Hi New here. Was looking up something and noticed the forum. Couldn't resist
Hi addict, welcome
Welcome to the forum. I notice you are a plantswoman...I'm a plantsman. Look forward to your comments, advice and opinions on the forum. I'm always trying the new varieties and just love plants.
Welcome addict Good to have you aBoard
Hi addict, nice to meet you
Welcome addict. Everyone on the forum is great
Hiya, think we've already met on a link..welcome.
Wow such a friendly bunch Thank you for the lovely welcome. Question...How do I look up your profiles? When I click on your name my profile comes up!
That's this weeks forum surprise, addict. Usually if you click on someone else's profile that's what you get. I should think it will be sorted after the weekend
Oh good glad its not me being stupid lol
I was a bit surprised, had to try several times before I believed it wasn't me
So annoying. Want to know about everyone. What they do, where they are in the country, their likes, dislikes etc. etc. etc. Will have to be patient I guess...not good at that...Nutcutlet tell me about you please
Hi addict, I live near Peterborough, 2 acres for wildlife. Newts, moths, bats, dragonflies and damselflies are the stars.
I'm 27 like a lot of forum members, retired 8 years ago.
2 acres Nut - oh wow, soooo jealous... Maybe when I'm retired, in 15 years or so!!!!
Hi hollie hock and thanks nutcutlet. Sounds idyllic 27 is the age to be huh?
I live on south coast between Brighton and Eastbourne. My 'garden' is 7m by 4.6m and paved. I grow everything in pots.
Oh and I'm 27
Hi Bev Can you grow quite tender plants?
Hi addict - another 27 year old here - there's a lot of us about It's absolutely the best age to be and I'm joining Nutcutlet in Retirementland on 5th November This Year!!! (I may have mentioned it before somewhere - I'm quite excited about it )
We're in a village just on the edge of Norwich and have a small garden (but much bigger than the tiny back yard we've come from).
Wildlife is important to us and we have hedgehogs, frogs, dragonflies, bats and lots of birds visiting us. We have two big ash trees at the end of our garden, and we're keeping our fingers very crossed that the don't get the Die Back disease - they are so important to the birds here. Our garden is near to an SSSI which is where the bats live, and close to a river and marshland nature reserve.
We have a small veg patch and our Shady Bank full of perennials, roses and climbers. There's a woodland area under the trees, and next year's project is to create a largeish bed in the front garden, which at the moment is completely down to lawn.
I've gardened all my life, and always had a biggish garden and a smallholding until 20 years ago when my circumstances changed and I moved into the city - the frustrations of a northfacing 8'x10' city yard are well known to me - but now I have a proper garden again, and an Under Gardener to mow lawns, hang birdboxes and rescue me when I get stuck on the Shady Bank
Was anyone standing by to video your rescue from the shady bank Dove?
