Well its that time again when we look forward to the new year and what we say we are going to do, although in my case at least its more wishful thinking rather than anything I am actually going to achieve.

So what are your wishes and resolutions for your garden, or anything else for that matter.

Having seriously lost control  over the last season and a bit (Open for ngs to wilderness in less than two years), my resolution is to bring it back in line.

or at least a bit

31/12/2013 at 11:57

Controlled wilderness is such a difficult look to achieve in my case anyway. It tends to look as though I have given up rather than getting that naturalistic look, that when done well is beautiful.

Good luck Nut.

To only grow about 5 times as many plants from seed as I can find room for instead of 10 times as many!

To be more tactful amd diplomatic both on the forum and In life

Thanks punkdoc. ' The gardener has died' was this year's style

Good one Bob. That's me as well

Good one Verdun, maybe I should join you. Saying that I don't think there is anything wrong with your forum posts. Maybe I should engage my brain before I type.

I must learn not to pot on ( and re-pot) everything that germinates and if I can't give plants away, compost them without crying. Last year nearly 50 tomato plants and only needed 28, ended up begging neighbours to have extra.

31/12/2013 at 13:27

Oh Verdun, please don't become all tactful and polite and please keep your awful jokes coming

31/12/2013 at 13:58

Totally agree artjak. 

Verdun without the awful jokes would make a bad 2014

31/12/2013 at 15:57

As its going to be the yr with a special birthday my wishes are endless. My gardening resolution is to read and follow instructions on the seed pkt/ pots as they are there for a reason and not to be ignored. Convince my husband that a greenhouse is a need rather than a want.

31/12/2013 at 17:46

Weyplotter; I agree, gardening with a greenhouse is so much more economical.

A very happy new year to everyone, may all your seeds (and dreams) germinate

31/12/2013 at 18:32

Hey....my jokes awful?  I don't think so 

31/12/2013 at 18:44

I'm sure they're funny when they leave you Verdun. I don't know what happens to them later

31/12/2013 at 19:15

Its the way you tell 'em Verdun 

I'm hoping to be lucky with some strawberry plants next year and grow a few more varieties of veg.

I'm also hoping my OH builds me a pergola

Happy new year everyone x

So many wishes and resolutions here .....  at what stage does a resolution lose it's resolve and become a wish?

31/12/2013 at 19:47

My New Year resolution is - not to make any...

it's an easy one to keep 

Wishes...now that's a whole different ball game....where on earth would I start?

Heh heh! Perfect answer, nut!

A New Year’s resolution is something that goes in one Year and out the other.
