Talkback: Christmas list: gardening gifts

That's what I'd like, rather than a critique of your post.


  • i once gave my dad a ball of string for christmas. I was four and convinced that's what he wanted. Not sure I got that quite right.
  • last year I got a ball of twine on a spindle and a pair of scissors a stainless steel trowel and fork, christmas heaven!!!!!!
  • When the days are cold and stormy, I just get out my garden planters and create - either great arrangements for the house or wonderful containers for those Christmas towels and soaps in the bathroom.
  • Christmas pressies this year are wellies for daughter and son-in-law with thick socks so I can have mine back, Dad some pruning tools as he's mislaid his thats through his old age, I want some new buckets to keep all the foliage that I cut for my class of ladies that I teach in my workshops as I have so much that I run out of them and now have to use the dustbin.
  • I have a giant poppy out for a month now and its in full bloom, is that normal. I live outside Torbay and we have had frosts.
  • I would love an old fashioned wire hoe but cannot seem to get hold of one these days - if anyone has any ideas where I could buy one I would be very grateful.
  • Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.... nice socks! Cashmere too. I wonder if we could be related.
  • I rather doubt it, Ms Sock, I fear that the large hole on the underside of the left toe precludes such elevated kinship.
  • I got 3 great gardening prezzies this christmas -1, brother label printer -2, welly warmers -3, burts bees farmers friend hand salve I'm getting quite a collection of burts bees and I must say its better than any thing else I've tried and I have tried loads.All theese prezzies were from my lovely other half.Happy gardening to all for 2009.
