I’m certainly no financial adviser, but my policing bones would suggest that we are in for a period of financial scams! From April 2015 the rules surrounding pension funds changed and there are now more choices than ever before about how you can access your pension pot.

Garden Notes – It’s Not Your Fault

Garden Club

It’s so easy to blame yourself when something goes wrong in the garden but do not be so hard on yourself. This year mine and many other people’s daffodils have come up blind. Not a flower to be seen. If you looked up the problem you would be told to dig them up and divide them or look for narcissus fly. Ignore all this, give them a few handfuls of Growmore fertiliser, let the leaves die down and next year they will be fine. We have daffodils that have been in the same place for over thirty years. In that time we have had two or three blind years but they always come up trumps the next year. It is just that last year did not produce ideal growing conditions for them. Some have done well just to confuse you. Just tell yourself it is not your fault. ...

Lambing is now complete and went very well with only 4 lamb deaths and lots of healthy lambs. A huge thanks to all who helped especially Sally who did most of the work. A summary of the results are as detailed:- ...

Our bees need you, but not as much as you need them One of every three mouthfuls of food we eat depends on pollination taking place. As well as bees, other species like butterflies, moths, flies, beetles and wasps all play their part in essential pollination. Some £510 million of annual total crop sales in the UK are pollinated by bees and other insects. ...
