• @hayleyagora did you see the recent GW when Monty Don was planting out Eurybia/Aster divaricatus/White wood aster? I’ve been trying to source it and it would look lovely at your place, too :-)

    • Hi Jane – the RHS shop sells this plant (if you want to remortgage :lol: ) and lots of other places online. I had it in my old garden and the bees and hoverflies just loved it. I have something similar here – a white aster called ‘White Ladies’. It is similar in form but with a more Michaelmas daisy flower. I got mine in the gc but you can buy…[Read more]

    • Oh Jane, only just seen this, no, I didn’t but will take a look, thank you! :good: :-)

      • Hi Hayley :-) I managed to source some – contact me if you want to know where from. I’ve sent for
        “Eurybia schreberi” and “Eurybia divaricata” – note the name change. I’ll also see how easily they self seed.

    @Hayleyagora Morning All, Hayl you asked me about the beans, I did answer you, As long as there are two leaves left on them they will be ok, :rose: But I would plant a few more just in case

    Morning Clickers, lovely mild morning, although there is quite a bit of cloud, but mild and dry is ok with me. :good: Off for a swim shortly and then need to have a quick gallop into the town. Have a good day all and welcome home H @hayleyagora :rose:

    • Morning Karen. Mild and dry is good. Enjoy your day :-)

    • Good morning K, it’s good to be back and spring has sprung!! :-) :love:

    • Good morning Karen ..I didn’t know you rode horses as well as swimming and sailing ;-) HAGD :rose:

      • :lol: :lol: Well actually Miss smart pants , I used to have a beautiful 16.2 chestnut thoroughbred called Woody, who was a complete head case, but that is another story. ;-)

        • Touche [e -acute :excruciating: ] :lol:
          Woody sounds wonderful … so where is he now?
          Don’t know much about horses, but 16.2 sounds quite tall .. I bet Woody was a cracker :good: :rose:

          • He was huge, a sweetheart, and bonkers and I loved him to bits. He was a rescue Anne, left in a field with little water and damn all food. :-( An ex point to point racehorse with a damaged tendon, but he came good with a lot of work. He gave me 13 wonderful years but sadly in his old age his eyesight became very bad; he was retired then.…[Read more]

            • Bless you Karen, and bless Woody : a good age, after a good life thanks to you :love: Thank you for telling me about him xx :rose:

    @Hayleyagora Hi Hayley :high-five: You are having a busy season by the sound of it…hope it’s fun as well as hard work :good: :love: :rose:

  • NorthernTeacher posted an update 1 year ago

    Morning clickers and especially Hayley @hayleyagora where’ve you gone? – your click was there and then it wasn’t!!! I can hear the rain outside. Yep, I know it’s early but where is everyone :lol: Just here talking to myself… see you later, I expect :-)

    • dixon replied 1 year ago

      Morning Jane. :-) They will take you away for that. :lol:

    • Hayley replied 1 year ago

      Good morning Jane :-) Dix and I are here so you’ve not gone doo dally yet…or maybe you have ;-) I had the hiccups first thing so deleted one too many posts! Can’t believe it’s the 2nd of Feb, January went by in a flash. Must get my spuds sorted, have you got yours yet?

      • Good morning, Hayley :-) I’ve ended up sending for some Charlottes as we haven’t been able to get to a gc and I thought they might sell out soonish :nailbiting: I only wanted a taster pack of Arran Ps but ended up getting 1kg of Charlottes – the smallest I could find. What are you getting?

        • Hayley replied 1 year ago

          Charlotte potatoes are good ones Jane :good: as I’m sure you’ve discovered. They’re an all round good early spud, (2nd early) but whose counting? I think I may try Swift in the greenhouse this year. Voles have infiltrated my front garden in which I thought it was safe to grow veggies so I’m going to wait and see if they return ;-)

          • Sorry to hear about the voles, Hayley – much as we love wildlife, some species push it a bit, don’t they ;-) Enjoy the panto and Malta with Kath even more so! :rose:

    • Morning Jane, sorry miss, I’m late this morning. ;-) Got a last wee tidy up on that computer first thing. :good:

      • Let you off, then, busybee ;-) and good morning, Karen :-) Very cold here but not windy like ‘they’ said it would be. A bit of work today. Hope you have a good one :rose:

        • cilla replied 1 year ago

          Morning Jane. I often talk to myself, the only intelligent chat I get….and I get all the right answers :lol: I bought 10 Charlottes at the GC and then found a voucher for 10 free ones at our local Wyevale :confused: Have a good day whatever you are doing…..you lot were up early!

          • Morning Cilla :-) you’re going to be having a lot of spuds then ;-) Finished the first of the Peter May Lewis trilogy – pretty good – and the second one is on the table. Are you bird watching from the conservatory again?

            • cilla replied 1 year ago

              No Jane, it has been too cold but the temps are rising so might get in again soon. Getting up now, see you later 🖑

  • VegVamp posted an update 1 year, 2 months ago

    Morning Clickers, and a belated hello to H and Paula @hayleyagora and @paula-smith, who seem to have slipped off again. ;-) Bloomin dentist this morning, Boo, :-( It’s in Enniskillen, so might try and get some dreaded shopping done while I’m there. Have a good day all. :-)

  • VegVamp posted an update 1 year, 4 months ago
