Does anyone talk to their plants?

Posted: 12/03/2014 at 19:05

I talk to my plants, say good morning and good night to them and tell them how good they looking, I know, I'm weird but they seem to respond well. 

Verdun, what are you like!!

Lidl

Bought three lovely Geraniums from Lidl this morning, they are really strong sturdy plants. I have potted them into terracotta pots and they look lovely, l have put them in the greenhouse for now. Hope you are able to get the things you want Duncan, that's really pants that you are working so late.

Please keep this thread going, your writings about your garden Marion is lovely, always so interesting. Your garden is just beautiful and full of colour already. If you ever write a book about your gardening, I would love to buy a copy.

Sowing mad!

I started my tomatoes off at the begging of February and they are all growing really well. I have got a heated greenhouse and heated propagators to help them along. I've also got Marigolds, Lobelia, Cosmos, Aster, Brussels Sprout, Lettuce all growing well. It doesn't matter how big the greenhouse, it is never big enough

I have used their compost and I didn't like very much, but their seeds are brilliant, I have had any fail at all. I will be going to Lidl on Thursday, they have got some lovely Geraniums on offer. I've had their plants before and they are very good.

Where have the birds gone!!!

I think I may have all the starlings, I have lots of them coming into the garden. The Blackbirds always seem to be very greedy,  but they all have to fight so hard to survive.

Good job you don't live near me donutsmrs, my youngest son has just been practising his drums for half an hour.  I do limit the time though and he is a good drummer, it isn't just aimless banging  One of our neighbours actually asked who it was and couldn't believe it was my 12 year old, he thought it was someone in a band!!!

I could live with that Tracey-Newbie as like you say its only an half hour or so. Hope he makes a career out it then he can keep you in the style you would like to become accustomed too. 

Music in the Garden

Posted: 23/02/2014 at 14:01

I just like to listen to the birds and I love to watch them feeding when I am in my potting shed. What really annoys me is being forced to listen to other peoples music that they have blasting out of their houses. If they need to listen to music with the volume up full then why can't they close their windows. Hope I don't sound too grumpy.
