Anything on your Wish List?

I dont have a variagated one. Mine are light or dark blue. The light blue has reddish leaves. 

How short lived are they Verdun, I have pulled lots of bits off and replanted so I suppose thats the best thing to do.

DD, venison, how nice. My daughters friend is a gamekeeper in Cornwall so she gets the odd game given to her.

 I did used to ice skate, cant wear them though the blade sinks in the mud, rollers are much better.

Have you bought them as indoor bulbs, if so just leave them, they store their nutrients in the bulb.

If they are for garden or tub use, they need to be planted deep,but I would think they are for indoors. After they have finished flowering, let them die down in the pots, then dry them off and store. Plant them out in the garden next September.

Pop up for pie Verdun, only about 45 minutes drive. Mum did enjoy them, I also made some yorkshires, cats eaten one!

I have planted out some more perennial sweet peas, still some left. All the tulips are now in, wow, amazing what I can do when I get my skates on. Time to get dinner ready.

I could send you some in the Spring Susan. I should think someone will start a seed and plant swap thread in Jan/Feb time.

Problem is he seems to upset everyone he comes in contact with.

His poor neighbour got a real slagging off and that was on an open forum. He has openly said on forums that certain people were talking 'out of their arse' and that was a tutor! No wonder he has no friends.

He refers to everyone as his dear friend, he lives in a town where he has been for most of his life, surely he must have someone there to talk to, he has two daughters and grand kids,  We have all tried to help him fit in with everyone one this site. , he takes no notice.

I suppose we can forgive the almost unreadable, badly spelt  posts if he is drunk,  

I dont think mid 70's is old, so sad, yes, old and lonely, no.

To deck or not to deck.....!

I dont like decking, but thats for you to decide, but dont worry about pots rotting it, pots should be lifted slightly anyway to allow for drainage, just put pot feet under, you can get some very pretty ones.

As headstone restorers, could I just say that if you are making them for a headstone or cremation tablet, only use the polystyrene forms, the wire will rust and that will soak into the stone, there is nothing that will get it out.

Once again. SORRY.
