It's getting CRAZY in this house/Jungle!!! Think I'll be camping in the garden soon...oh no, can't do that...it's full of plants too, an hotel maybe!

21 Feb, 2010

 

lol it is getting a bit crowded, does hubby mind or is he the same as you

21 Feb, 2010

 

He does car parts! I guess we're as bad as each other, but he likes the plants too...he's the one who potted up these Banana's bless him!

21 Feb, 2010

 

baz does car parts, always on ebay looking for a bargain lol but unlike your hubby baz doesnt like plants at all, grr lol

21 Feb, 2010

 

I like ebay too, I've had some lovely plants from there.

21 Feb, 2010

 

im going to be getting some of my plants off there this year jen, had a couple last year and are fine, so much cheaper :o))

21 Feb, 2010

 

Very true San much cheaper, I suppose they don't have the overheads that the Garden Centres have to take into account.

21 Feb, 2010

 

We'll have to send a search party into your house soon to find you ... those plants are taking over!

jen ive ordered my first bananna plant off ebay lastnight lol, so i will post a pic when it comes, :o))

22 Feb, 2010

 

Who said that....oh it's you Bernieh, I'm over here behind the bananaaaaaaa......aaaargh (darn coconuts)...somebody help me please, I've been in here for years! ;o)))
P.S. I DO realise that this is getting totally OTT btw! lol

22 Feb, 2010

 

Nice one San, you're going for the tropical look then, which one did you order?

22 Feb, 2010

 

musa basjoo says it hardy what do you think jen

22 Feb, 2010

 

They're Hardy to a degree let's say. You can plant them out in the border or very large pot, but you'll need to protect them with straw/fleece etc, they can't survive these low temperatures we've been having this past year or so.
Great choice though San, that's the one that started me off so watch out! ;O)))

22 Feb, 2010

 

thanx jen think i will put in a pot then just to be sure :o)) will find a space in house during winter months, do you think baz will notice lol

23 Feb, 2010

 

San of course he wont .........lol
Jen how many did you buy in the end? I am sure I can see more than one there. your house looks just like a j.....!!!

23 Feb, 2010

 

lol dotty :o))

23 Feb, 2010

 

LMSO San...just tell him "What Banana?" and cook him a nice dinner!
Well it was like this Dotty, I got talking with the owner, we talked about plants and Australia, and plants, and dogs, and plants...some time later, I remembered what it was that I was meant to be asking her.
"The plants on the reduced table were trying to jump out of their teeny pots, well root bound, and going brown at the edges. Would she like me to help her out....and take them off her hands?' lol
We struck a very good deal for the lot, my husband had his head in his hands by now, and eight babies were promptly packed into the back of the car by a very helpful assistant...Whoop, Whoop, Whoop! :o)))

lol jen, so good bargains , nice one, ive been showing baz some and he just rolls his eyes hahah

23 Feb, 2010

 

It's funny you should say that, maybe it's catching. Wonder if anyone else has noticed this affliction? Hmmm....

23 Feb, 2010

23 Feb, 2010

23 Feb, 2010
