Keen Digger required - Essex

Post by Simba » Fri Mar 21, 2014 5:48 pm

I just don't have the time or energy anymore......

So looking for someone prepared to do the graft in digging up a fargesia bamboo, and a Trachycarpus for me...PM me for further details and your quote please... :)

Likely to be a couple of freebies such as a Sorbus 'blood red', Eucalyptus Niphophilla, and maybe even a large Eriobotyra Japonica.

Thanks,
Kev.

Yes possibly! Hopefully someone nearer would offer their assistance.
I've driven to kent before to pick up 2 wooden chairs for my pond area and I would usually incorporate somewhere that I want to visit into the trip. After kent I came home via The Palm Centre! :D

Anyway I haven't offered yet, just testing the water so to speak! :lol: icon_thumright

No, I want to keep the bamboo and Trachycarpus, but whoever moves them can have the other plants moved to make space for them.

Put a notice up outside your house, garden help wanted.
Took two hours for someone to come forward for my neighbours, there will always be someone in need of cash to do labouring.
I used the chap a few times as well, to dig out stuff which was too much for us.
If you are paying cash they are keen...

Other than that don't those daughters of yours have any mates that need some dosh?
