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

Posted: 03/07/2014 at 16:52

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.

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.

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

Sweet Peas are on my wish list, as are veggies. I don't think i'll have too much to offer in return, but I will hopefully have some black velvet petunia seeds at some point in the future! I love them but understand they aren't to everyone's taste!
