I was feeling below par on Friday so I texted my boss at 6am to ask to take the day off as annual leave.  You have to jump through so many hoops to take a sick day that it is easier to take them as leave.

Lots of birds on my feeders this morning.  Am thinking about nipping along to the garden centre to use my token for a free pot of tea.

Growing holly as a pot plant?

Posted: 06/01/2013 at 10:14

I have a holly tree in a pot.  It was a seedling from a tree in dad's garden which he potted up for me.  I have been growing it for ten years.  Repotting is a painful process because it is so prickly.  It is now about 4' tall and had it's first ever red berry this winter (just one).

Hi all.  I thought I would pop in and wish you all a happy new year.   I don't come here often because I never have the time to keep up!

It's a bit misty down here at the sussex seaside and not windy (for a change).  Lots of my snowdrops have come up and the rosemary is in flower so I am feeling very springlike.  I am going to undecorate my holly and apple trees this morning.  I tied red bows on them to cheer my garden up for Christmas.  Dad said that the birds would pull them off but the sparrows have completely ignored them.

Just popping in for a quick read and to aaaahhhh over photo's of tiny horses.  Am sat in the garden in the dark being bombarded by moths. 

My Gardeners Delight definitely have blight so they will be for the chop tomorrow.   This will be the first time I have ever had it (in ten years), so I suppose I have been lucky up to now.  The tumbling toms are in a completely different part of the garden  and they still look OK so I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Wasn't there a Glynis in Cagney and Lacey?

The beans are loving it in the conservatory.  I have already started eating them.   Such a relief to have anything at all growing!  Where are you?  (I haven't managed to read all the previous posts)

Yes, mine have gone too.  I saw a couple of them at the weekend but nothing since.  It's always sad when they disappear.  I love it when they arrive in May like heralds of the summer.

what can i use instead of plastic pots

I always keep yoghurt pots to use as plant pots.  I'm not allowed to put them in my recycling bin so I'm recycling them myself.
