Whatever you write, I still have a blank page on the tablet. I have to use laptop to see profiles. I cant do PM's'either.

In fact, the whole tablet is a pain in the wotsit, because I cant even see what I am typing in the posting box.

Thats right Steve,  less room needed as well.

I bought the seeds from Amazon, very cheap.

To everything there is a purpose, what is the purpose of slugs and snails.

I go around with a stanley knife and cut then up, at least that way they get dug back into the soil and enrich the ground. They then have a purpose.

I grow mine from seeds too. Simple and a lot, lot cheaper. I once read that someone grows them and treats them as anuals. I dont think mine will be ready for picking any decent amounts this year though, they seem to be taking ages to grow, watched pot and all that!

Garden tattoos? Or generally cool and interesting tattoos?

Posted: 27/05/2014 at 23:31

My grand mother, born around 1880, had a tattoo and pierced ears, my son and his mate went to Docs in  Union street  Plymouth to get a tattoo each, mate came back with something about an inch high, son came back with one earing! Cowards.

 I once went out with someone who had a large Cornish flag tatooed on his back. Cant say I like them though.

How Safe is Your Garden?

Posted: 27/05/2014 at 22:44

I would give anything to have my children as littluns again. They are 46 and 39 now but I still remember them mucky playing in the garden.

Looks like we dont need another book on 'Safe Gardens' Mike.

How Safe is Your Garden?

The trouble these days Fleur, is that you mustnt tell children off for anything.

I was told as a child, dont touch the plants, especially the lupins and Laburnum, or else, well, you didnt want to know what the or else might be. I am still here as are my 90 year old parents. I dont think as youngsters they were particular about hand washing either. I have had alsorts in my gardenin the past, well, still have, I just told my kids you do not pick mummies flowers. 

I would draw the line at deadly nightshade though!!.
