Kate-you will be proud of me-I watched MOTD this morning

This one is for Flo-why are radio actors never as you imagined?



Am I posting too much?

I sense that perhaps some members think I post too much so I will refrain from commenting if that's what others feel. I enjoy reading all the posts, all the views, all the side issues and respect each and every one of them. I am far from an expert, never pretend to be, but I have a fairly good understanding of the subject mainly through success AND FAILURE and hope to encourage others to make fewer mistakes

No you are not-don't be so sensitive-lighten up a bit- a bit of understood humour never goes amiss

I assume this posting is about a disagreement yesterday/today-I have asked you tell us more about yourself and show us some images of your garden-why not do that?

Join in the chat a bit more-sometimes you do have a tendency to come over as rather serious- as someone else remarked the other day-but then we are all different- which is always the same on a forum.

Come on Christopher-we are all mates here

Green is the colour of my true loves eyes, in the morning, in the morning when we rise. You've started something now - need to find out who sang it !

This forum is a discussion. To me my replies to the topic.... Filmbuffy asked for something "to plant now to ensure garden has colour".....sincerely and accurately addresses this..


The topic was "what can I plant for autumn and winter flowering and veggies I can grow"- am sure we could all come up with endless suggestions for plants to ensure the garden has flower-that is the main aim of a garden

Your advice- as is mine and everbody elses- is I am sure given with the best intention-but sometimes we get it wrong or don't read the question properly-perhaps if we do get it wrong-just admit to it and move on-is the best course?

I notice you are happy to offer advice and suggestions to a lot of posters-that is good and is welcome obviously based on your experiences that you are happy to share.

Do you have any pictures of your garden that you can post?-it does sound as though it is considerable-and would like you know more about it and how long you have been gardening?- and you ran a nursery business did I see?

Tell us more

Just watched three rampantly gay blokes singing Respect and mincing about on stage-it was not family viewing-it just looked weird

Wallflowers will be available now plus sweet Williams and stocks. Winter flowering pansies, azaleas, rhododendron, winter flowering heathers, and what about a red/maroon grass-like uncinia? And evergreens shrubs like dwarf hebes and conifers......heck. I could go on and on. Winter can be very colourful

Wallflowers azaleas and rhodos won't flower until March at the earliest and sweet williams not till June-I thought the question was about autumn/winter colour?

For some reason -and I read this a few weeks back-it has been a good year to be an ant- something to do with this years weather.

There have certainly been a lot of questions on here-probably a bit late to do anything about it now as they will soon disappear back to whether ants go for the winter
