Thanks to everyone…

for the birthday wishes on the last post.  They’re much appreciated as were the comments by others on Allotments4All, Facebook and Twitter.

The coming months will probably see more armchair gardening and sofa flying/reading posts as there won’t be much happening on the plot now until next March.

I was there on Thursday when I cut all round the edges of the grass paths, which is the job that’s always at the bottom of my to-do list.

This is one of the last roses Pretty Lady which has been flowering since mid-May.


I was recently asked if I would contribute to Thompson and Morgan’s free ebook          Little Book of Garden Wisdom which I was happy to do.  It’s now available and well worth reading as it’s full of excellent tips by fellow growers.

Have a good week!

    Just looked at the T&M e-book. It will be a good sofa-reading reference in the winter months as well as the growing season.
    Pretty Lady keeps on giving, doesn’t she?!

  5. Enjoy your sofa flying Mike, a great winter occupation 🙂

    Such a pretty rose and a lovely plant to have on the allotment as it seems to go on and on throughout the year. The winter weather is definitely on the way now so time to sit back and choose some good books to get stuck into.

    Such a lovely rose. It’s always good to have a little time to reflect and relax after a busy year of gardening. I shall go check that ebook out. xxx

  9. That’s lovely that you’ve contributed to that ebook, well done.
    I think that rose is gorgeous, what a very nice colour.

    Enjoy these last days of October and wishing you a Happy November.

    All the best Jan

    You’ve made a good choice with Pretty Lady — such a well-formed shrub it’s become.
