Gardener's sayings.

Just a light hearted thread, what have you been told over the years that stuck in your mind or made you smile?

My Dad told the story about a vicar leaning over the garden fence and saying what a wonderful job God & man did in a garden. The old chap replied Tha should have seen it when God looked after it his sen ! ( self for non Yorks folk.) Always makes me smile.

KEF,just go into B & Q with proof of age and fill in form,they will give you a card immediately,there is also a fairly new scheme for over 60,s at B & Q seperate to the Weds card,whee they Issue you with a paper membership and you can use this other than Weds,it does,nt always give a discount but they E-Mail each week with special deals such as 20% off plants 30% of decking for 2-3 days during that week,You also go into a draw each time that paper membership voucher is used.

We saved 20% on paint a few weeks ago.

Hope this is useful.

MMP loved the parrot story.  Cals after 6pm my friend says I'm eating my evening meal give me your home number and I'll ring you later when you're eating. They usually hang up. Mum  ( after grooming by us) says "sorry she's not in I'm the maid"..LOL they usually go away.

You only get vivid red on new leaves, they mature and go lime green, that's why it's so valued in the spring, don't worry look forward to next spring.

In the past when special offers on at local "beer shop", we've bought 24 cans in cardboard bottom, tough plastic covered packs, taken cans out carefully & what remained was a mini cloche for greenhouse, friends have donated, fine if you don't mind neighbours seeing lots of empty Stella packs in GH.

Tomato problems

Depending on which leaves are curling, if new ones and they look healthy colour I was always told it wasn't a bad sign, in fact good sign..but maybe old wives tale ?? Mine never came to any harm after a bit of curl. Sure someone on forum will know.

Morning all.

Supermarket for me, such joy.

The B&Q 10% for over 60's do you have to apply in store for a card or what? Other half is 60..so that means fun Wednesdays for us.

cucumbers

I'd say that cold finished cumbers in greenhouse as well. The temperatures in Cardiff don't seem any better than here and my cumbers are still indoors. Having watered carefully, not leaving wet compost mounded up at base of stem, they sulked & flopped overnight when left in conservatory and temp dropped. Picked up ok when warmed up.

Considering how fast they germinate and how bad the weather is I'd consider another go, last year mine didn't go in greenhouse until end of May/ June and they gave a great crop. So maybe planting o/s end June you'd get some. Or maybe buy a few and keep indoors a few weeks..that might be best option.
