I would say so as a general rule Blubell 

I may have just purchased 300 snowdrops in the free for £21.50! Accidently, obviously

What are you saying about slimming world tracey?!  My mums also called Tracy, but she's without the 'e'. She's been a slimming world consultant for 20 years, glad she's not on here haha

Greenhouse renovation?

Posted: 19/01/2014 at 21:17

Agree with edd, hate carrier bags, find bits everywhere all the time! 

Landgirl, thats a truly amazing greenhouse, what I'd give to have that! All I've got is an 8x6 bought for £50 a couple of years ago, apparently it was about 20 years old when I purchased it, and is missing the railing to keep the door in place and a pane of glass on the door too, can't afford anything decent. Please do keep it 

Thanks everyone

I'm guessing the answers no to that one nut 

Im with you though Tracey, everyone's so lovely on here and are happy to help with anything. I joined around last year and have been on and off, but nothing changes, it's still the same down to earth people on here 

Am I a sillee billee?

Am I a sillee billee?

ME! Every time I go out i come back with Atleast one more plant, they all get stacked up in my courtyard and have to wait weeks before being taken to my other garden (nans). I had to drill some shelving onto my walls  outside it got so bad. Can't help it though. My mum always complains, so I always come back with 'most people on my age spend there money on alcohol, drugs, or fags, think yourself lucky' and it always seems to work 

No compost reviews at B&Q

I always buy verve, £5.98 for 125 litres, and I ask me nanny to come with on Wednesdays so I get an extra 10% off! It's not brilliant, but you wouldn't expect it to be. Haven't had any plant deaths or anything, but I did find a nail, which I wasn't very happy about. Think B&Q must have had a lot of complaints, there was no disputing, they gave me a £20.00 voucher, which I spent on more compost! Obviously itd have been a different story if I had kids or my dog in the garden, but this all happened down my nans. 

Seeds have arrived!

I'm sure you will, I have faith in your abilities even if you don't! 

Just dont do what I (used to) do and chuck all the seeds in a tray, so if first try fails, there's still a few more goes left.

The photos not too brilliant, can you give us a short description, like thornless or not, single, semi or double flowers, serrated leaves?

KEF, I share your problems, my pond has overflowed and my lawn is a bog, got very intimate with my plants today and checked every single one for root penetration and rotting. Have to say my penstemon 'huskers red', seem to have rotted away, which it had feared. Oh well, bought a new packet today anyway. Also bought 7 nerine bulbs for a fiver, thanking my friend lots for letting me use her staff discount 

Gardengirl, you got all that lot for £5, or was it just the daffs? 

Here we haven't had one speck of blue sunshine whatsoever! All you guys that have, you blooming lucky,it seems to have been grey here non stop since Xmas!
