Hiya guy

Keenness I think.  To show energy too....viz., display an active enthusiasm for plants etc. and a passion for horticulture

To know the company.  Have you looked up the company?  When did it start?  What does it sell?  Just plants?  Say why you would like to work there.

Do you have a favourite group of plants?  Do you know the basics ...the essentials for healthy plant growth?  (sorry if you do but I think you will be asked this) 

Good luck guy.  Let us know how you get on

Well done dannyboy

A man of good taste methinks......growing grasses.  Can I add to earlier comments about grasses that ....ESP for the smaller ones.....plant in groups of three if you have the space?

Got to say D T Brown seeds and veg plants, onion sets etc are excellent.

Best onions for a very lomg time.  Used to sow my own or buy sets.  This year I bought onion plants.  Superb.

Hello forkers

Busy day but it included a lovely meal.  

I used to run a local charity....covering much of Cornwall.  We supplied defibrillators, monitors of all sorts and funds for heart research and equipment.  Our name was printed ...usually...and it was very satisfying to see.  The emergence of the national lottery signalled the end for this and many charities.  

Sorted my friend's car with her garage.  Think it was good I was there.  Her story was initially doubted.  Why do mechanics dismiss the ladies so easily?  After my hands were removed from the challenging garage guy's throat her car was booked in.  (ok....not quite. )

Not so cold.  Prob 11 or 12 today and not forecast to fall too much tonight

Hope those of you with problems right now are coping well
