Free plants

Posted: 01/12/2012 at 10:56

I don't think you can expect people to just send you free plants as some one wil have to pay for the postage. I have had  a couple of lovely buddliea cuttings sent to me from a poster on here which are now in the garden I paid the postage by cheque but paypal could be an option as well. I guess it all depends how honest and reliable people are about this.

Morning everyone,

Tried to have a bit of catch up on here Hard frost here last night, but still got snap dragons in flower.

Just seen the competition so have entered, but don't ever win anything.

I do seem to accquire a lot of paperbacks, a while ago I used this site and got about £100 for my old books

http://www.greenmetropolis.com/

All books are £3.75 including delivery and you can sell your books on there for £3 each. They do support the woodland trust also.

Went with my heart earlier this week and now have 2 ginger kittens running around the place OH have to rescue one this morning as he went head first into a flower vase

I've called them Tips & Ali- Can anyone work out what they are named after?

 I've  also got 2 episodes of The Killing to watch before  the next 2 tonight, looking forward to the dancing as well

Generally housework/tidying to do

Managed a piece of marmite on toast but sticking to the day in bed routine

Sounds like a good find Lottie, especially as the pots came with plants as well

I love tips and skips,can't go past one without have a nosey.  I accuired some old garden tools and several weathered pots a couple of weeks ago. Not sure what all the tools are for, one begins with a letter M I want to say matchet but that's not quite right and the other has a round shape at the bottom- which some one said was for onions?May not even use them but I couldn't leave them there

only problem I have is that I wish I had a bigger car or a van

saw the stones about 20 years ago at the time i thought that was going to be the last tour

not even started on the whole christmas thing

Well done on your project looks really good. My grandad has something similar in his garden, it was packed with grape hyacinths

Ive got an Echinacea that's still valiantly trying to flower, bit late or way too early? as i was expecting to see it's first flowers next year. Snap dragons and rudebekias still going although I think there will be a frost this week. I've got a few spring bulbs sprouting, roll on springtime
