I reckon that if you do it in half filled barrow loads you'll get offers of help. :lol:

Re: Intelligent plants?

Cucumbers usually manage to confer as to whether to grow or die each year. And my runner beans usually manage to avoid the bean poles no matter what instructions I follow without a lot of persuasion.

Only winding up up Tony - only winding you up. :mrgreen: :lol: :lol:

I'm on a boring job of tracking down email addresses to one I'm going to destroy so need some entertainment other than that. I'll go away and be good and stop picking on you.

Re: Spanish Roses

That's a hard one. A specialist rose grower might help you if you can track one down.

You didn't say that Sir. :dontknow:

So I presume that dandelions and docks are out too then - both of those can be eaten when young as can nettles. :dontknow:

Re: Curiosity/Armageddon

Clear the allotments of anything edible and share out the spoils. Would hate to see good food go to waste.

Re: Estate agencies

I reckon that the estate agents just show people the ones that have been on the books the longest that they want to sell.

Re: No rubbish fortnight

Interesting Weedo. It's quite widespread on our allotment site (along with Mare's Tail) but this is the first time that I've ever had to deal with club root. Just one more problem on a plot with "interesting" soil. Thing is - we get the odd day over here where temperatures are high enough to eradica...

Re: No rubbish fortnight

Yep that applies to me too AmalWarrior with regards to the electricals. And as for figure hugging clothes - hey but you don't get too far on the allotment if you can't move for the tightness of the clothing. With me it can be finding something that allows across the back rather than the front in shi...
