Lovely Snowdrops Marion-I have never been able to grow them. I plant them and they just disappear!

Still very blowy here in Stoke-on-Trent. Been out in the garden today to do a bit of tidying up, and there are lots of buds showing everywhere.

Without this forum, I don't think that I would have made the effort to do what I have with my garden-As long as it was neat and tidy, I wasn't too bothered. Now, I have the 'bug', and I have plans for changes to the boring bits of my garden that are covered in gravel, many more flowers and fruit and veg.

And it is nice to look in on other people to see what is going on, and chatting occasionally to other people.I agree with you Lesley K-it doesn't matter, it gives the forum members a chance to pat themselves on the back instead. More power to us!!

Gardening challenges for 2015

Pauline, I've had reasonable success with Peas in containers-just don't cram too many plants in one pot, and keep well watered. Mange-tout have been good in pots this year, and the dwarf beans. Carrots are a favourite too!

Thank you Marion for your thread-I have so enjoyed reading your posts. Today was my last day of working as a catering manager after 38 years in the business-I was made redundant by the company I worked for back in December last year, and we have finally closed today. I am looking forward to spending loads of time in my garden, and reading about the things you have done with your plot have inspired me to make my garden 'pay its way' as much as possible. I think that it is quite apt to be 'retiring' on the 31st December-a new start tomorrow!

I'm sure I shall enjoy your new thread just as much!

Happy New Year, to you and everyone on this site!!

Don't often post, but I agree with all of the above. It is good to talk, gardening stuff or otherwise!
