Seed swap

Hey Paul welcome aboard  and I guess we've all commited some kind of re-colonisation I prefer to call it .

P&P isn't really that much and if we're all swapping it shoud work out ot be quite fair, I really dont mind paying a few pence especially when I get little parcels through the door that could bring years of enjoyment.

Nutcutlet, thank you yes I GOT THE JOB  (bit gutted I don't seem to have the xmas smileys but nothing can upset me today )

I've not been very succesful so far with cuttings although I have some yew that seems to be going ok can't wait for spring now so we can experiment with rooted plant swap

Christmas Greetings

Your garden is beautiful Busy Lizzie the tree's in the backdrop are fab but I see what you mean.  Hopefully mine will grow as lovely as yours and Rains and I have an area at the bottom of the garden where we need some privacy from a new housing estate and I couldn't think of a nicer evergreen tree to use.

Hi all

Sam I hope your well and had a nice weekend, thanks again for this thread,, its been like santa came early .Good luck with the drift wood, sound like an interesting project.

Hi Nutcutlet, thank you so much they came today, they look good enough to eat .  Did some research this morning (after a heavy second interview that hopefully went well) and planted a few and kept some ready for spring.


slugs in the kitchen

Posted: 17/12/2012 at 15:23

Hi Flowering Rose.  We had a slug problem in the kitchen at our old house, they were coming in through a hole next to the washing machine waste pipe.  I used salt, just a line near where I thought they were getting and it did stop them.  Its a little messy tho, they shrivel up and leave a snotty mess but its better than having them slime along the kitchen floor.

El Chaffinch what a lovely project and such a shame they didn;t stick with your original design.  What a great use of an awkward slope, we have a heavily sloping back garden and planning and design is problematic to say the least but this thread is inspiring and shows what you can do with some imagination.

Keep us posted on your next project

Digitalis illumination pink

I have it on order too delivery April 2013, I grow the standard pink and have sown seeds of white which seem to be growing quite string and healthy but these are beauftiful and more on the exotic side, thanks Verdun I've learnt something new today I hadn't realised when I ordered that the parentage is the isoplexis canarian foxglove (which is has a beautfully exotic feel) and that the plants are sterile so wont set seed .
