I would give anything at the moment to go for a walk in the snow, we had just a bit in Jan, then none at all.



experiences with free offers of plants

Posted: 25/03/2013 at 14:30

But they are not free, by a long chalk, I saw 2 clematis plugs free +  -P&P £5.60. thats 2.80 each.

I bought 3 for 1.99 from Parkers last spring, only plugs last year, but good plants this year and will go out when weather is better.

Moonsilk2,  would it be any use asking the friendly neighbours if you could help them to tidy their garden, you could maybe get a small work party of family and friends and make a day of it, and perhaps strike up even more of a friendship. 

At least your neighbours are approachable.

Clare, if you are on a tight budget, you could dig down by the fence and use plastic sacks, like your compost comes in, cut into wide strips. I have done this to stop ground elder creeping until I can find time to dig more out. it works well. and costs nothing.

Lizzie, you are right, I did buy those.

Lily, I havent a clue about the colour, again, labels just get lost up here, but all of them are very late I think, some hardly showing at all, or are they late, I dont know, we are a good 3 weeks behind most people with everthing up here on the west edge of Dartmoor, although Devon is generally warmer than other countys , I think its because we are so high up just here.

The reason I mentioned them was because Bev has a photo in the AG mag this week of a hyacinth fully opened.
