Hot weather and water

Some of the UK water companies are beginning to be concerned about water use as the present weather is hot and has been dry in parts of the country suffering from a severe lack of rainfall . Obviously we are not self sufficient in rainfall at present. Not making it easy for farmers, growers, allotme...

Re: Morbid question alert

I think that Maggie is right - there is usually an area designated for remembrance and that area takes a lot of ashes.

Re: Weed killing on lawns

You'l do the wrong sort of killing if you put weed killer on lawns when it's very dry. I'm afraid that's usually the best way to kill the lawn.

Re: High street shops

I've tried supporting the local high street. Wanted a new printer - mono laser, print duplex, preferably Brother. Not a problem as there's a business shop down street that's been there for years. Most of his stationary is expensive but he's usually good with printers (last one took 24 hours to deliv...

Re: High street shops

Ina that's part of the reason why the high street is not doing well. It's the old folks that go round looking in shops saying isn't that expensive and not buying things. Or the odd youngster like Odsox with nothing better to do. :mrgreen:

Re: High street shops

The coin has two sides. Lots of times small traders don't look at the pedestrian flow when opening a shop. Neither do they look at the competition. Nor do they consider whether what they have to offer is going to attract the punters in that particular high street. Sad lack of market research. Mind i...

You only know how good an idea something is when you get involved in the hard labour is my maxim. Glad to hear the work progresses mind.

Yes in my opinion - especially this year as everything is growing late.

This planting out after all danger of frost - well the weather forecast never consults the growers about when it would be convenient to have the last frost.

Re: No rubbish fortnight

Your charges sound about the same as ours Skippy. Mind you, small electricals such as computer printers, radios, TVs, can be put in the appropriate skip free of charge. If you have a car to get there. Dunno about big things like cookers and fridges.

Re: No rubbish fortnight

This week is a much rubbish fortnight. The elderly huge printer went to the electrical bin at the local household waste recycling centre. Of course there is all the packaging left over from the new one. There's a huge number of empty compost sacks to go to the same place from the allotment shed at s...
