    Hi Every autumn my city council takes part in a free tree scheme for local residents.There's a variety of saplings given away.Birch,crab apple,hawthorn, mountain ash, field maple, blackthorn, wayfaring etc. Unsure if this a countrywide scheme or just a local one. Maybe sound your council out.

    Well done New Zealand, first country to retain Bill. Didn't think they would,but they just had enough to fend off the Ozzie fightback.

    Hoggie, I feel for you. After the intercept try,I really thought you had it. To lose to an accidental offside ( which I know is a pen offense ), sucks.

    rugby world cup

    Probably should have posted this to start with before I launched into one. Well done Oz,thoroughly deserved win. @Troi.Guess we'll have to disagree about the foreign selection policy. My simplistic view is that they'll be a player drain to France,with the result that our clubs will simply fill...

    rugby world cup

    I went into last night's game more in hope than expectation. Sadly I lot of what has happened in the last 2 games you could see coming. The coaching staff has had 4 years to plan for a home world cup,and yet we end up with a midfield that had no game time together,and an openside who's only...

    rugby world cup

    What a weekend. Went from a high on Friday,whilst being in the middle of a bunch of Argie fans. (They know how to celebrate.) To a low ,watching us implode in the last 20 minutes yesterday. Can England bounce back in a win or bust game next weekend.? Enjoyed the USA & Canadian performances as well.

    rugby world cup

    Couldn't get tickets for this one,though I am going to Japan v USA. Mixed loyalties today,everyone loves an underdog and Japan play in the same strip as our local team. Against this the Scotland skipper plays for us. Japan faded a bit today when put under pressure.Only 4 days turnaround is...

    poor gold fish

    FWIW, and I stand to be corrected,but it's not banned. Only illegal to give to an unaccompanied child under 16. So they're still given as prizes.And still wrong. http://www.practicalfishkeeping.co.uk/content.php?sid=3926

    Not meant to be a personal dig but before we start pointing fingers,we need to get our own house in order. At the last 'fun' fair I went to,goldfish in plastic bags were hanging in the sunshine,waiting to be won.

    Water butt dosing?

    Just to get this right,you want to EI dose your rainwater butts to water the garden ?:D Imo you should get a bunch of stinging nettles,Chuck em in a bucket of water and wait a couple of weeks till you get a foul smelling brown liquid. This can be diluted 10:1 to give you a liquid feed.

    England or Wales? (rugby)

    Got a horrible feeling that it's going to be down to who kicks more, Farrell or Halfpenny. Robshaw vs Warburton should be an interesting battle at the breakdown. Heart = England Head=Wales (just)
