Hello folks, Back in Worcester on Nanna Duty for a couple of days so no gardening for me.  Because the days are sunny I've had to leave the greenhouse door open while I am away even though the nights are cold.  I'll be back home tomorrow night so I'm hoping plants are going to be OK till then.

LP sorry to hear about your Aunt I hope that it doesn't prove too serious.

Too scared to look at your lamp Dove.  John Lewis website is fatal for me

Off for a browse be back later.

Rat spotted

Not seen Roddy since that one and only sighting.  Haven't fed the birds since.  Thought I would give it a few weeks.  They have plenty of natural food at the moment, lots of berries about and they aren't feeding little ones.  When the weather gets cold I will attempt to feed them again and see what happens.

I really would like a cat Fruitcake but secondborn is allergic to them so it's not an option.  Anyway knowing my luck it would catch the rat and bring it in as a present.

Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

Posted: 01/11/2014 at 23:08

David, I know we planted our sweet peas at around the same time and that we are in similar location.  Mine are about 4 inches tall now with a single stem.  Should I pinch the tops out now so that they bush out.  Must say they have been great seeds, every one has germinated.

Progress so far

Amazing job Daryl, I'd love to get rid of the big conifers at the end of my garden but I would be really overlooked by the neighbours.  If there's one niche in the gardening market it's for someone to come up with an evergreen hedge/tree that grows really quickly and stops when it's about 10ft tall they would make a fortune.
