Help for flooded gardens

Posted: 12/03/2014 at 18:59

Am now on anti-biotics which I really dissaprove of for a cold, but chemist told me to see doctor, doctor /nurse person said; either anti-biotics or steroids...have we all gone mad??? It is just a nasty cold for heavens sake.

On another note, it is wonderful that all these seed packets have arrived. Rosie, can we see more pictures of the affected gardens, especially those that were bull-dosed for flood defences. I cannot imagine how awful that must be to have ones very much loved garden bull-dosed to save the surrounding houses

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?

I have had to remove 3 large bumble bees from conservatory, using the jam jar and cardboard technique. I do love them; they just don't seem feasible as flying machines

My builder came up with a brill idea when putting in a rotary drier at a clients house; a piece of scaffold pole, cut to size.

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

As to the music of Cliff Richards, I reckon those plants are topping themselves.

plant I.D. please

The neighbour wishes to get rid of it, has tried for years but it keeps coming back. Have just done some research and it is considered invasive in some areas.

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
