Serious stuff......no! Really

Lily.  Bit concerned that fairy exacts a revenge..   

I can assure ??ou Brumbull and I are 2 separate distinct individuals so no split personality.    

Gilly.....I know.  It is a point of concern. Mind you, eye of newt is tasty.  You do know it's a traditional Cornish breakfast........funnily enough bat wings too.  And Cornwall is riddled with tales of mystery and legend    The most haunted places are in cormwall.

David.  Mine is garnet too.  Not in the same league as yours.  Too much salt in the air for real autumn quality down here.

Serious stuff......no! Really

Yes but don't tell Fairy..........er.......anyway it was Brum wot said it. It was his idea to say those things. I didnt know wot I was sayin.  And....does she really have magic power?...oops!

bought 10 litre plant but received 7 lt. sellers says its a 10 lt in a 7lt ??

If you are dissatisfied amd don't  want that tree you are entitled to your money back on the basis that it was not supplied as described. Yes, it should have been in a 10 litre pot....I.e. a bigger plant would have therefore been expected.  Unless the website actually said the pot size was a guide only then it is misleading and false advertising. 

I suggest 3 things

A full refund of your money.  

A discount ..£20....because the plant is smaller than suggested

A threat to name and shame on the forum.....if they do not respond.

However, what size is the tree?  Is it a named variety?  Does it look a healthy tree?  

It does seem to me to be expensive.  You must have considered it worth that price when you ordered it.  Where will this tree be located over winter?  

(I received a number of perennials supposedly in 3 litre pots once.  They arrived in those pots but were not 3 litre size plants.  They argued their point much as this supplier has done.  I returned the plants minus their pots and had full refund.  )

For me it's excellent.  Just realised its David's Acer again.  Gotta say I wouldnt shape it at all. Love the way it naturally "flows".  Which variety is it David?   Obviously protected spot for it.  Mine  has been excellent for the summer but leaves now gone.  Not a patch on yours though

KEF, not bad.  Not just hint of grey tho.  Prob not far off I guess.  But men are younger than women so if I am older than you I'm not really cos I just explained why 

Fairy, fairy fairy!  Such a lack of respect for your betters.  Still get the odd run in when I take my dog tho.  Can't beat my 19 year old niece at air hockey at amusement arcade and, boy, do I try hard to.    Mind ??ou no one beats her at anything. People say Ive never grown up......oh, do grow up, they say respectfully 

Busy.....I remember the summer of 1903 ....wot a scorcher.  

So, the clues are there ladies 

Now, fairy........well. She rides a broomstick but a very modern one.  Turbo charged. Metallic blue cos it's made of lightweight aluminium but still has her L l plates.   She pretends she's building a garden but really she sits on a deckchair waving her wand in one hand and a can of rough cider in the ofher and swearing like a trooper when she forgets her spells. Oh!  She's greatly overweight as can be seen by the curve of that broomstick and..........oops! I'll get my coat now I think 

 

Raised bed and breeding my own slugs!!

Yep, exactly what I saw dove,,after the hoovering was done.

Just a thought red dahlia.  What about an edge of copper pipe?  Tucked inside the boards?    Copper does work......put a copper circle around a valuable old fashioned violet for a friend and it grew without attack all summer.  Copper tape around pots is effective too. Anyone know how much copper pipe is now?  How big is your raised bed red dahlia?  

HELLO FORKERS!

The bake off was won by....the winner...hee hee hee, oh alright!  I'll get my coat. 

Fed up. Arsenal lost tonight 

Potty...me too.  No chocs or donuts. 

I want to grow something different next year.  I'm always growing something new but what now?  Got new agastaches and new heleniums will arrive in spring but awesome  is called for now.     I guess everybody else thinks that way too

 

HELLO FORKERS!
