    Most lillies are happy outside , cut the old growth back to ground level and they will appear next Spring

  4. As far as I am concerned do what the law dictates and carry your Passport and vehicle documents at all times

    Having been stopped in France, Spain and Portugal at gun point I have/they had no interest in discussing the finer idiotic English view points

    If its a law abide by it, before we know it the UK will be happy for photo copy passports on the basis they turn up a few days later with the original, maybe they do that already
  5. HI

    Wait until the plant becomes dormant ie first frost or mid February if a mild Winter ignore the old brown stems they are dead


    PS I love the flowers but buy the preprepared bits from Leader Price
  6. Hi

    Not sure about your shoots they should have flowered by now Neverttheless dig them up/split them when thy have died down ie gone brown

  7. As I have no interest for 18 years do not really care but they all seen to have ideas that have no chance its all to be popular and be realected
  8. I agree


    It keeps popping up but regular glysophate will do it in
  9. Sound good but if my threads are an important bit of gear I would like them to match up rather than just do I suspect its its reason wheels fall off
  10. My experience is that they all are metric and pretty useless on any machinery

    If you are talking studs is that is left and right hand threads on the same bolt you have no chance outside specialists

    I assume the drive shaft/ thread is worn so if you have a lathe any die will sought. but my advice is to get a spare from the manufacture
  11. That's interesting the last two posters are not French residents and one thought it " Funny " but have mega posts here, ten thousand between them on a French site Do they really know what its like to live here for 20 years full time in France

    Tescos are crap compared to any French super market

    One said "Am I interested in its huge Asian section, including subsections representing almost the whole of Asia, a Caribbean section, Polish, American, Irish (yes, really, for the last two), Italian, Turkish... A bit upsetting if you are English.It also has an optician, dentist and pharmacy" so b what

    NO I live in France and like the local produce and by the looks of it you prefer the Asia, a Caribbean section, Polish, American, Irish (yes, really, for the last two), Italian, Turkish. so why bother posting
  12. "Lucky dog; wish I could take mine there"

    Give it a try 10 years back I lived close to you in the Correze but now as of mid October of to the Aude

  13. The last time I was in Tescos was over 3 years ago and I thought how drab it was, very few choices, No butcher, fish monger, few cheeses fresh bread etc it was piled it high and limited stock

    The staff never said hello or goodbye Its time for them to go and allow suppliers to make an honest profit
  14. Hi

    As I have lived here for the last 10 years I suggest the Pays Basque

    Spring is a good time its not that cold here we often have a sit in the sun between 11 and 3 in mid winter


    PS the Pyrenees range is over 200 miles and a lot of different climates try both ends its about 4and a half hours drive on the auto routes
  15. Lauerd me steres, noght wante sal me:

    In stede of fode þare me louked he.

    He fed me ouer watre ofe fode,

    Mi saule he tornes in to gode.

    He led me ouer sties of rightwisenes,

    For his name, swa hali es.

    Through how many tongues/bishops did this faith rubbish evolved into English and did it help our ancestors give me a few examples of the beneficiaries
  16. Still one can get Doliprane suppositories in France try asking for those in Boots!

    I tried these totally useless.

    For what they were worth may as well shoved them up my ##############

  17. I had one of these phone calls a year back my lovely wife was so fed up she handed the phone to me in the garden I just held the phone to the lawnmower exhaust and using a few expletives over the din suggested he went elsewhere and multiplied

    He rang me back and said it was a bad line, I could not believe it
  18. "I utterly abhor people sending me emails which commence with "Hi": what, pray, is wrong with "Hello"? I am not American."

    Hi is an English word 300 years older than Hello first used in the 1800's

    PS just found this LOL Hello, formerly an Americanism, is now nearly as common as hullo in Britain (Say who you are; do not just say 'hello' is the warning given in our telephone directories) and the Englishman cannot be expected to give up the right to say hello if he likes it better than his native hullo. [H.W. Fowler, "A Dictionary of Modern English Usage," 1926]
  19. Hi

    I think you are going over the top The colony is set they do not move more than eating distance from where they were laid My trees are much higher than any man made reach Yes I have dogs And have lived with the moths 19 years and unlike you have not walked into any problems no I have no pictures funny we can build a sky scraper but not a water proof ring around a 34 foot high tree As for you killing them in your trees what about others out of your control

    I wonder how man and dogs have survived so long with this terrible problem Never the less thanks for the heads up 6 months early but we live with them as best as we can

    PS as for being a female glow worm are you saying you wish to be a girl with a glowing bum sad
  20. Hi

    Great to bring this up but its certainly not a problem this time of year

    Spring brings them down but with a harsh winter the chances will be the majority have died or have been eaten by birds (seemingly Blue Tits are immune )

    The best way to control them is to make a water barrier on the trunk thereby drowning them it involves a bit of do it yourself but you need to wrap around the trunk wide guttering or an old split tyre obviously able to hold water and seated with cling film so they cannot get past in the bark fissures


  21. After living in the Correze for 8 years, here in the Pays Basque another 10 years hopefully the present house sale starts tomorrow

    We are looking at your Avatar's area for the next adventure

    Possibly as a a grumpy old git I could become your new neighbours from hell LOL

  22. OK We have cafe Prat here but I have never come across a cafe Condom
  23. Hi

    Cut the roots off your young pencil thin leeks but leave a half inch with scissors the same again with the leaves the plant x roots about a fist size it will now look like a paint brush

    Using a dibber or sharp thick stick make a hole 3 fingers deep and stick the leek in (if you pull out the dibber and plunge in the plant at the same time its a quick clean plantation) do nothing else but water in without a rose

    Plant just over your hoe width apart over winter eat the biggest
