Gardening challenges for 2015

Hi, Woodgreen....no, I haven't even given a thought to suppliers yet, but thanks anyway.

I've had this unfulfilled ambition to grow those huge incurve chysanths to show bench standards since I was a little un....in fact, when I left school the headmaster gave me a chrysanthemum growing book as a leaving present.

Years ago, 'Woolmans' were probably the top specialist and I'm pleased to see that they are still around today.

HELLO FORKERS!

No going out on the raz here Pdoc, few drinks something nice to eat and up bright and early, unlike years ago when I was dead until noon     on the 2nd 

 

First sweet pea should arrive just after midnight then!

Skin cancer and survival .please I need your true information , experience on this subject ..I know I have not worded it right . I can't find the words.hope you know what I'm asking .

Skin cancer comes in many forms. I have had personal experience of one type over the past year, which I would relate via a PM, but not publically.

Pleased to say that I'm now fit & well thanks to the efforts of a unbelievably skilful surgeon to whom I am deeply indebted.   

PS.I claim no knowledge of the subject, other than the aforementioned.

Anyone planning anything  specific?

In the past I've specialised in growing roses & sweet peas,.......this year I'm going to attempt to grow those gorgeous incurve chrysanths. I know the basics and I know it will be a faff, but looking forward to the challenge.

Wow....what lovely shots everyone.

Love your frozen snow, KEF and your sky is reminiscent of a nuclear explosion, Lesley.

 I know what you mean about liking your neighbour, Philippa. I have an old lady of a similar age living by me......she also has a couple of large trees growing along our mutual boundary.

We have a very amicable arrangement, I keep the trees cut back to safe proportions and she makes the most delicious apple pies I've ever tasted for me.

I would of course do it without the apple pies, but it makes her feel that she has contributed.
