    I agree GreenJim
    Their barmy botanical banter brings a ray of sunshine to another wet grey day.

    Salvia or nutmeg? ;)

      Aw, bless you lovely Rebecca… I still say it’s a turnip…

        You ARE a turnip.

    You know you’re both potty. Delightfully, beautifully, wonderfully potty in the very best spirit of true British pottiness – you’re both a new National Institution in my book. Super stuff.

    PS: If I’m ever lucky enough to stroll round a garden with you both, mine’s a mivvie please.

      You’ve made a (soon to be) brithday girl very happy :-) Had to ask around to find out what a Mivvie was – you can have two x

        You’re obviously far to young to have had mivvies – they were 1970s lollies!

    Here in Wales an employer is flying all staff to Majorca for a long weekend ( to say thanks. You take your devoted apprentice up the road to another garden and expect her to pay for ice cream, As a bare minimum you should be taking Karen on a gardening tour of the Seychelles.

      Think of the airmiles… shudder, and life at Higgledy feels like one long holiday (sans ice cream). Is that right Ben, was that what you told me to say?
