How big is this bag of white powder.  It could be really valuable in certain quarters!!

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.

Evening folks, hope everyone is OK.  Had a phone call today from Grandaughter to ask if she could come for a sleep over I said yes and she bought her sister, mum and dad with her!

Have had a good night and we watched Disneys Maleficient while Firstborn and SIL went out for a meal. 

Planted some more Alliums and Tulips today, also dug up a conifer that I didnt really like.  I've revised my estimation on how long it will take to spike the lawn, I think it's more likely to be 4 weeks rather than 4 days based on the amount I can do before my back rebels.  Hopefully I can do a bit more tomorrow and also empty a few more pots.

Thanks everyone for responding.

Bonkers weather

Funny you should say that VS I planted a load of Alliums in early October and they have sprouted.  I think I may have overdone the Alliums.  I ordered a load at BBC Gardeners world and then couldnt resist the offer in the mag.  Hope the whole garden doesnt smell of onions.
