what a thoughtful hubby you are Norton2. I'm with Gemma and visiting second hand places or scrap yards. 

If there isn't one near you though there are plenty of other gifts. Some of my favourite gardening presents are;

new wheel barrow

cold frame

hive shaped compost bin

book on how to propagate

labels (great stocking filler)

gardening gloves

seed trays ( good quality sturdy ones )

kneeling pad

good quality garden string

arch to grow things over

raised bed

the wooden garden desk and the green plastic garden tidy in the photo below


Dont forget the wrapping paper!

its here

Do any of you put your wellies by the radiator when it's chilly? 

We've got the log burner going here. 

I love reading about everyone else's weather. 

Its VERY cold here in Notts.

What great choices! I love that so few people on here are barrrrr humbug. I love christmas!

For me, it's a toss up between Mary's Boy Child by Boney M and Little Donkey!

My garden looks like it's been burgled!

Edd - a whole year you say? 12 complete months? January to December? Four full seasons? 

There's not a hope in hope-land of me being able to leave this ruby nectar alone for such a long time!  4 months will just have to do!

It's sooooo tasty! 

It's a big worry......

Edd my friend - you are in fire! Like the ice lolly gag very very much!

Hope you have a lovely display when they do flower. One of the things I love about gardening is that there is always something around the corner. Even trees that have shed their leaves have little bids on them now - well they do on mine anyway!

It's a big worry......
