Gardening Tips

Your fortnightly gardening tips for indoors and outdoors
Sheringham Community Paper

Flowers, Shrubs and Trees
Keep deadheading annuals.  Dry flowers including hydrangeas for winter arrangements.   Save seed pods of flowers you want to propagate.  Keep deadheading roses and spray against aphids and mildew.  Begin planting spring flowering bulbs.   Prepare the soil for planting trees and shrubs in the winter by digging in manure and compost.  Order roses, shrubs, bulbs and herbaceous plants.  Start planting lily bulbs.
Fruit, Vegetables and Herbs
Continue sowing winter cabbage, lettuce and spinach.  Thin out earlier sowings.   Start to order new fruit trees and bushes to plant in the winter.  Continue to plant strawberries.  Take cuttings of blackcurrant, gooseberry and redcurrant bushes.   Cuttings should be about 9in of this years wood.  When blackberries and raspberries etc have fruited, cut the canes back and stake the new ones.  Towards the end of the month pull up your tomato plants.  Unripened fruit will ripen if put in a paper bag in a drawer. Other jobs, keep weeding, rake your lawn to rid it of dead grass and moss.  Give it autumn lawn fertilizer and aerate it. Complete any maintenance jobs before the weather breaks.  Remove all plants from the greenhouse and wash it with Jeyes fluid, scrubbing benches.  Close the windows and give it a smoke.   Continue taking pelargonium cuttings.  Also try impatiens and fuchsias.

Embarrassing Stories

Sheringham Community Paper

I was taking a shower when my 2-year-old son came into the bathroom and wrapped himself in toilet paper.  Although he made a mess, he looked adorable, so I ran for my camera and took a few shots.  They came out so well that I had copies made and included one with each of our Christmas cards.  Days later, a relative called about the picture, laughing hysterically, and suggesting I take a closer look.  Puzzled, I stared at the photo and was shocked to discover that in addition to my son, I had captured my reflection in the mirror - wearing nothing but a camera!

Filming came to an unexpected stop in the heart of London last month during The Constantia Brothers latest music video shoot.  Security chiefs moved in half way through a scene where the brothers were dressed in traditional Cypriot costume complete with headscarves and guitar cases.  Trafalgar Square security cameras obviously picked up the scene that looked suspicious to say the least.   All ended well and there was a last minute switch to London Bridge.  This is by far the biggest production The Constantia Brothers have embarcked on and its extraordinary to think it should come when the boys have taken a step back from performing to produce and direct others. "Such is the music game" explains Andreas, chief PR for the band, "things come when least expected in the industry and it just underlines how unpredictable the music business can be."
