christmas parcel

Posted: 19/12/2013 at 15:30

I used Hermes, all  organised on line. weigh it yourself and print a label. Like the PO there are things they won't carry but it's all very clear on the website.

2Kg parcel, Peterborough to near Cardiff. £12plus at PO, £5.10p Hermes. For a bit more I could have had it collected from my home. you deliver it to a parcelshop. I think most of these are in local convenience stores. Mine was nearer than a PO.

I had mine sent to my granddaughter at home but I think they can deliver to the parcelshops as well to await collection. 

I was well impressed

Some kind of rationing system with more for people who donate could be introduced if grabbing is a problem.

A small cost helps. Have someone selling them rather than just leaving them on a table

do it at the end of the meeting when everyone is there  so a few members don't get into the habit of turning up early and grabbing everything

Can't think of anything else at the moment.

That is a lovely blue

A garden that has matured from young plantings is more to my taste than the instant. Instant is there, like it or not. Waiting for maturity is exciting.

I'm not sure if D. affinis is as tolerant of poor conditions as D. felix-mas. I'd choose Elvis if I were you Phil

I wonder how much space we need to fill Verdun

Honesty goes well in dry shade as well. and Pulmonaria rubra for the first of the bumblebeees.

and some snowdrops.

Most will be happier under the beech than they would be under the yew

You'll need some cyclamen as well

Maybe Dryopteris affinis, different species, same genus, lots of cultivars

Arbutus Unedo

Might have been too cold for the baby fruits through that never ending winter. They come from a warmer place than here. 

That's just a theory, I have no personal experience of these
