I also bookmarked. Thanks! Love any new tricks I might be able to use when it comes to gardening. Wonder if a copper pipe will work for algae in a pond?

Thanks Kit. Vita Sackville-West always carried some potatoes with her when she visited friends' gardens. She placed cuttings in them to keep them moist until she could get them back to her famous Sissinghurst Castle Garden.I must admit I used to travel with potatoes also.

As the ice sheets recede, we are almost ready to look into some of these for this year ... IFF the snow actually goes away.
