My neighbours dont want me to use my land to grow a garden

Posted: 15/05/2015 at 09:34


I am really sorry to hear of your plight Shirley!!    People always try to stop the good going on...don't ask me why there are so many horrible folk around, but, there are!!   You have had some great suggestions on here from people who really care about the world...and each other!    I too would say, " Don't give up" !  Do you have anyone who could give you a helping hand with your garden?   I love to be in my garden, I know how nasty people can be though, my next door neighbour is having huge problems with her neighbour the other side, and this other neighbour is trying to get me involved...NO WAY!  Nothing to do with me I say....

 There are bullies a-plenty, you just keep at it girl, let no-one stop you, you have paid money out and you have every right to do what you want to do with YOUR LAND.   Lots of us here are thinking of you Shirley, all we all want is a peaceful life and a beautiful site to look out onto and sit beside, where no-one or nothing can spoil it.   I'm sure if some of us were nearer, we'd help you out!!! 

 Lots of love to you.

 Keep at it, your perseverance ( I can't spell that! ) will win in the end!!  XXX

Fig tree

Posted: 15/05/2015 at 09:15


My fig tree fruited beautifully last year, now it looks dead!  It was kept in the conservatory, in a big enough pot...I neglected it somewhat I'm sorry to say

 Is there anyone out there who knows how to 'give it life again' please?!!

  I would like to plant it outside eventually,  I could do with knowing the right spot to plant it in too please....

Many thanks.

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.
