Are you wanting quotes  for photographers etc separately

Is this any good?


It pleases me to take amateur photographs of my garden and it pleases my garden that my camera makes my garden   professional!

I bought my plants from  Will McLewin ,found him a long time ago in the gardeners world magazine.

I read about him going all over the world collecting plants and seed for the university studies.he then sells off his spare plants  , and seeds.I wanted something that was an original and not plants that were cultivated 

I have some beautiful double flowers in an array of shades..l have also visited him at his garden , chosen my own plants and he has dug them up from his own stock.let him know what you want to spend and he will work with isn't how everybody likes to build up  a collection but it suits me.

Pm me if you need details.

Get well soon Nigel!

Yes I know what you mean ,you sort of get used to him being part of Gardeners World .It is worst for animals all they know is that it hurts. Here's hoping we shall see him back soon.

I keyed in free gardening quotes and sayings, some lovely images came  up which I'm sure you get inspiration from.

These are just a few::::::

If you want to be happy for a lifetime , plant a garden..

Gardeners know all the dirt!.

IF you would have a mind of peace, A. heart that cannot harden, go Find a door that opens wide upon a lovely garden.

There are no gardening mistakes , only experiments.

Earth laughs in flowers

A gardener learns more in mistakes than I successes.

Gardening is a matter of enthusiasm, holding up until your back gets used to it!

No life is without difficulties, no garden is without weeds

Gardeners are artists  ,their brush a tiny seed,     an ever-changing picture emerges from their deed .... 

To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.

If you have time to read this ,then you have time to weed.

You can grow flowers or you can grow weeds!  Your mind is the garden ...your thoughts are the seeds,you can grow flowers or you can grow weeds

Gardening is very simple just have to think like a plant...

The love of gardening is a seed once sown that never dies.

The best place to seek God is a garden, you can dig for him there






GArdening is cheaper than therapy ............ and you get tomatoes

Wish list for seed and plant swap

Hi poppy I'm sure that it's a weakness all us mad gardeners share !  

On a similar note:::::

 On a day off this week, went to a wild life park ,I took some photos of the animals .....but what attracted me just as much were the phormiums set out in the beds.too photos and drooled how I could do the same back in our garden, phormiums being my latest thing  along with ornamental grasses.

There was some tall white and cream grass I'm trying to find out what it is and a smaller grass cream with a thin striped green edge  which I'm after too !

Or rather on the cadge for some seed.....
