5ft Chimney Pot

Posted: 16/03/2016 at 23:46

Hi Sam, I'd say the soil is about 6inches from the top.  Hubby drilled some holes for drainage and I put a few inches of gravel in the bottom.

My daughter had a similar problem and solved it by spraying male urine along her fence

Afternoon all,  Been a busy morning, had to go over to Secondborn's new house to drop a cooker hood off.  I'd like to say that I'm sure she will be in before the baby arrives but personally I think it will be a miracle if she is.  It's an absolute building site.

We are having a 'baby shower' this weedend at Firstborns.  I'm supposed to be baking on Friday but at the moment I am still looking after grandchildren so unless we can find a  surrogate nanna for the day that may not happen, look out M&S here we come.

Hope Mr C improves Chicky,

Get well soon Lesley''s dadHave a nice holiday LilyP

Hi Sam, it's planted directly in the urn in John Innes 2.  I feed it with Clematis feed in March when it's pruned hard and during flowering.  It's Parisienne and only grows to 4ft and flowers continuously between May and October.

A clematis would be lovely I have one in an urn that looks lovely every year, take a look at Taylor's site.

Evening all, Nanna duty today so lots of cuddles and kisses.

I have ridden a horse twice.  The first time was a day trekking in the black mountains, it was terrible.  In one day it rained, thundered and lightened, hailed and snowed.  I had had a perm two days before so by the end of the day my hair looked like I had put my fingers in an electric socket. I was wearing driving gloves and they dyed the back of my hands green and the palms black.  My new Levis shrunk and dyed my legs navy blue.  When I got home I had to put a cushion in the bath so that I could sit down.

The second time was in Mexico (one of my signed disclaimer expeditions).  We rode through a fast flowing river, I was terrified.  Through a rain forrest (accompanied by security guards with machine guns) and came through a stand of trees to be greeted by a narrow shale path on the side of a mountain, the drop was unbelievable.  I decided the horse was much better at navigating this than I was so I dropped the reigns and held on to the saddle for dear life.  That finally cured me of my desire to ride.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

All the intentions were good but was aching too much to risk any more gardening so the last few jobs will just have to wait.

It's official

Ceanothus Concha is the one I had.  Lots of flowers and a strong colour.
