Plants through the post!


Hywel sent me a Ginko Tree through the post, it arrived safely Hywel many thanks! The postlady (who i know quite well now, we’ll be sending christmas cards!!) was laughing again as she said ’ it says this way up and i have kept it that way since i got it, but i can’t guarantee its always been that way i have seen them in the sorting office!!!

It got Toffee excited as he thought he recognised the packing LOL! Walked off in a huff when he realised he wasn’t getting anything!
I have re potted it into a larger pot and given it a drink and it looks lovely.

In the same delivery were some Fushcias i had ordered from Ebay, they arrived well packaged too, one is ‘Tom West’ a variegated leaf one and the other is ‘Orange Crush’ have also potted them up they are keeping the Ginko company, i had to use wooden clothes pegs as labels as i can’t find mine!!!

Good blog
Had to laugh at the shot of your kitchen work top - ours looks a lot worse than that at the moment. Something tells me I'm spending just a leetle too much time on GOY, ahem.
