    I'm in! Though as you have already seen I have a talent for killing plants!
    I thought I'd killed a plant Captain Jack gave me last year when he brought some spare plants in to the office.

    But I kept it and it's now start to sprout leaves again! I'm going to look after it better this year

    Oh, hooray! :lol: You don't have to keep it if you don't like it. It's actually a cutting of a deciduous elderberry tree, which is why the leaves will have fallen off. You can cut it back each year to keep it small, or let it grow. It's quite indestructible!

    GOOSEBERRY FOOLS EVERYONE!

    I would love this to be true, but it is indeed April 1st. Although, I didn't expect so many people to up for it. Maybe we should have a Gardening Forum after all! I'd love to chat about plants all day.

    When I lived at home (2 houses ago) we used to grow loads of food. We had potatoes, runner beans, strawberries, herbs and the neighbours grow lettuce that we traded. It was great. I would love to grow basil but as I'm living in student halls for the foreseeable future and my warden kitchen is in the basement I don't know where I would grow it.

    Edit: :cry2: but I like plants.
