T&M freebies (postage to pay offer)

The only one's I've ordered so far were the perennials - tiny little plugs which all appeared healthy on arrival.  

They had to wait 24 hours until I planted on into modules and they're now in the coldframe growing on very nicely.  

I've lost 2 delphiniums, two echinacea and 3 penstemons, which I think is acceptable given the outlay - they were very tiny plugs.

Just loved those grasses last night, and all that autumn colour - quite inspiring

Hurrah!!!  It's dawning a bright new day and all is well with the Gardener's World!!! 

It appears that we're going to have this gorgeous weather for a few more days yet, and I've got a three day weekend ahead of me - this morning I'll be popping down south to visit my parents - then home to shop, tidy the house etc and hopefully potter in the garden.  Tomorrow we've booked a pub lunch on the Broads then we're heading for The Old Vicarage at East Ruston - I've not been for years and I'm so looking forward to it - I'll be taking my notebook and some cash 

Good Evening FORKERS

What is this little plant?

I went to a state school, they tried to teach me latin, I can't conjugate a verb but I can remember the latin names of plants and animals because I know enough latin for them to make sense to me - as Fidget describes. 

Thank you to Tech team

Hello folks  Isn't this lovely  Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Do you know, I realised what was wrong but it was too late to put it right .... all that cake we've been putting on the Board - what it needed was some

Good morning folks!   It's Friday!!!  Let's hope the techies are able to solve the problem today, or otherwise we'll have to spend the weekend out there in the garden actually doing stuff instead of just talking about it 

Who's in charge of supplying the techies with  coffee and pastries this morning?

We were going to have a 'Team Lunch' on my last day at work, where everyone brings a dish in, but I've changed the plans.  

We're going to have hot dogs to eat (proper sausages, baps and fried onions done in the slow cooker) and also a Bring and Buy Cake Stall, 'cos it's going to be Children in Need week
