What are your favourite native flowers?

Travellers Joy, Harebells, Bluebells, Fritillary, narcissi, cowslips......all are beautiful and lift the spirits

Once again. SORRY.

Posted: Today at 18:04 are quite right in what you say..........but human nature and all that ?  Which I presume is exactly why you also felt the need to post a response

Just out of interest Gemma, what success did you have with the natural clay pond ?  I tried it once but it wasn't the most successful project I've  ever undertaken.


Once again. SORRY.

Actually it does hurt to listen......particularly for the umpteenth time.    As SG Lilly says - same old, same old. 

Mike does have information to impart.....trouble is that he is too OTT.  I feel embarrassed for him and also for his "lady forum member".  No way should he be discussing his friend and the contents of their PM,s on here.  To say the least, it isn't fair on his friend.

Too much information Mike........keep that sort of thing between yourselves.........if it is special to you both, keep it that way

Bought 6 bags of good organic compost today from someone who just knocked at the door (made him open one tho so I could see what I was getting ).  £20 for 6 x 40 litres.. I'm hoping it was a bargain as it looked better than MPC.  If not, that's my good deed for Xmas

What are you getting rid of...?

A Euphorbia of sorts......can't remember it's name which shows just how much it has endeared itself to me

Geoff Hamilton was, for me, the best presenter of GW.  Alan Titchmarsh was also an able presenter and he is, IMO, also a "real" gardener.  Only when he became involved in those awful makeover progs did I think he sold his soul to the devil.  He is an extremely knowledgeable plantsman........just got sidetracked by the demand for "instant -  never mind the cost " syndrome.  Bob Flowerdew was also a favourite of mine
