You are brilliant dizzylizzy!!

I wouldn't know where to start putting a photo on here let alone a video!!

I will certainly have a look, thank you very much.

Don't suppose you have any suggestions as to where I might put a Fig tree in my garden do you??    I bought it at the same time as the Olive tree, it is outside at the moment, such beautiful weather for now isn't it?  It loves it out there!  I am keeping it watered of course,  but, I think I should probably plant it out now, but, where?  I have quite a large garden, lots of it is under trees, which I love, although, there isn't anywhere I could put the Fig tree, anyway, not enough sunshine, too many roots.    I have a spot which I think might be good, it's next to the garage down the bottom of the garden, I used to have a pond there, it gets plenty of  sunshine in the afternoon / evening, I wonder if that space would be good for it?  Sorry to go on!  I do that!!   Just wondered if you had any advice for me, you seem very knowledgeable....Have I done enough creeping yet?!!!  
Thanks again for the video, I'm going to look right now!

Talk soon, no doubt...

Love to you.

 You are exactly right!  I'm 63  and I'm still learning, we would never have thought that we would be learning from children and grandchildren!!

Keeps us going anyway.

Oh WOW!!  Many thanks for this dizzylizzy!!

What a fantastic photo, I love Olive tree is much the same, it is doing very well now,  although the flowers have all gone, and what I thought were Olives weren't!!!  I think they must just have been new flowers!!  Oh dear, I have a lot to learn!  I  still am looking for Olives though!   If I am fortunate enough to get any I will shout it from the rooftops!   and post it on here!  Watch this space.

You seem to have the knack ( if that's how you spell it?! ) with your Olive tree dizzylizzy!   You have brought yours up beautifully. 

I will check out the link from Dove and the others too, thanks very much. 

Take care and best wishes to you.

Hello Kelcow,

Your little bit of heaven looks so beautiful !!

 You are doing a great jjob, you must have been born with green fingers?! 

Isn't it funny? You have got rid of Bamboo, and  am looking for more of it?!

My Brother in law gave me  some a few months ago and it's growing great, I have quite a lot of damp, shady area's in my garden, plus lots of tree roots, so, I can't dig very deep at all, the Bamboo seems to fit the bill perfectly!  also it will, eventually give a good privacy screen!!

Anywy, just really wanted to say, you aare doing a great job!

I hope it keeps growi g nicely for you and you get much pleasure from it, when you can find time to relax!

Bye bye.
