 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.

What more can we want?!

Take care all.

Hi there Tina,

 Thank you!  

 You are right, the Olive tree is very pretty.

I hope mine carries on the way it is doing, I am pleased with it, just don't want the other fruits to fall off!  I don't suppose I should have touched it, I was admiring it and 'piong' it fell ! : -(

I have put another, deeper pot under it now, as Bekkie suggested.

You did get a bargain at £10!   As I say, I can't remember what I payed, but, I do know it wouldn't have been over £10.  So, we both have grabbed ourselves a bargain!!

I dare say I will have to put mine outside eventually, when, I hope, it becomes too big to stay inside!.....Good to know yours survived without any problems.
