Lovely David 


Thanks, FG.....the slideshow would have had about a dozen or so likewise.....will try another day.

Geoff was on another level for me. I can honestly say that walking around Barnsdale one could almost sense the great man's presence...the birds are finger tame.

Beautiful place!

Thanks, KEF.....tad irritating.

Not sure what month, Fidget, but it was a hot day, so I would guess June/July.

This shot from the same file indicates how sunny it was.

Here here Verdun - he was my inspiration too and I often re-read the books I have that he wrote on gardening.  Is Barnsdale open to the public?

Yes, it is open to the public, Forester....that's when I took that pic.

I would offer to post a slideshow of my visit, but as I've posted it before, I'm cautious not to bore peeps.

Whilst being relieved that Brumbull has finally been zapped, I think we should remain vigilant. It's all too simple to slip back again with a new identity...I've seen it many times in the past.

One thing they find difficult to change is their posting style i.e. composition, punctuation & grammar...after numerous bans, this let Grid Gardener down every time.

I reckon some of us  could have BB sussed after his first sentence.

A monument to the sainted Geoff Hamilton in his beloved Barnsdale garden.

Hi, Mags....*Growmore is a general balanced fertilizer and is intended to address all three nutriment requirements of the soil. It has a NPK rating of 7-7-7, translated means 7 equal parts of Nitrogen (leaf growth) phosphates (root growth) and potash (fruit & flowers) application is usually in soil preparation for a new planting/sowing.  

*Growmore (then known as National Growmore) was introduced by the government during WW2 as part of the nation's 'Dig for Victory' campaign.  

I do use it sometimes, but prefer it in the liquid form these days.
