Transport needed for flooded gardens

Posted: 10/04/2014 at 13:29

Nut, just had a look and I'm wondering if you could get the plants to either Northampton, Luton or even Oxford; but that last one is 85 miles from you.

Rosie, do you know anyone who does trips in that direction, I seem to remember that you travel a bit?

Last year we had a map showing where people were located, anyone remember the name of that thread?

Nut, I will be going down to Somerset in mid May; I know you said that you could manage about 70 miles, so will look on the map to see how far that would take you, and we'll see if anyone can help there.

If all your plants were transferred to bags, just for the journey, they would not take up much space and at a push I could take them.

Lizzie, that is sooo true about housework; by the time I'm back in the house from the garden it is nearly dark, so don't notice the mess.

Spent 3 hours yesterday afternoon scouring out pots with disinfectant Never want to see another pot again!

Worm casts are supposed to be the MOST wonderful soil/growing medium?

Vygies/Ice Plant

Welcome Khakibos; the name ' iceplant ' applies to many different species as far as I can see, Vygie looks familiar to me and I would think it would work here in the UK if you are not too far North, but do not expect it to survive the winter.

About 35 years ago, I noticed an old chap in Goldhawk Road West London, come out of his front door with a scythe and cut his tiny lawn, I just stood there with my mouth open; I had never seen anyone use a scythe. He gave it a brilliant cut, cleaned the scythe and went back indoors.

This is how the rolling acres of the big estates kept the grasslands cut.
