Why am I so special,to,the forum?

Posted: 12/10/2014 at 19:52

I come from one gypsy and one Irish Grandmother,  one never went to school, and I hardly ever went,the other in service at 13, they are important to me, I am important to my family, my degree in horticulture (not!)makes me important to the forum and I try to answer questions honestly.

I know I will never be as clever or as funny as Verdun, I mean, how can anyone be more cleverererer than a Cornish man. By the way, Verdun ,you may be having Jethro back, he's sold up from here!

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Thank you everyone. Much appreciated.

We can only take a day at a time and take what comes.

I have told my two  kids, I have left it to them to tell their sons.

Daughter isnt going to tell her two just yet, they are 11 and 5, she thinks they will worry for too long, best tell them nearer the time.

I really hope your friend gets well, my mum has lived with her stoma for over 10 years.

I hadnt thought about potting plants in grit only, does anyone else do this?

bags for composting

It depends on how quickly you want your compost to be ready, you cant beat wood for warmth and that works them best, my OHput a load of stuff in a builders bag in his yard, it wasnt ready a year later, that would be no good for me, I need a quick turnover of the stuff.

You could do as suggested here, fill the bag then put another right over the top.

So, hands up who buys what they are told they need? But then us women are all a bit stupid and gullible arent we

My mum was very pleased that a Christmas catalogue came a few weeks ago, they have bought my Chrismas present.

Advice on Fuschia, please.

I think it may be Mrs Popple but not exactly sure, they have  been here for years, when my dad planted them,  been under 4ft of snow, blown about in gales, dad never put mulch on anything, it really is a toughy.
