That's worrying, Marion is so regular with her posts. I wonder if the editor of this forum knows how to contact her or if she has friends in the Bristol Botanical Garden of the Alpine Society.

Houses with lots of land

https://www.onthemarket.com/for-sale/smallholding/uk/  I couldn't get that to work so try this.

Some of them are gorgeous, but most are in Wales, none on the English south coast.

Most of the people in the gardening club are English, it's on the border Charente/Dordogne, lots of English living there.

Morning all. Rained in the night.

I'm giving a talk about making an English garden in France in May to a gardening club. I had a horrid dream that I'd brought the photos for the power point but I'd left all my notes at home.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Garden is sodden. Have spent most of the afternoon in the GH. Shuffling plants, potting on others, sowing runner beans, courgettes, cucumbers, more petunias (too late?), ditto Didiscus, French marigolds, Hesperis, Cerinthe. GH is full.

I never came to any harm pruning laurel.

Houses with lots of land

I have a lot of land but I live in SW France, 64 acres, but most of that is scrubby woodland. Bought the house in a run down state, uninhabited for 6 years, for £140,00 in 1985. Did a lot of work on it and I made the garden. But I didn't want to live in France! My first, late, husband's idea.

Houses and land in France are still a lot cheaper than in England. My daughter is buying a house with 5 bedrooms and over an acre in SW France for about £170,000. But the agent and the notaire (solicitor) are quite expensive.

But I don't suppose that is much help if you want to be in England.

I see that Verdun has posted the news about Lyn's father on a separate thread. Her father couldn't have hoped for a better daughter to care for him until he left. Hugs for Lyn.
