Wish list for seed and plant swap

Posted: 27/08/2014 at 10:05

I have just collected white Aconitum seeds. Anyone want some?

I have ordered some from Parkers, They are called Ruby Giant and Chrysanthus cream. In actual fact, they are purple and yellow, I wonder who names these plants.

Thank you SGL, I do work hard, but love it, I am just thinking now of extending another bed. There is far to much grass here. I would rather plant and weed than spend a day doing the grass.

I dont open the garden because I dont really like to be tied to time, its only me working on it and sometimes it gets a bit behind!

 I think it would un nerve my parents, dads turned 90 mums 86, bless em. Anyone would be most welcome to come here if you are in the Dartmoor area, just let me know.

Thank you so much.

I love it, I started digging that big  border in 2011, it was like a Pine forest, there was 7 conifer trees 25 years old in there, then it was planted up in 2012.

The long border, I dont know if you have seen that, but it was a conifer hedge and only planted in Spring this year.

I think its good because we have a lot of rain, I never need to water, only the baskets and tubs.

Anyone tried them deep fried, salt and vinigar reminded me.

 Its not easy stamping on them with wellies, they slip through to the edge and out.

Better not get side tracked, Graham will tell me off again.

Two big reasons why I cant come, I live many miles away, but apart from that I couldnt leave my parents for that long.
