@irina thats an impressive load!
@Satsuma I wanted to bring jasmine and honeysuckle too but I suspected I wouldn't be able to fit it in. (I was right; it wouldn't have fit in. "Estimate Volume" is a superpower of mine, works even on bike panniers.)
@irina estimate volume sounds like an extremely useful superpower to have!
Jasmine and honeysuckle both smell lovely though, so i hope you’re able to make a second trip :)
@Satsuma My other superpower is Make Food Into Pie. They go very well together 🙂
We already have 2 jasmines but the garden centre had pink and yellow ones. (Also 3 kinds of honeysuckle but I wanted the traditional yellow.)
@irina yes i can imagine!
Our honeysuckle is of the ‘clipping from one we found growing wild in the park’ variety (white and yellow) but it makes a lovely fence cover and doesnt seem to mind the shade, which is our primary criteria for choosing garden plants (our whole house is shaded by a very old and large sycamore tree, so even the sunniest bits only get a few hours of direct sunlight)
@Satsuma Sell it! (well, I think independent beekeepers are taking care of the bees and *they* sell it; but in the little souvenir shop that's just inside the entrance of the town hall)
@irina oh nice! Philly has a bee co-op for urban beekeepers that does something similar, but most of the locations are further from my house, so I usually don’t end up buying from them
