Our creative adventure began in 1999, a new house and a bare plot. We were part of the NGS family for 10 years. Now we’re sitting back and relaxing!

Shoo Fly Pie is nice too Barbara 👍🏼😂😀

I’ve never heard of Shoo fly pie, Sarah, so I had to Google it! Thank goodness it’s nothing to do with this plant as some people say the seeds can be poisonous 😱 No real evidence to support this, though, so I’ll keep on growing it regardless! @sieveheadsarah 👍😂

And what a lovely year it's been, who'd have thought some snippet read in a magazine to catalogue plants would lead to such a fabulous community that has gone from virtual to reality with some great and hilarious #gtmeetups with you and @cassie26 @rachelbrooks @clipperty @icedance @travellingtracey @susieg @richard.spicer.7906 @carolgs and of course our hashtag queen @brightcolours already looking forward to more next year 😘

I am a very, very lucky lass. Thank you sooo much Barbara and lovely to see you...what a super day! Had a surge of energy and rearranged a load of pots, using the outside light so I could see as it got dark...now think I've done something to my back - hope it eases off in the morning. Ben stretched it out for me - was like torture 😂 Are the plants ready to plant out or should I wait a bit? Thank you again x x x

I would leave them just a week or so longer Claudia although they're tough plants once they get going. Brilliant day yesterday and I loved Olivia's talk! Hope your back is better soon 😘😘😘 @clipperty
