Phili2, I will be taking veg plants down (what are lab labs? 'scuse my ignorance) I am also taking many herbs, as some are very good ground cover, apart from being instantly usable like oregano and marjoram, which even if your garden is a complete disaster area, you can cut some herbs for supper. That has to make you feel better about your garden?
Wind has died down here at last. Have a lovely Sunday
AJ...........I don't have many herbs to give away Lab Labs are similar to Mange Tout..........nice purple scented flowers and edible flat pods.............best grown on a post and wire system I find. I'll include my spare veg on my next trip to Andrew then.
Lucky you............here the wind is still very fierce.............nasty gusts that take you unawares.
I spoke too soon about the weather; driving rain here in the Fens.
Tuesday bump. I can't wait to take all these plants down to Somerset; hopefully will be going in 2 weeks time.
Hope you have a nice time AJ...........everywhere here is looking beautiful and very green..........I also meant to say before, I found it easier to deliver to Andrew via the Farm entrance.............not so far to hump boxes and bags of plants as you can park just a few yards from his garden.
Philippa, is Andrew the person running the plant creche? Could you pm me with his details please?
AJ.......yes, it is Andrew who is dealing with the plants.
Sorry......I don't know why I can't PM you...........can you send me a quick PM so I can just "reply".......I can give you the directions then. I presume you are coming down the M5 ?
Philippa, I have emailed you
AJ......didn't get anything but have emailed you just now with details
Philippa, the email I sent has been returned, but I did have the right address. Have sent you another, hope that arrives; am away for a few days so offline.
Artjak you have PMs - hope you can access them
Dove, thank you have just replied
Philippa, the email I just sent has not been delivered; they are saying ; byinternet, unreachable for too long. Which is odd as it is btinternet.
Will now be unavailable on line for a few days; have a great weekend.
Lazy summer Sunday bump
Monday evening bump; am back from London, have watered all the stuff for Somerset, golly it has been a hot few days!
Yes, I second that, have overdone it in the garden while it's been hot and dry but my shoulder hurts tonight. We have just had some rain though, although not enough yet so hope it rains overnight.
Enjoyed looking at the Chelsea programme tonight - think Cleve West will win Best in Show.
I'm looking forward to a rest/day off tomorrow in a record office!
Tuesday bump, hope it rains soon
Tuesday eve bump; no rain yet - sooo looking forward to going down to Somerset this w/end Even Flossie Flo, who spent last weekend at Wagging Tails, her Spa Hotel and had a shampoo an set and manicure, is excited about spending next weekend there as she gets to socialise with other dogs without having to be my bodyguard. Of course this am, when we went for a walk she rolled in UNBELIEVABLE s...t and had to be showered on our return.
Bump for Flossie Flo
