is probably the best of the current crop. CK is OK. I like AS and TB. RdT is fine. AF and SR can stay at home as far as I am concerned and JS probably too.  A new GH is what I need or AT before he went walkabout. Does anyone know of anyone else?

Rose ignorance

Aside from discussing the problems we may have with our roses does everyone agree that this year has been one of the best for quality and quantity of blooms. I am not sure of the reason, but this has been the best year ever for me....

I did ask Stewart Pocock why this might be and he said that roses had had a very long dormant season in which to rest and build up their reserves. Unlikely then that next year will be as good?

Help I made a weeping willow purchasing mistake, can it be potted??

I am afraid we all make mistakes from time to time. There's no real alternative to getting rid of this tree altogether. If you can't find a new home for it, then it's the chop. Please don't compound things by putting it in a pot. The CTW  ( cruelty to willows)  police will soon find out.

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.
