the books were useful to me but I'm trying to clear out stuff & I haven't looked at them in a while. I like them just to get ideas

Whizzz Fri 31-Aug-07 11:13:23

Tigana - P&P for those 2 would be £4.25. Happy to send them for £7 in total if they are of use to you

chhers - I've mailed you

Whizz, I'd be interested in the gardening year book but I need it to be very simple, very clear instructions grin. Is that what it's like or does it go into soil ph etc?

Whizzz Fri 31-Aug-07 12:41:39

rosmerta - flicking through it, there is a chapter for each month - it tells you want can be planted in that month, what flowers etc, it also has a bit about shrubs & lots of pics showing you what the flowers look like. There isn't much on basic gardening techniques & I can't see anything about testing your soil pH grin

Just weighed it & it would be £1.92 to send 2nd class - call it £4 if you're interested

rosmerta Fri 31-Aug-07 14:37:40

Hi Whizz, thanks! Yes I would be interested, paypal ok?

Whizzz Fri 31-Aug-07 15:05:18
