Planting a hedge

I'm about to order some hedgerow plants to replace the fence in my gardens. I've seen packs of 2 year old bare rooted stock for sale realitively cheaply.

Re: Favourite board games.

I remember PIT, good game and quite like the idea of pandemic, will look it up. Backgammon is my absolute favourite. Big fan of Scrabble too, unless playing against someone who is impossible to beat. Trival pursuit always comes out too but I'm still not that sure I really enjoy playing it. It can be...

Re: Does anyone NOT have a television?

To pick up on what Zech said It makes me feel a bit guilty about not paying the license fee, really! and I assume I'm courting controversy here but...I know we might bemoan the TV licence and the fact that we have to pay it, but I know I'd happily pay £300 a year for access to Radio 4 alone. I'm won...

Happy Christmas one and all

Just wanted to wish members new and old, lurkers and even the spammers (well perhaps not the spammers) a very happy Christmas and a great new year. May your homebrew be vintage, may your chickens continue to lay, may the cats stop digging up your seedlings and crapping on them, may your runner beans...

Lets not call last orders at the Selfufficientish pub

In the past we used to used the analogy that this forum is like a local pub and the same social rules apply. The comparison states that most people wouldn't walk into a public house/bar and start shouting at people randomly, nor would they sit down with strangers and try to deliberatley wind them up...

Hmm..... or perhaps a photo comp! S...
