Thats a lovely shaped tree San and you deserve it after waiting 3 years .. :o)

27 Feb, 2011

 

thanx karen, cant wait to get it into the pot, need some new composs next :o)

27 Feb, 2011

 

Yes, and will you plant something in the top of the pot around it as well....my neighbour has one in her front lawn and around it she has primulas. It looks pretty, and it has really filled out. It's been there for about four years now and it is quite a feature.

27 Feb, 2011

 

yes will get something for the top karen, primulars sounds lovely idea, will try get something this week, a busy week for me, art tomorrow at carols house then art class tuesday, all go then housework inbetween, i need more days lol

27 Feb, 2011

 

I really need to get some housework done San, but I feel so bloomin exhausted with this virus. I hope I have a bit more energy tomorrow. Callum is making dinner....again! Thank goodness he's still at home. If I get another cold after April I will have to beg him to come home and cook for us!....or just eat curry every night! :)) Any news on Joe getting a transfer?

27 Feb, 2011

 

poor you karen i know how you feel and at least callum can cook for you while home, i only have baz haha, but good for losing weight .
joe has decided to stay at lampeter, i think i was right, home sickness and think with most of them feeling it, that made them argue about every little thing, since second term all has been ok and joe very happy again, himself and two friends are looking for accomadation for next year now, he has joined the rugby team, learning guitar, his friend teaching him and also has a girlfriend even though they are being sensible and not getting to serious, both want to do well which im pleased. so even though he has a unconditional place at bournemouth now he has decided to stay there, glad really as can you imagine if he didnt like it when he transfered , relief really :o)

27 Feb, 2011

 

We had a ceanothus that died and replaced it with one of these :)

27 Feb, 2011

 

it awfull when you lose something, but always nice to have something else paul.

27 Feb, 2011

 

Yes Sanbaz - I had one in the front too that died - not ceanothus but something that smells gorgeous - like those smelly coloured rubbers we had at school lol but not giving up moved it to a pot see if it comes back

27 Feb, 2011

 

That's great news about Joe San. Really pleased for him...and you!

27 Feb, 2011

 

hope it does paul lol, cant remeber them at school, to long ago now haha
thanx karen, he`s a good lad and wont rush things, always thinks once we have talked :o)

27 Feb, 2011

 

Sandra put mine in large pot as they only grow 1.2metres and i'm not much good at metric but i think there more or less at that height .

28 Feb, 2011

 

carol that will be the height because they are grafted so the stem wont grow now, it will just bush out more, mine going in pot to for now anyway :o)

28 Feb, 2011

 

Nice buy Sandra........

28 Feb, 2011

 

I agree Milky smashing little tree.....

28 Feb, 2011

 

thanx maureen and Dotty ;o))

Lovely shrubs Sandra, but a word of warning make sure you plant it where it has space to spread its branches, as although they dont get taller they do need plenty of room to show off their lovely shape;0)

4 Mar, 2011

 

thanx carole and will give it room, its looking very silvery at the moment, so pretty ;o)

5 Mar, 2011

5 Mar, 2012
