It's not right to get bugs just when spring starts. Don't they know you've got stuff to do

I was going to say that sleepless nights may be a good time to do all the planning but then I felt that would be adding insult to injury and we can't afford to lose Artjac

I will be happy to forward some seeds just let me know when and where to 

11/03/2014 at 19:37

Hi Jools6 - thanks for offering seeds, I have sent you a message with gardenjeannie's address - she has volunteered to be our Chief Seed Collector!

I too have packets of seeds which I'm willing to donate. Just give me the address for posting on. Rooted cuttings of hydrangea, dogwood and small bay also available as/ when/ where required. **pms not working too well for me at present, though??

11/03/2014 at 21:33

Fantastic David!  Will try to PM you.

11/03/2014 at 21:37

Thank You Jools and David.

Artjak, he's a wee pic to cheer you up

How's that for a good start?

So, Everyone, what a great evening I have had. 

The first seeds arrived today, And what a lot! See my post above. The first 4 parcels arrived today, wooo hooo

It was as exciting as getting parcels for myself. Like Christmas. Loads of seeds I've had a great time sorting them and filing them.

So huge thanks go to;-

Tracey Newbie


Pinkquartet (all in alphabetical order, too although I had a swine of a job opening that parcel!)

And Chicky.

All proving what lovely people frequent this forum.

So let's not stop there. More needed yet, I have a box to fill

David, have PMd you with my address, hope you got it. Let me know here if not.

Whoooo - hooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!

What can I say?  You are all BRILLIANT!

11/03/2014 at 21:59

Aren't they just? Now it really feels as if we're helping. I'm also saving everyone's notes to put in the box(es), as I think they would be nice for the recipients to see the sentiments expressed. I'm really touched, so I'm sure they would be, too.

11/03/2014 at 22:22

It's a pleasure GJ, if I'd have known about the notes I would have made more effort and written neater.  Now I feel like those children that didn't make an effort at school that we were talking about on another thread the other day 

11/03/2014 at 22:45

Don't be daft, Tracey. They won't care about your writing, and it looks fine to me, anyway! It's the thought that counts.

11/03/2014 at 22:58

Gardenjeannie, I've sent you a small parcel too - not many I'm afraid, and mainly half-packets, but hope they'll add to the collection!   Should be with you in a couple of days.


11/03/2014 at 23:27

Thanks, Rosie. Doesn't have to be loads, all helps. Mine are mainly half packets, too.
