Re: Rhubarb - how long before signs of life

Fingers crossed for your rhubarb Wulf, I love the stuff.

Does anyone know if this would be a good time to lift & replant rhubarb?

I'd like to put some in a pot so we can take some with us when we move (no moving plan so no rush), just wondered if this might be a good time while it's asleep? Jill

Re: My partial solution to container gardening

Suberb! Well done :thumbright: I have grown stuff in bags before but have been so convinced it won't work properly I have over watered in a frenzied state and constantly kept digging things up to check if they are ok :oops: ! Nice to see that if I calm down and just let the plants grow this time all...

Re: constipation prevention?!

Thankyou, great advice. Took Senacot last time I gave up smoking and gave me excruciating stomach pains, so will try Dulcolax if it comes to that. Haven't got any psyllium in so will get juicing tonight. Just finished a bowl of oats and linseed & drank the water I soaked them in. Have only soaked li...

constipation and smoking prevention?!

Hello, thought this had already been answered when I saw Susie's 'no-poo' post, but that turned out to be something quite different :oops: My Christmas present to myself is to give up smoking. When I've given up in the past I've become constipated :shock: and am hoping to avoid that this time. I'm d...

Re: Well that's it for another year!

Wowee! Your veggies look amazing and what a sweet idea making museli bars in a cake tin.

Your dogs are beauties, they look like real characters! Can't imagine Christmas on the beach but I'm sure I could get used to it if I had to :wink:

Thanks for the pics x

Re: Home Remedies for PMT and Pains please!

I struggled for years to come off the pill, the PMT and pains were so bad I kept giving in and just start taking the pill again. I went for ONE shiatsu massage treatment and my periods miraculously appeared at full moon every month, with far less pain and PMT. This lasted for about 2 years, then sta...

Re: Home Remedies for PMT and Pains please!

I used to use little electic patches that you stick on whatever part of your body is in pain and found them the best thing by far I had ever tried. Used to get them from the Natural Collection but they stopped doing them a couple of years ago and couldn't find them any where until this morning! http...

Re: 101 uses for a toilet tube insert

We use MOUNDS of them at the school I work at. Mostly the kids just use them for their own 'building projects' (mostly I have no idea what the little ones are making, one of my favourites last week was a cereal box with some gummed paper stuck on it, when I asked the wee man what he was making he sa...
