Garden centre recommendations

I also buy from Parkers sales, I love them but let's not get started on the usual 10 pages about how bad they are, please.

You just said that to annoy me Lyn!


Though I have to say they have been very, very, very good for at least the last three years or so, I haven't ordered nor  received anything from them in that time!

Why has a thread disqppeared? Who decided?

Where I work, if some one has not verbally abused you within half an hour of starting work, you start to think everyone has fallen out with you!

This is not bullying this is banter about football or anything else for that matter!

But this  only applies to males not females!

Hope this is not censured for offending the little darlings!

Re bees,

There has been a lot of honey bees both in the allotment and garden this year, if fact even though it has been cold wet and windy they have been lots on the flowering ivy along my rear boundary fence!

Also one of the allotment holders has been selling honey at a local market as he says he has had a bumper crop this year!

Ps did not have as many butterflies this year though!

Re Pennine Petal!

Interestingly the majority of people don't complain, generally because they can't be bothered, because they don't think it's worth while or because they dobn't think they will get anywhere. I do complain, because I think it is imortant, but even I sometimes can't be bothered. There are some things we put up with, we have a zone of tolerance, others we stamp our feet about.

It is VERBOTEN for Verdun to read further!

When Anemone Wild Swan was first offered, I ordered six plant plugs from them (T&M) potted them up but they started dying off almost immediately one by one!

Couldn't be bothered complaining as in the past they had supplied me with rubbish plants and it had been very difficult to get a response!

I took the opinion as it served me jolly well right as I had sworn never to order anything from them ever again and here I had broken my promise!

A long time later I discovered the Review Centre and posted on there T&M to their credit responded right away, to say let them have the order number etc and they would see what they could do!

I could not find the details but also again I could not be bothered responding to them so that was the end of that saga!

So what you say PP is very true!


Wot's it all about.....?

Chancers and con merchants have to be total extremists to keep their state funding and it is always other peoples money they waste,and the more extreme their views the more certain people believe them and try to deny anyone else who differs from them, plus they always have a clever dick answer waiting!

Keep burning the peat!

Hi Lou,

If you can stand the publicity, get your local paper and TV station in on the act, there is nothing like bad publicity to put bullies off!

And the papers and TV stations love stories like this!


Best of luck!

WHAT!!! eating sugar, BIG FAT BORIS will have you in the Tower for that horrendous crime!

At least Dave boy doesn't favour a sugar tax,(about the only thing he does or would not tax).

Ps. As Tesco was supposed to stock the jam, my wife who likes sickly things was off like a flash but they had never heard of it!

She will have to eat our own home made strawberry jam (Florence strawberries) which is very sweet!

From 24 degrees on Sunday to the first snow today!

Hi Dacha,

Just had words with my granddad, he was a wee lad living in Belfast during the 2ndWW, where everyone drank strong boiled tea, with milk and two sugars when you could get the stuff!

Now everyone drinks what he calls Shamrock tea three leaves,poison!

He still boils his tea, strong with milk, BUT no sugar, now he cannot stand the stuff in tea!

Funny when something is scarce everyone wants it, when it is plentiful the opposite!

And been able to criticize  politicians  of all parties even though they are voted in by us is marvellous , a bunch of con artists he says!




Who still has bees?

Hi  jo47

Saw was the operative word, it was only there for a few seconds then shot over the fence into next doors garden, spoil sport!

I have had a few self seeders in the past couple of years, no success with what I think was saved seed from my plants!

None survived for very long and they were terrible colours, nothing like their parents, very washed out coloured leaves!

Are they worth the cost?
