Welcome Hi There,

Almost Spring

Welcome to our “Love is in the air” February Edition. It’s Valentine’s day on the 14th and if you would like to send that special someone a special delivery of flowers, we have The Rainham Rose in South Rainham (See page 3) or Oops a Daisy in Hornchurch, (See Page 5) who will be sending out their Lovely flowers to lucky Guys and Girls throughout the Basildon area. Next month is Mother’s Day so why not book your flowers early!! Chiane (the little girl from our January edition) is in Great Ormond Street Hospital and doing quite well at the moment considering what she has been through. She has successfully come through stage one of her Very High Dosage of Chemotherapy and is recovering well. For a full update please visit her website www.helpmefightcancer.co.uk We still have a few tickets available for the Maharaja Charity evening on the 15th February with all profits going to Chiane. We have now raised close to £1700 and are hoping to reach our target of £3000. If you would like to join us, or donate to Chiane, please do not hesitate to contact me on 01702 690271 or you can send in donations by cheque made payable to Chiane Cloete to Unit 7 Durham Road, Laindon, Essex. SS15 6PH. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far and a big thank you to everyone who has organised their own fund raising events. Eblonline.co.uk. is still trying hard to raise money for Chiane by offering a business page for 6 months for a donation of £25 which will all go to Chiane’s fund. We have local money saving vouchers updated regularly on our website. Please register for free and you can receive regular discount updates and news or just visit www.eblonline.co.uk to view. Last month’s Quiz winners were: Julian Negus from Fleet Road, Upminster who won a £50 meal voucher for Bekash Restaurant and Mrs Kilmartin from Coniston Road, Upminster who won a party for 10 at Romford Bowling. I hope you enjoy your prizes and please let us know by leaving a comment on eblonline.co.uk.

Almost Spring

by Sharon Longshaw

We are having such a mild winter here in the South East that you might be tempted to start some gardening jobs a little early, I’ve been slightly tempted myself but have a niggling feeling that the weather might well still turn on us yet, please keep in mind that the Great British weather can be a fickle friend to the gardener and try to refrain from going too spring crazy. February is the time to prune back Wisteria’s and conservatory climbers. Winter flowering shrubs should be cut back once they have finished blooming and all shrubs should be fed with Chicken Manure. Chicken manure provides Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium to you plant’s, it also adds organic matter and increases the water holding capacity of the soil around the roots of your plants. Clear any fallen leaves away from Snowdrops and other early bulbs so that you don’t miss them flowering, if necessary thin bulbs out once the blooms have died back.

into the empty netting leftover from hanging suet balls or similar and hang them up around the garden, the birds use the hair to line their nests to keep their eggs cosy. Seed potatoes will be appearing in stores now so if you plan on having an early crop start chitting them now in a cool, light, frost free area so that the shoots can start forming ready for planting out in late March/early April. Lastly I’ve seen people out cropping their lawns very low already, this isn’t a good idea just yet. If the blades of grass are starting to bend with weight I would advise just nipping the ends off by having your mower on its highest setting if you really can’t wait. However as we are not out of the woods yet as far as frosts are concerned I would hold off a little longer to reduce the chance of frost damage.

Happy Valentines Day!

Moss will be loving these warm damp conditions start killing it with ferrous sulphate, once treated the moss will turn black a week to 10 days after applying the ferrous sulphate and will need to be raked out, particularly bare areas can to be reseeded from early March if there is no frosts forecast. Shape Evergreen hedges and renovate overgrown deciduous hedges now so that they do not have to be disturbed once the wild birds start nesting. Small twigs can be left in piles so that the birds have readily available materials for nest building, if like me you are a dog owner you could also save the hair collected whilst grooming, put the shed hair

Breakfast in Bed this Valentine’s Day Eggs Benedict with Parma Ham Method

1. Half fill a frying pan with water. Bring to the boil, then add the vinegar. Reduce the heat so the water is just simmering gently, then carefully break the eggs into the water, one at a time. Poach for 3–4 minutes, spooning the hot water over the yolks towards the end of cooking. 2.

Meanwhile, preheat the grill to high. Lightly toast the muffin halves for about 1 minute on each side. Place one half on each of 4 warmed plates and top each with a slice of Parma ham, crumpled slightly to fit.

Ingredients 1 tsp vinegar - 4 eggs 4 English muffins, halved 4 slices Parma ham, about 55 g (2 oz in total, trimmed of fat) 1 tbsp snipped fresh chives Paprika Warm Hollandoise Sauce

3.

Using a draining spoon, remove the poached eggs from the pan, one at a time. Rest on kitchen paper to drain off any water and, if liked, trim off any ragged edges of egg white with scissors. Place an egg on top of each ham-topped muffin half.

4. Spoon the warm hollandaise sauce over the eggs, and sprinkle each serving with a pinch of paprika and chives. Serve immediately, with the remaining toasted muffin halves.

Happy Valentines Day
