Many happy returns

I love Dover sole, nice bottle of Chablis perhaps?

I have been eating Marlin and Sword fish.

DD, both are possible. Being physically ill, particularly when you are not used to it, can make you feel down, and being down can certainly lead to being more susceptible to physical illness. Get better soon, and rest!

Sleep is not proving possible at the moment.

Love that Nutmeg plant, amazing smell.

Met a lovely chap, at a road side food stall, got talking to him, and it turned out he owned a garden, that he had been building for 6 years, and he wanted to open to the public.

I went to visit his 2 acre garden, and have never seen anything like it, every known tropical plant, plus a few from England as well.

He took me round the garden, and we swapped stories, he was a lovely man.

I took a load of fliers he had made, and took them to a few local hotels.

Us gardeners seem the same the world over.

Have just come back from the Caribbean, and there were no blue ones there. I too think it may not exist!

Hello all.

I am back from Grenada.

Sun, sea, sand, cocktails [ most unusual for me ] and beautiful scenery and colourful plants.

Am k######d, so off to bed.

Hope all are well.

See you later.

What new seeds will you be trying this year?

I was thinking of trying bananas this year, fidget, why do you think they did not grow?

Am also thinking of trying some different Salvias, although as usual, I only add to my list, I never seem to remove any that I have grown in previous years. I need more window sills.

I like Chard as an ornamental too, the dark form of Cavolo Nero also looks lovely in the flower borders.

Like many of you I expect, I am frantically studying the seed catalogues, wondering which new plants I might grow this year.

What new plants are you considering?
