Could it be Pocket Plum disease?

........  Perhaps that is just how the worman looks/speaks. Some people are just rude in general.

Yes, some people don't have a ready smile, just like some people on forums (I always want to say fora) don't or won't use emoticons to indicate the tone of voice, then their posts can 'sound' snappy and unkind. 

So often on a forum it's not what you say, it's the way that you say it.

Persistent Weed

It's one of the few things I use glyphosate on - a few squirts early in the season when it appears in the veg patch - it's keeping it under control.

Maybe someone had complained about the price earlier and left them at the counter and she'd had to get them returned to where they came from .............. but still totally unacceptable behaviour, and not good business practice on the GC's behalf anyway - if she'd made any comment at all it should have been to remark on what good value they were!

I think I'd let the management know that some Customer Service training is required before they start losing customers

Short flowering season for my buddleja's

Posted: 26/08/2015 at 06:30

Mine  (Miss Ruby) has been flowering for a good while now and is doing well with regular deadheading - it's also had the benefit of clematis food being applied to that area of the garden earlier in the summer, and a couple of doses of tomato feed being watered on nearby lupins etc.

Just had a phone call from my Welsh cousin M - his brother T (the one from Tasmania that was in the bush fire with their grandchildren) is over in the UK and staying with their Mum in South Wales so M and his wife have a week off ....... they're doing a quick tour of the rellies in their campervan and will be in Norwich tomorrow - I'm at a funeral in Suffolk most of the day but hopefully should be back mid-afternoon so they're going to arrive here around tea time and we'll go to the local pub for supper - they'll park the campervan on our drive and sleep there the night (we've offered them the spare room but they insist they'll be fine).

It'll be lovely to see them.

Cousin's wife is a professional gardener ....... it's too late to do any weeding now
