Does anyone talk to their plants?

Verdun!!! How do you do it?

I just think it is so wonderful that all my plants speak/understand English. How on earth do gardeners abroad manage?

FG, I do the same; 'you're not paying rent here, shape up or ship out!'

gardenjeannie, just read your lovely post from yesterday. I was feeling quite low with a vile cold that is keeping me awake every night and you really cheered me up.

I have about 40 aubergines potted up and also peppers; ok they may not be any use this year, but I can sell 'em to raise funds
