Re: Late Winter Bits and Bobs.

We certainly have had a lot more rain, last night and this morning….been running down our little lane for about two months now! This would have only happened, for a couple of days, every few years, up until about five years ago! Been sowing a few more seeds in the glasshouse, a little too early real...

Re: Late Winter Bits and Bobs.

Gosh Geoff, you both have had the most awful time….just can’t start to imagine how tough things must have been!
But the news on your Wife, sounds very promising and I wish her all the best.
Really good to hear you have fired the propagator up, too….

Re: Late Winter Bits and Bobs.

Probably something to do with the big variating temperatures they have to go through, Primrose!
Not sure how you can stop this though…..

Re: Lemon Tree

The pests are probably Scale insects….little flat things, that look like they are part of the stem/branch!
If it is Scale insect, you should be able to carefully scrape them off….

Thought I was going to get sunburnt today….what a beautiful day, after yesterday.

That’s very annoying, Westi!

Re: Late Winter Bits and Bobs.

Another dull and dreary day here….tried doing some hedgecutting for a customer, for a couple of hours but, admitted defeat…..I was soaked and the machines didn’t like getting so wet either!

Maybe tomorrow will be a brighter day….🙂

Re: Laurel - cyanide

Re: Late Winter Bits and Bobs.

Had a busy morning, mossed loads of pots of Hyacinths up and moved some pots of Narcissus from the small back glasshouse, into the big glasshouse, the big one gets more sunlight! Just sown some Beetroot, into some 12 section trays, 4 trays worth….. Now going to sort out some 2 litre pots of Herbaceo...

Re: Late Winter Bits and Bobs.

Evening Clive, Sam and Lily said to say hello!
They went to Shuttleworth today, firstly to have a walk around the Swiss Garden, then on to the plane collection….they had a lovely time…they asked if you had visited there before, but I wasn’t sure if you had, or not!

Re: Late Winter Bits and Bobs.

The ground is totally water-logged here again….the people that dug their allotments in the Autumn are going to struggle with their plots in the Spring, as they have all gone flat, with no air left in the soil!

Many years since we have had a Bullfinch here, Geoff.

Re: What is the right charger?
