Early mistakes and successes

Good thread Flowerlover, I like hearing about people's gardening experiences.

In 2012 I started a thread about how people started gardening. Here it is, if you are interested.  http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/why-did-you-all-start-gardening/69612.html 

Early mistakes and successes

Pansyface, we did exactly the same thing with the same result when we moved to this house! 1992 we were laying out the garden.

Morning all.

Ginger, I live in SW France and in summer it's often over 30° - I don't like it! It can be colder here in winter than in England. I love England.

That link worked, Dove. What a terrifying experience.

I'm going to make marmalade today and perhaps sew a couple of cushions with left over curtain material.

HELLO FORKERS!

I had two Wild Swans, one from England, present from a friend and one from France. They both died, don't know why, unless it's the heat here in summer.

Have just found where everyone has been recently - Verdun's Which subjects thread! Missed it as too busy sorting out cottage and making curtains.

Wonky, it didn't and it wasn't  Garage on Wednesday.

Perhaps RB has the lurgy. I'm still coughing and blowing nose, 18th day.

Dove's link didn't work for me either, said the page was missing.

I watched the MS programme too. Amazing, really hope it's a breakthrough. Worked with MS patients when I was nursing.

Car didn't take the MOT. Needs 2 new tyres and a ball joint. New appointment for Wednesday.

Couldn't find roofing felt for OH's shed. Searched 2 DIY places and 1 builders merchants.

Have bought Seville oranges to make marmalade.

Tippng with rain and cold.

Morning all. It was trying to snow this morning. Stopped now. Car going for MOT and I'm going to the fabric shop to get blackout curtain lining for bedroom curtains and uncovered cushions for the sitting room. I'll cover them with the left over curtain fabric.

Also need roofing felt for OH's shed. A plank of wood and some roofing felt blew off in the gales last week.

Proposal on the local gardening show!
