Not too early is it? 

 

 

Your eight 'Desert Island Discs' plants

Posted: 30/11/2015 at 10:40

Like the Desert Island Discs programme - but with plants

Which eight plants would you choose for your Paradise Island - all things being equal - take it as read that you have perfect growing conditions - and they don't have to be practical edible plants either, unless you want them to be.

And as with the radio programme, you can choose one book to take with you too...

 

Anybody feeling chatty?

As I said "chatty thread"!!!
Was not comparing the thread YOU started to Twitter etc as I am not involved with those.
Sorry to have ruffled your feathers Dove but it was not meant like that,at all.

Feathers not at all ruffled Snow    Just thought I'd explain the 'history' and how it came to happen that I was asked to start the Hello Forkers thread  

 

On some forums people do seem to get competitive about how many posts they get on 'their' threads, and we once had someone here who got a bit snarky about the number of replies on Hello Forkers compared to 'his' threads - so that's why I wanted to explain that it's not my thread - I'm just the 'fall guy'

Hello Mrs MacGregor

Whereabouts are you?  I know new growth on buckthorn can be a little tender so really I wouldn't be wanting new growth yet if there's any danger of frost - but I know what you mean about being impatient.  Hopefully you'll see life in the spring

Ideas for a walled garden

Which way does it face and how high are the walls - the amount of sunlight available for plants will depend on this.

Just to make it clear - Hello Forkers is not My thread - ages ago a group of us decided that a new Chat Thread would be a good idea as previous ones had got in a muddle - there were too many of them, you couldn't join in with them all and it meant that some people were getting left out/ignored accidentally. We thought that one chat thread for everyone was a good idea.   

Verdun suggested that I should start a new one off so I did, but I started it for everyone.

That way it's much easier to find someone to chat to and follow who's doing what or to drop in and out as the mood takes you.  You don't have to keep up with all the goings on if you don't want to

This forum isn't like Twitter or other such  things - Individual members don't have 'followers' - it's much friendlier than that

Good morning all  G'day Pay  and Welcome to Laura

((hugs)) to Clari, and good wishes to Panda for a safe journey to Scotland and hope the funeral goes as well as these things can ((hugs))

The rest of you had better help yourselves to ((hugs)) and  as appropriate or I'll get confused popping backwards to the previous page  

Still dark out there, and sounds wet but the wind's dropped a bit
