Never buying anything off this website again

If the price is normally "too good to be true" don't expect full blooms of fantastical flowers at the size you'd expect to buy from a local market. If they were that good a quality why would they be giving them away so cheaply?

But they ought certainly still be alive - even in need of TLC. Plenty of people have given you email addresses to contact.

I've just brought the 48 lavenders for postage costs only. I fully expect the plants to be very small and in need of potting on and protecting over winter before going out on display next year. I expect this because they are so cheap, I did my research, came on the forum and read of previous people's experiences buying these "bargains". As with most things in life you get what you pay for.

Chris. We have that problem - but there are plenty of bird feeders out there that have wire cages around them so only the small birds can get into feed - they work a treat. (An upturned wire hanging basket works wonders for pigeons on the feeding table!)

Now. Do I block the works car park exit up so all the jittery chaps can't get off to watch some football match?

Tuesday is fine. I can cope with Tuesday. And it looks like my cunning plan of making it rain by watering everything yesterday, loudly mentioning having a BBQ, and leaving all my car windows open at work is going to succeed.

Wednesday is a bit of a meh day. Its like you know the weekend is getting closer but someone insisted on dragging it out a bit and making you wait. I could do without Wednesday. Perhaps we could merge it into Saturday? A kind of Satnesday that lets you get all the housew**k done and still have energy to enjoy the weekend.

Thursday. Well that one might be a bit more interesting I guess. I mean I get to play with shiny things such as the steam pump at the museum if nothing else.


But its just not Saturday.
