New allotment OMG...

Posted: 16/12/2014 at 19:25


Have you tried the smaller versions of the cheap green house? What I mean is not so long as yours?

I know people have and they all say that they must be tied down to last but are the smaller ones any good (are they worth the money, even for a couple of years as a cold frame? ) 

I have clients (older) who, when i say things need overwintering. They just say "that will cost more", and I have to agree and then say, yes" would you like a garden like last year" 

That's when i cave in and say its ok, I'll look after them!

 I don't have the space any more and as a contract gardener Its costing me more to help them, than  what i get paid. (so pleased i love it)

New client/ contracts help but my council tax goes up by 2% ( again) this year and a new kid on the way. What i need (and should not need) Is a Living wage and not to ask my friends and clients to fork out more! I find it embarrassing to older clients.  There is no need.

I have just upset myself now.

We have a Labour council. Blue!!!! edd has just slated  SPORTS DIRECT for taking on Zero hour contracts (that is what my new contract is) While the labour council has over 400 Zero contracts working for them in the town hall.  Hypocrites!!!!!!!


Sorry for out burst.

IDS says have less kids!!!! who will be left to pay or his underpants and breakfasts on our expence!!!!!!!!!!!!


Apologies again we should not mention this and just be little Sheeple.

Forgive me please as i have just realised. If it is a paperbark maple, then it will not have leaf NOW! Sorry.

What it might have is new buds and that will help a lot, if possible 

Two ID's please

That serrated edge gets me Nut but it could be a different plant.

I will stick with my last message.

EDIT: think your right

Need a leaf shape for pic 2 please.

Could be a paperbark maple or many other trees. Bit more info required.

Pic One could be Large-leaf Aster, Eurybia macrophylla?

I think you are right Bamboogie. If the stem was pink it would be 100%

It could be a wild artichoke that has bolted or more likely a tall Succulent.
