Hi folks

Im in the East Midlands and the wind has really got up. 

Just heard an almighty noise. One of my big knee high pots has been blown over and  smashed. Just moved the others in case they go to. Just wanted to post to warn folks in case you have any favourite pots in exposed places.

Hope the greenhouse doesn't blow away!

Hope everyone is safe x

 

 

Good garden centre/nursery

Hi Nic

parking essential. Coffee shop. Good variety and turnover of annuals. Good range of pots. clean and tidy. No old stock. Helpful staff. Range of seeds. A USP like a particular plant specialised in.

Examples of garden centres I'd highly recommend are reg Taylor's in normanton, hollybeck near southwell and ruben shaws.

Lyn I love the sound of your Parka.  A coat with memories must be very special.

Runny - we call that Pocket Bingo.  A fiver or more calls for an air punch!

I reckon after its flowered. If you do it now you might lose some flower buds and also expose it to a chill.

Anyone just can't bring themselves to chuck away an old favourite item of clothing that you garden in?

Had these jeans for years.  Just finished patching them up for the fourth time! 

Love em!
