Santa's gardening gifts
« on: December 27, 2017, 16:04 »
Were you norty or nice then and did Santa bring you the gardening goodies on your list?

I received a Grow Light garden - basically seed trays in a frame with a full spectrum light.  A very nifty pop up net tunnel for the plot for brassica growing.  A lethal looking Japanese hand hoe for weeding - lethal to my fingers or the weeds is yet to be determined  :unsure: and a very pretty tin of poppy seeds embedded in clay and compost balls that you just scatter about where you want flowers.  The clay absorbs water, breaks down and makes a little seed bed for them. 

Oh and lots of hand cream  ???  Looks at state of hands and nails - OK fair enough  :lol:

Funny about the handcream... I got my fair share too  :lol: :lol:

I got two dark green towels to use at the plot. but nothing as grand as your grow-pod thingy.

Mine were mainly kitchen things, like a massive stick blender (I feel soup coming on) a gorgeous mandolin (prep for dehydrating could be much quicker), and still to come.. tiger nuts to grow, some "Living Stone" succulent seeds and peppadew-style pepper seeds

Very happy!!!  :D :D

I got a long-handled 3 pronged cultivator, a lovely Cath Kidston oilcloth bag - to put my hand tools in so I don't keep losing them (in theory  :lol:) and  Bob Flowerdew's Organic Bible to replace the one I lost  ::)
A pretty bowl with crocus corms plus compost, and a water glass with hyacinth to grow.

Happy bunny here  :D

All I wanted for Christmas was a new wheelbarrow for the allotment - one with a solid wheel to ensure no punctures. It has arrived and been tested.

Poor old one had only scrap value.

My gardening wish list to Santa ...
