Which reminds me I'm baking later, she says, as it's too nippy to be in the garden today, plus taking a nap while brownies bake seems pretty idyllic to me today.

experiences with free offers of plants

Reviving this old thread for this GW offer

Are these going to arrive as plugs if they arrive alive at all? The only plants I've bought online were tomatoes and they seem to be doing v well, but folks up above don't seem to rate these deals...

Heh I'm a 16/18 but 5"10 so I'll take that! I could be slimmer, but hey I like muffins. More specifically the raspberry and white chocolate ones from Costa. Must find. Recipe.

Hello all, I'm still alive, I dared to wear jeans today, to keep and muck and stuff off my leg because I was merchandising this morning. If you go shopping and admire how good the mannequins look, admire a little harder because those beggars are a nightmare to dress. I'm covered in dust, muck and ache all over. They're heavy so and so's, fall apart at every opportunity and will not co-operate. However doing something, believe it or not - makes the day go faster and forgot about the itchy bitey thing. The redness has spread, but the swelling has decreased, which was the thing worrying me most if it might have been full of infection. Yuk!

Riddle me this, where has the lovely weather of yesterday gone? It's grey and horrible and I have a million things to do in the garden, tried to coax Matt into going to the GC, to no avail. bah.

I've got two of these plants which I assumed were marigolds initially, but they've grown much taller, so tall and heavy in fact I've had to stake it already.

There's a bulb on it that's green and looks spiky, will affix photo here...

 it's in the centre of the photo. I'm flummoxed as to what it may be! No doubt it'll be obvious as I grew nothing particularly rare or interesting from seed!

Ahhh good.
And with that I wish you all a good night. At least it'll be a good night when the folk from the pub next door *ahem* off and head home.
