Get it off your chest

Posted: 11/09/2013 at 13:11

Phew I finally made it to the end of all the comments on this thread! Like a lot of you I always have to start at the top and scroll my way through pages and pages of stuff to get to the end. In this case though I'm glad I did, just think of all the giggles and full on belly laughs I would have missed if I hadn't gone all the way through. Some of the funniest stories I've read in a long time so thank you all for those

I'd forgotten about it too David, thank you

calling all gardeners

Can't help I'm afraid CJB, I have a large garden with oodles of space and I'm a novice gardener but good luck with your tech project and I'm sure you'll get some really useful responses to your question

Seeds- your opinions and advice

Posted: 10/09/2013 at 14:38

Hi Amy,

Can't help with the organisation and filing of seed packets I'm afraid, I inherited a garden with a certain amount of established plants so I haven't had to plant from seed yet, I clicked on here as I was curious as to how people do store and organise their seeds but I wanted to say I'm sorry for your loss, you must be missing your mum terribly.

Gardening will certainly help to fill your days and give you something to channel your energy into. And its addictive. And some people are naturally good at it, if your mum was you probably will be too so you'll reap the rewards in no time. Hope you manage to get it all figured out and under way very soon. Love Heather

Lasagne bulb planting

I'm so "green" at some of this. I didn't realise you could literally layer plants up on top of one another. And I find I'm so unbelievably impressed by this (I know, I know I should get out more  ). What a super duper space saving idea that is. I'm gonna have to try that with one or two of my pots next year. *Still learning*

Rose recommendations - help please

I know a lot of people who've planted things in memory of their loved ones. And I don't think it matters if its a plant, or a bench, or whatever. If that's what comforts you and brings you a little bit of piece and the ability to smile when remembering, none of it can wrong can it. That's what I think anyway.

Autumn colour

Lovely pics Marion, for colour, Autumn is absolutely my favourite season, just heavenly. I could rave on for hours on end about the reds and the golds and the russetts and the oranges and the browns

Sorry to hear about your son Diddy, must have been very tough times for you all. But what a wonderful idea to grow something in his memory he must be the first thing you think about when you look at it and I should think it must be comforting and lift you up when you see that beautiful bloom of roses.
