  1. Today's tip:

    Get your lungworts ( Pulmonaria Officinalis ) in now so they get used to the cold weather...

    I realise I'm not your favourite person, but I was originally only trying to correct your latin name useage. Thus: Pulmonaria officinalis. I have to teach this to my Biology students over and over. Why should you be any different?
  4. Perhaps because i am a grown up with a sense of humour !! Chill out big J

    And I thought you were a Pan troglodytes!
  6. OOO do I sense some History here?
    btw Jacob, Biology teacher? I hope you are putting that on your dating details- always a good lure, that'un.
  7. taster would you like to see round my potting shed ?
  8. At this time of year i like to sharpen my dibber
  9. No doubt my readers know that after a season of strenuous dibbing one's dibber becomes blunt & difficult to push in

    Stop cheating and pushing your own thread back to the top.

    Any more porno? You were doing good.
  11. make sure you scrape the mud off your dibber before sharpening it
  12. You can turn over my leaves if you like
  13. i would love to Zahra...you could make houmous while i prepare your humus
  14. this is also a good time of year for tidying up your string

    even on the coldest days of the year there is plenty to do in the garden

    this morning i sprayed the Mulberry tree (Morus Bombycis) with WD40

    this ensures a plentiful crop of fruit and glossy leaves for the silkworms (Bombyx Mori) to enjoy in the spring

    Hi Daddy:)

    I am a bit of a plant expert. We had a massive garden and spent about 9 years buying loads of exotic plants. We had quite a few different types of eucalyptus... a silvery one and ones with gorgeous peeling barks.

    I had a stripy New Zealand flax that was growing about 6 feet high and used to get a lovely central flower on it sometimes.

    We had a couple of Myutus lumas that are quite delicate but seemed to manage to survive.

    Of course, I had to leave it all behind but did take my bottle brush plant with me ...it's in a big ceramic pot and seems to be surviving the winter.

    I love plants,trees and butterflies :))))))))

    You can't beat being close to nature ...after food and sex of course:)

    Do you picnic and bonk at the same time then? Sort of combines all three!

    Stawberries can be very versatile ;-)
  19. Welcome back to The Shed

    i have received several letters asking for suggestions for Christmas presents for keen gardeners.

    ( the letters all seem to be in the same shaky handwriting )

    i would recommend string as first choice. if string is unavailable then raffia would be acceptable

    ps Daddy is unable to enter into personal correspondence & cannot return the photographs
    of "Greenfingers" from Robin Hood's Bay

    A Happy Christmas to you all !!

    *waves dibber energetically*
