Yippee - just noticed that our Forum pictures are back.
They have probably been back for ages and I have just woken up from a deep sleep.
Forest of Dean Mike.
This is cheating as it's not my garden but I took this photo on Tuesday walking in the Forest and it looks so typically November with the low sunshine.
Thank you Cangrandmafixit for the purple podded bean seeds - will PM you later.
Yes Philippa, I have already earmarked that leaf and plan to do some propagation in the spring. Do the flowers just die back and then all you have is leaf for a while?
Why do you want to get rid of them as they look gorgeous.
I bought a streptocarpus (I always think this sounds like a throat infection) cape primrose last month and it has been flowering beautifully. I notice that there are no more buds forming so am guessing that it has a rest period coming up. Is there anyone who has one of these and can advise me about its life cycle.
How about getting a job in a garden centre first just to get the feel of it - part time on a Saturday perhaps if you already have a full time job.. One of our forum members posted recently that they had just got a job (managerial in think) in a garden centre and it was his 'dream job' as he loved gardening so much.
Congratulations on getting such a lovely job Dannyboy. I wish you all the best. I am sure your enthusiasm will filter through to the rest of your colleagues and on to your customers.
What is the connection of your forum name Verdun? I have noticed with the WW1 interest at the moment there was a big battle at Verdun. Tick me off if I am being too nosy
