"I have 4 camellias that I want to get rid of. Two of them are just over 2 metres tall, and the other two maybe 1.8m. The flowers are red and dark pink.  Anybody keen on these?"

"Hi, does anyone by any chance have some pear and/or medlar scionwood to spare?  I want to try and graft them on to one of the many hawthorn trees I've got here, which apparently is possible."

HI Pete,

Thanks... Have been having a jolly o time in the garden.  Hope you guys are settling in well in your new home and gardens toooo!

I went to share my ooooby photos on a friend's FB page - via friend's private message and it seemed to take the link ok- within his message box - but when I go to click on that link to see if it works, an  ooooby page error comes up. Yet On my FB page it appears fine and the link goes to the ooooby photos.

Would love to share my ooooby album with a few folks..
