    Good morning all. Window fitters are here – out of all the trades we have used, window fitters seem to be the grumpiest :lol: Thankfully it is only 2 windows so they shouldn’t be here long. Enjoyed a weekend of gardening, moving stuff about and planting some new acquisitions. Also had a massive hay fever attack which was horrible. I don’t…[Read more]

    Good morning All … must get to garden centre for more odds and ends and also make a walk some time too, before the weather breaks…I would love some more April showers…watering two gardens every day takes ages! :lol: HAGD All :rose:

    Morning clickers, another smashing looking morning, though due to break tomorrow. :-( OH back to work so have the day to myself, need to start organising some watering in the greenhouse as we are away on Friday for a couple of days. Some capillary matting should do the trick. :good: Right, must make a start, so will catch up later. Have a good…[Read more]

    • Morning Karen. You can’t beat “me” days :-) I have loads of things to plant in the flower borders but am waiting until the rain has soaked them and when the forget me nots and muscari have finished I should have some gaps. Enjoy your day petal :-)

    • Have a lovely day Karen :rose:

    Good morning clickets. Last day of really good weather I believe but my garden does need rain and looking at the long range forecast we shall be getting that for the next week or so. I repotted 10 tomatoes yesterday in varying sized pots and 11 more to go. Some are flowering already!!! We had another lovely walk on another canal stretch and found…[Read more]

    • Morning Cilla, it’s lovely at the minute, but yes, due to change here today too. :-( I could get used to the warm stuff. ;-) Flowers on your toms already, blimey girl what size are they? :confused: Have a lovely day with your bestie. :-)

      • My toms are varying sizes and probably got stressed when it was cold overnight in the conservatory but only a couple have flowers. :lol:

    • Have a lovely day Cilla :rose:

  • Okay, thanks for that Tony, those numbers are useful :good: . I will have a further fidget with my gadget and see what comes about. It’s certainly not worth me paying for one that costs over £100! I’ll also get some lime for the greens as well as more Ericaceous compost for the potatoes and tomatoes and Berries :rose:

  • Well that’s my Thur morning sorted, I have been told I am not a S/C until Dec so cannot play in the Senions matches. I did not get my last winning prize but my name is still on the leader board.

    • Oh dear Vashte … I think that’s a shameful muddle on their part from what you say … rotten lot :confused:
      Go on enjoying anyway :good: :rose:

    My Teddies are appearing ,two out of four so far, and potatoes are at last coming thro’ :dance: :rose:

  • Well ’tis done now Tony and I think it will help to guide me a bit. Let’s face it I have gardened for over 60 years without any knowledge of soil PH just what flowers like which conditions. I hope it will guide me a bit with crop growing, which is mostly new to me. What part of it do you think is unreliable Tony?

    Morning all. Lovely walk yesterday at Cossington Meadows, lots of birdsong everywhere. Called at a nearby nursery and bought a white viticella clematis Prince George as I have been looking for a white one for ages. Did some reading in the summerhouse and watched two newts heading towards the frogspawn in the pond :-( Probably an early walk this…[Read more]

    • Good Morning to you , the courgette saga 2 were just showing this morning the rest I tipped out and they are the same as when I put them in, I have planted them again just to see. All have had had same treatment, Perhaps give them a bit of a soak like runner beans might be the answer.

      • gertie replied 1 day ago

        Good morning Tubs … yes, I have no potatoes yet either :disappointed: :-)
        Have a good day …. good luck with the courgettes :good: :rose:

    Morning all and Happy Easter, if you celebrate it. No plans as yet today, we may head out later but decided against a full day out. We had thought of going down to London but it’s pretty manic with all the protesters and none of us fancied sitting in a car and heading to the coast. Will probably head into Cambridge for a bite to eat or the…[Read more]

    Morning Clickers, It’s shaping up into another lovely day with just a slight haze at the minute. Lots done yesterday and have chucked everything out of the greenhouse bar the toms and cucurbits. Truck load of broccoli pricked out and strimmed round all the veg beds before retreating to the shade with a cold drink. :good: More garden time today me…[Read more]
