 Exactly, blakeys on your shoes, or dad sticking an extra sole on them.hand me down clothes that you had to wear whether they fitted you or not. Bread and sugar for tea, mind you, did you ever see a fat kid in those days. 


My mum used to say, ' don't talk to me about good ole days, cos I can't see anything good about those times.' 

EU. In or Out?

The new leaflet, very subtle....heavenly blue on the stay in side.....devil red on the out side.


do they think we are stupid and not see what they are doing there.


I would hate to think that someone might copy and paste something I may have told them in a PM on the open forum.

Increasing begonias

I did that with mine this year, you can get some flowers of sulphur for the edges, it's very cheap on Amazon, you only need a small packet of it. Leave about four chits on each piece.

Crumbs, I'm afraid to write anything on here now.  


We had a 'front room' Lyn.   Only to be used on high days and holidays.   At Christmas a fire was lit to expel the smell of damp and make it seem more homely.   It didn't work.   If my moth heard the door handle rattle to that room, she would shout "whose that going into the front ?"  come out of there.   The rest of the year we were all cramped into one room while the 'front room'  stood still in time.

 Exactly the same in our house RB😀

My other half had 'The Parlour' now to me, being a mere commoner, that conjures up somewhere where the dairy maid works, or the milking  shed, but MIL's parlour was only to be sat in, no playing and they were not allowed to take any food whatsoever in there, definitely no crumbs in The Parlour' I 

Can you have too many fruiting shrubs/trees?

UPPER CASE WRITING IN BOLD IS GOOD, ARE YOU ON AN IPAD PANSY?

No sign of begonia or dahlia...

Both those should have been started off in trays and kept in the warm, I haven't planted mine out yet, so would assume yours have died.


in my opinion it's too late to start now, but you could buy ready grown bedding plants for this year, and try next year with your own tubers and corms. But both must be kept in the warm until biggish plants then planted out mid to end of May. 

The animated gifs ie. advertisements are very annoying

I'd like an ad blocker - but have looked at the App Store and have no idea which is the best one for my iPad, to increase my enjoyment of this forum. Advice would be much appreciated. I'm getting quite dizzy from moving ads ....

If they have roots they'll grow. Pot them up and wait a while.
