That seems to work asilvert. Things don't always do as i expect in the computing world. All the pics I've posted before have been mine, this came from google images, perhaps I'm not allowed to use them. 

Sounds like a good party elf centre

i'm happy to save seed next year for swaps but didn't collect a lot this year. Mostly just let things seed and I'll move the seedlings around when they appear.

asilvert. I picked up a copy of Roger Phillips' 'Wild Flowers of Britain' from the charity shop today. It beats anything else I have for identification purposes. 

Thank Nutcutlet, thats one for my christmas list

Thank you so much

Hello everyone I'm Lisa and I am new around here, I was made redundant a month ago and can't thank you all for helping me through some rubbish days.

I live in Nottinghamshire and we have an average sized garden and we are luck enough to live near a country park so lots of wildlife and I enjoy feeding and watching the many birds.

I am a novice gardener but watch GW and have done for many years but never had much of garden to tend to until we moved here 3 years ago.

I have learnt so much already from you all from recipes to planting techniques to what you want for christmas and its been great fun and brightened my days

Nice to meet you all and thank you again

All I want for Christmas is...

Don't give up Daydaisy, we have a small pond and Mr & Mrs Mallard have come back every year for the past 3 years, they love the remains of the bird food and last year we bought some duck food from our local pet shop, Mr Mallard is my pic

Someone to help me move and repair my garden shed would be lovely thank you santa

Seed swap

Hi Sam

I'd be happy to seed swap, I've done it several times before from different boards and with some success, even taking into consideration all the comments above and never had any problem before.

I grew a lovely wildflower garden this year was really pleased with the result for little effort but the initial cost of the seeds was high plus I wanted seeds to encourage insects and they sold out very quickly this year.

I have mounds of seeds and would be happy to swap, I took pics of them all before I harvested too but with some of the native wildflowers would have to research what they are before swapping 

Can anyone identify my mystery plant?

christmas tree

James there is a thread in Nature Garden forum about hedgehogs and hibernation if not there is loads of information available via google, hope this helps


I bought my first real christmas tree this year and its lovely, I potted it up for this year and planned to put it in the garden next year.  I too think it is such a waste, we see many here dumped after xmas but a lot of people tend to buy the ones with no roots so they just get trimmed for a few weeks and then discarded

Can anyone identify my mystery plant?

Had to laugh at Flowering Rose, although I did find some cannabis growing under my bird table last year and promptly removed it (apparently certain bird feed has hemp seeds in)

Could this be echium pininana?

Hi Gardengirl

Not sure if this is any good or if they have colours but I found this

Or maybe what the grafitti artists use Montana or Krylon may work and they have a full range of colours.

Good day

What a great idea, I'd be happy to and seeds, I had a very good year last year with a new wildflower patch.  I bought the seeds initially but have harvested tonnes and they are so easy and the bee's and birds loved them in my garden and I'd be happy to share .

I,m still a very novice gardener but it would be great to have a go, save money and recolonise
