Cost of the hobby of gardening per year?.

Posted: 15/02/2014 at 09:12

The sheer pleasure of seeing plants in the garden, of eating home grown veg and fruit, of enjoying our own personal space, of taking delivery of ordered plants, and even sharing all of,this  on the forum well spent I think

Morning folks's pretty good here at the moment.  Calm and even some sun. 

What a night though.......terrible winds.  Didn't help that I also had to try amd sort out differences between my niece and her partner.  Ah well!    Things will no doubt sort  themselves

Sorry Nut about the car port.  Fingers crossed that's all the damage you have 

Keep safe FORKERS 

rotting daff bulbs

Tip them out and see if any bulbs are ok.  Those with rot should be ditched but any...and there may be some.....that look ok I would pot up again or plant out.  Just check them first

Not long in but it's still very very windy and wet.  Roll on spring.

Mike, sedges are not grasses, you are correct.  However, in this context....and in a general discussion of grasses.....sedges are offen included in the mix.  We were  simply trying to establish which carex Dove had already mentioned....was the likely variety.  

Many of us here...prob most of know our grasses from our sedges

Hiya claire

Think of the years of pleasure from plants.  You dont. need to justify spending money on something you love.
