Wish list for seed and plant swap

Posted: 23/08/2014 at 19:36

SGL could I have some peachy and some pink ones please.  I have white.

I have potted Bekkies Yucca in 5 inch pots and put them in a sheltered spot in the garden. I will give them a little before planting out.

Talking om memories, I forgot to mention the seeds, thank you, I have already sowed them, how tall are they please. 

I am also drowning in nasturtium seeds.

Perhaps you are like me Bekkie in the way that you just cant waste a seed or plant, I really have to  be firm and only pot on what I need, usually got 100 of everything, then just cant throw them away.

By the way, dont put the old nasturtium plants in the compost bin, I have them springing up everywhere!


Help. Not sleeping.

Two hours sleep is enough for me most nights, quick power nap then up, I quite often post here at 2 -3 am.

I do drink loads of coffee, but that makes no difference because when I am really tired, I sleep

I am on the go all day, rarely sit down, but thats the way I like it.

I look on sleep as a waste of time, I could be catching up on reading, knitting, blogging.

The worst thing to do is worry about it, just get up and do something you love to do.Margaret Thatcher functioned very well on only 3 to 4 hours a night.

sorry who is this?

Not me Lily dear!. Hope I havent ignored you.

Sometimes the threads go up so quickly that by the time I think of something to say, its gone and I have lost it.

Often lost the plot!!.

I never click ignore for anyone, as I pointed out to Daniel I dont think that is the answer, the WUM needs to be removed or at least 

 told of their errors.

Thank you Bekkie, those little plants are fantastic, I didnt expect them to be that well grow. I am thinking about putting one as a backdrop to my new pond. Karen will love the other one in her front garden. Is there anything else on your wish list?

Seeds are on their way to Fishy, wont be there till Tuesday as its bank holiday.

From one who has a useless memory, I have forgotten who wanted the pale ice blue delphiniums, can you please get in touch by 'private message'

Those Sparrowhawks scare me, the noise is awful, We chase them off from the garden, there are fields and forests where they can catch birds and I cant see it.

I cant wait for my pond to be up and running and hopefully dragonflys will set in. We have frogs because earlier in the year I had spawn and reared dozens of froglets, so hopefully they will find the big pond and not come back to the muddy puddle I dug for them.

Just like the vine weevil!

Received 48 perennial plugs, but what do I do next?

Any multi purpose compost will do.
