The daftest thing you've done in your garden

Posted: 30/06/2013 at 19:54

Hi david 1 david. Do you have any funny tales to tell about creating your rose garden? I remember many years ago my little brother had a peddle car, white American thing, Father Christmas brought it. By Summer he was very proficient at driving, could even reverse it. On day he reversed over the end of the drive fell 3 / 4 feet and landed in Dad's rose bed Dad ran out picked him up, checked no broken bones and left him, then tended damaged roses, if I remember rightly Ena Harkness, Dorothy Cousins, Grandpa Dickinson, Blue Moon, Iceberg, Fragrant Cloud, Peace, soz brain dead when I started to type I thought of about 20 names.

I so wish I could have them now. Still got brother

Good Evening FORKERS

Verdon..what can I say?? If you are going to have calories have something worthwhile..I did indulge yesterday at GC a Lindz ? bar of dark choc' with nuts & blueberries, nice, will eat rest tonight.

But also swiftly grabbed a plant, friend fed up..thought of your comments and got a dwarf delphinium Summer Nights..another for a pot I's lovely. Sucker for blue plants.

Will fess up also ate mint & choc chip icecream at GC..just to slow friend down, honestly.

Not exactly gardening but I hate taking my shoes on and off to go inside, hence flip flops and crocs and mucky feet.

Hello Keen1, I'm the sensible one here as you'll no doubt observe  and I'm only 26 & 1/2  ish.

It would have to be a very, very big pot, and heavy or it'll blow / topple over. Wherever you put it you'll need lots of space to get around it. Going to take some watering.

I wouldn't do it. Doubt it will do it any good at all.

If it needs to go I'd just remove it and start again. You might find some off shoots at the base, this does occasionally happen.

Morning all. Off to Mum's grass cutting and no doubt weeding. Having pork kebabs with oregano and lemon, my version of Souvlaki with salad later, when bacon butty been worked off. Then 2 days without meat, oily fish day, and a veggie day. Well you've got to try haven't you? 

Bit hazy at minute but sun due to come out, so slip, slap, slop.

Have a good day all.

Welcome home BusyL. Hope you got purchases home okay.

Just tied toms up, again..all in garden suddenly taken off, must be the rain.

Thinking up a cunning plan to get my friend to nearby GC after lunch, she's not a gardener but does like cake & they sell it.

Hope all have a good day, good luck pipe repairer
