I love them, but never heard the name 'mufilier' - my dad always sowed some and we call them 'gueules de loup' (wolf's mouth/gob).
I’d never heard them called Muflier either, my neighbours also call them gueules de loup.

We’ve had ours for three years now, just the first time using it here in the ‘new’ place.. its an Intex Layzee spa brand, fits 4 adults who are quite friendly :-)

Once setup you can just leave it, change filters and add chlorine etc. I empty it few uses though and replace the water.. it’s very easy, out of the box and setup in 30 mins, an hour to fill it, 6 hours to heat it to 35 degrees.

It’s good fun. We bought it from Aldi I think.. Although it’s Intex, the box and instructions were Aldi branded ..

You obviously need a hose to fill it but also consider where you will empty it .. another length of hose to a drain or something ..
Ah, okay. Thanks.
Can you leave it up all through the winter, then? And does it retain heat well and heat up just as quickly in very cold weather?

For sure , we’ve left it up through winter with the heater running it stays warm all the time, big clouds of steam when the cover comes off.. once it reaches temperature it just maintains it.. i didn’t notice a big electric bill.

It has an inflatable cover which fits snugly and speeds up the heating and keeps it clean of course..

In winter from cold, you just turn it on at lunch time and it’s 35 degrees by the time you use it at night.

Re: How about a gardening thread?

Those LazySpas are great - but although there is plenty of space a top- legs is another story. Which is fine I exchanged it for a hard one after a couple of years. But LazySpas are a very good value option.

Re: How about a gardening thread?

Can one cut back a clematis Jackmani after it has bloomed and the flowers started to wither up and turn brown, in order to get a second lot of flowers in the same season?

There was a large clematis plant in our garden when we moved in. It's thick stems were wound around a pole. I cut the entire thing down because I found the stems to look a bit ugly and out of control, and the plant keeps trying to grow back out of the ground. Not sure which kind of clematis it is, but it had pale pink flowers.

It depends what group the clematis is in as to îf and when you can cut it back.

Jackmanii is in group 3.

Re: How about a gardening thread?

Lovely flowers!


My husband has been really good about not only coming to the garden with me, but helping out, too!



Meanwhile, the veggies are mostly planted, and today I cleared out a section that was wild flowers, but it got out of hand and now there are lettuces and carrots planted there.



I plan on a LOT of sunflowers this year!
