Re: Late Winter Bits and Bobs

Have you ever considered getting a storage battery for your panels, Geoff...although I know they are very expensive!

Re: Happy Birthday

Dear Westi, I wish you the happiest of Birthdays and hope you have an equally happy day. You really are a very, very special member of the forum and never seem to let a question go un-answered, or a new member feel welcome...and as for the smiles and laughter, you never let us down...Happy Birthday ...

Re: Rose Bushes.

I have always thought there was more to these Smart meters than what they were saying...

I'm sure when people first have them, they probably watch things, but as a couple of months go by, things just go back to normal...of course, I could be wrong... :)

Re: Environmesh question

A warm welcome to the forum, Tyke57... I agree with with Retropants, never had any trouble with pigeons and Garlic. You are meant to be able to just lay Enviromesh over plants but, it always seems to have less give in it than fleece, so I have never used it like that...I have some frames that I cove...

Re: Late Winter Bits and Bobs

Most of them will follow the subsiding water, Primrose, but I suppose a few will get caught out...

Just started raining again here...glad I got started early this morning.

Re: Late Winter Bits and Bobs

Just weeded through my large front border, a little too wet to be on really but, just needed to get some of my huge job list completed.
Looks a lot better, lots of new shoots coming through the ground and on the Roses too...they certainly will not like it if we get a -5 or below...

Re: Late Winter Bits and Bobs

Kind thoughts, Westi, i'm certainly up for letting someone else have my seeds...I can't really think what else we can do at present...suppose Mother Nature has to take her course first, regarding the flooding!

Re: Late Winter Bits and Bobs

That's a nusiance, Geoff, I do hope you manage to get it sorted.

Repaired my Mum's greenhouse Wednesdy, where a branch had blown through it...just had a call from her, another one has gone through in exactly the same place....you have to smile :)
