Oh not again why can't everyone just be nice to each other Can we not act like adults and rise above all this unpleasantness. Treat each other like we would like to be treated. I've only been on here a couple of months, it was so friendly and helpful at first
Thank you, dolgarrog. How far did you get?'
Hello everyone, I've probably not helped matters but there we go. It's still raining, going to cook tea now. Have a good evening
Bob, yes Woottens is excellent. Had great hellebores from them too. ,always perfectly packed large quality plants.
Lily.....it will be fine.
Woottens have a half price sale on at the mo
Oooooooo! Thanks fidget. Dont tell anyone else tho.
Are Woottens good quality? Do need some hellebores this new season
Try ashwood nurseries for hellebores.special open day in February. We could have a meet up.
Hope so Verdun, I really enjoy the helpful tips. And ideas from everyone
Johns Garden open 8th Feb 2014.
Woottens are superb - I was fortunate enough to live very close by for quite a few years
Provided the winter isn't very bad the February one should be full of interest
Not too far from me either
Evening all. I'm at my daughter's near Poitiers and her OH has managed to find the WiFi number. First thread I've looked at so don't know what's been going on elsewhere, but all my favourite people seem to be here, so it seems OK. Glad you haven't gone Punk doc. Don't you dare think of going Verdun. I do another forum too, but they are both different so I'll carry on with both.
We had chicken curry and apple tart for lunch with the children so had a salady selection of things from the fridge with fish fingers for tea. Children now bathed, in bed and asleep, hopefully.
Evening all. Very wet again here today. Just taken on a second allotment plot, but weather is holding me back from clearing it and getting it tidy. Not cold, but where is the sun? Anyone seen it?
Off to eat home-made raspberry and apple crumble. Yum yum
We have flood warnings here for the next couple of days
Oh no. Hope it doesn't affect you too much. Our local river does flood, but usually onto large flood plain so no worries immediately to my house. I really feel for those who've had flooding it must be devastating.
Floods!? After the dry summer we've just had? What's wrong with the ditches and drains nowadays?
Sorry, that was rhetorical - we know what's wrong with them - many ditches aren't maintained properly or have been filled in, and the drains are inadequate.
Matty, yes woottens really are,top notch. ,I buy from Ashwoods too for hellebores but woottens are excellent for those too. I had a yellow variety last year...ordered it few months before for,sprimg delivery. It came in a 5 litre instead of 3 litre because plant I wanted was unavailable in the smaller size. Same price, just huge and wonderful flowers. They tell you day before when it's coming. No GC will sell that quality.
Allotment Max, send that crumble my way!
Busy, not going anywhere ...like it here
Verdun - have sent you some crumble by esp! Lovely all my own produce. Have loads of apples and just thinking what else I can make?
Just found a recipe for apple and banana muffins! Might try them tomorrow.
The floods don't affect us, thank goodness, but they do affect our ability to go anywhere. Most of water goes onto the flood plain, and we even have ditches down side of hedges by our street that take water to a huge soak away - and in this area are lots of 'dew ponds' I think they are called that collect surplus water.
Always think when I see them that the oldens really knew a thing or 2 about flood controll
Aple and raspberry crumble sounds really tasty
