Rake

Posted: 06/07/2014 at 16:10

One of the reasons I've stopped using the forum is the frequent snide comments about Monty... It's juvenile and just plain unhelpful when it's questions like this. I thought the rake looks pretty useful to me, and it's not as if Monty seems to have the newest equipment, it was only the week before I saw him wearing boots with holes in them, and if I'm not mistaken his tools look pretty well used and old. It's not as if he uses tools every week with brand names emblazoned on them.

 

Frankly I think some of your attitudes are pathetic and tiresome.

I'm not a celebrity worshipper, far from it, but from what I can tell MD rarely seems to cause offense to people, quite unlike other celebrities that grace our TV screens. If you don't like him avoid threads that talk about him, the items he uses, and the methods he uses in order to grow.

Some questions about Basil

sounds like what's happened to my spinach! Bolted already! At great speed! And I've seemingly followed your instructions to a tee Steve!

Oh no that's a shame! If you ever come this way again, I'd love a cuppa tea!

Wish list for seed and plant swap

Bekkie, I live in Worcester, so not a million miles away, but I'm also happy to receive things by post. I have a fair few 'mystery' bulbs that I don't see me using too much, dahlia, anemone's, rhanunculus (sp?) they were the patio bulb sets you get from wilkinsons for a few pounds, we planted a few and they've all come up. The anemone's are something else! A new favourite.

I have a lot of seeds too, some we might not ever grow, all still in date! Mainly veg, but some flowers such as morning glory.

Right now I wouldn't want anyone to see my garden! There seems to be an awful lot of death and decay at the moment!

Rose Cutting Successful - now what??

Posted: 03/07/2014 at 16:38

What are your feelings on 'acquiring' cuttings, there's a solicitors down the road that have a fabulous array of traditional roses, absolutely gorgeous, I know none of the names, but I love to try some cuttings from them. I suppose I should ask permission... but they do hang over the wall somewhat

Anyway, lots of tips on here, thanks!

 Some snaps from Spetchley Park Gardens in Worcester. It's so beautiful there.

Discount supermarkets

coming from retail this won't be an individual store's fault personally, they might be asked to water every day, but whether management have enough hours in the day to devote to someone standing outside watering, when there's queues building, customers that need helping, delivery processing etc etc, I can understand how plant welfare falls to the waste side.

Seed Exchange

I have an allotment so anything I can pop in there! This year we've only had chance to grow a couple of things here and there. It's been a learning curve these past 6 months!

I had to google!

I have a very small patch of a garden, from what I read quickly it wouldn't be too happy in a pot? I had some very standard SPs this year, which weren't overly successful I have to say but for a few pennies I'm not surprised, I'd love to try again next year though! But I am almost entirely limited to pots. nothing seems to thrive in our borders
