The more I learn about gardening, the more I wish I had a bigger garden. Since that isn't going to happen, the plant on my wish list would be a tiny russet apple tree; I don't have room for any more large fruit trees.
What would everyone else like?
Raised bed to extend my veggie growing and a lilac wheelbarrow please Santa
I would like a bigger garden with paddock and romantic looking cottage wit h roses round the door.
Some green fingers please.
A tool belt to put my trowel and seceteurs in, I just put them down and forget where.
Someone to help me line the one I've just bought the bubble wrap for.
Am I greedy?
Tinker fp, I love the idea of a lilac wheelbarrow!
Lyn, I have a proper gardeners apron with heavy duty pockets, by the end of a gardening day the pockets are full of earth, empty seed packets old bits of wire etc. I then have to go looking for all the tools.
My dream is a duck pond with live ducks on it. My garden is only big enough for a small pond, though we did have a visiting Mallard and he just loved our little pond and stayed for a day.
Don't give up Daydaisy, we have a small pond and Mr & Mrs Mallard have come back every year for the past 3 years, they love the remains of the bird food and last year we bought some duck food from our local pet shop, Mr Mallard is my pic
Someone to help me move and repair my garden shed would be lovely thank you santa
Artjak - there is method in the lilac one- when the men of the street are after wheelbarrows for heavy stuff - well lilac
My Daughters to bring their Christmas present plants to me before they are on life support machines discussing whether to switch it off or not."Oh" take it to dad he will have it back in no time, then it is the major operation, the touch and go period followed by convalescence and handed back glowing only for them to be back on their last legs a month later.Please give them something they cannot kill Santa?
Hey Frank, they then say 'what have you done to it!!'!!
Less rain and more sunshine!
Holly Berry, I live in the Fens which are as flat as you can get. 2 winters ago I was on the phone to a friend in London talking about the snow melting. 'We've still got snow on the high ground,' I said; then realised I was looking at the rock garden all of 1 metre above the rest of the garden! I do sometimes yearn for at least a bit of a hill.
Ho Artjak plenty of hill to look at here - Malvern Hills
Warmer weather and for it not to rain so muchSummer house (to sit out in summer and for my tropical plants in winter)Some tall BambooEveryone to have a happy Christmas
An enormous greenhouse and somewhere to put it
