Anything on your Wish List?

Posted: 28/11/2014 at 10:23

I used to have Eucomis sparkling burgundy fidget - very pretty 

I don't have a wish list at the moment - but I'm sure I'll have one over winter once I start looking...

Canna: Over-wintering.

Make sure it's off the ground as well to help the drainage. I'm about to move mine round into a sheltered corner and will use two windows I got from a friend as a temporary shelter for it as we'll get a lot of winter rain. Like yours -  it's too big to bring indoors.

Morning all. Supposed to be quite decent weather today and weekend so I hope to get outside - or maybe I could join the throngs getting their Black Friday bargains at the supermarket.....not.  Adults fighting over TVs and thingummy jigs.... 

Hope chicky makes her plane in time 

Wrap up LilyP - plenty of hot drinks and cake are the best remedy 

Off for a quick look round. Have a good day whatever the weather

Edd - coat - NOW! 

We expect pix of the forthcoming baubles fidget  


I'm off too I think. Very weary this week - must be the weather. Enjoy the rest of the evening everyone. 

Christmas Door Garland/Wreath

I have a plain willow one which I bought many years ago, and I attach various 'bits' onto it. Rhododendron leaves and buds are good - especially sprayed gold. Any bits of holly, ivy etc are good - easy to attach - and I have cinammon sticks, red beads (berries) and pine cones which I wire on. Finish it off with wire edged ribbon for hanging on the front door.

Edd - brilliant bit of banter!  

Certainly a lot funnier than another thread at the moment - I'm trying to restrain myself from posting and giving the 'oxygen of publicity'...

Miserable, dreich day here yesterday - frost then fog and never got above 4 degrees all day. Today was a bit warmer - it reached the balmy heights of 7 when I came home. Hope it's warmer tomorrow so that I can get on with the last of the gravel  

Have a great time chicky - or have you already gone...

Glad you're a bit better fidget - happy belated birthday...hope you can celebrate properly when you all feel tip top 

I'm off to look round and then get dinner on. Youngest isn't well either - all the more for me

Thought I'd bump this up in case anyone feels they need a laugh 

What are you getting rid of...?

I expect your phormiums grow much quicker down there once they're divided Verd!  Wet, cold ground's the biggest issue here so I prefer them in pots mostly, although I have created good conditions for the Cream Delight in a raised bed.  I really just want an excuse for a trip to the that bad?

I'll lend them to you LP
