Santa came again.........

Santa came again.........

As I was about to go out to plant my rose, the doorbell rang.  I subscribed to the BBC magazine "Grow your own" for 12 months, starting in January.  While it wasn't cheap, two books by Carol Klein and 10 packets of seeds were included in the offer.  I assumed that they would not deliver to ROI but I got them today.  This really is better than Christmas!

Ha ha excellent. I had been thinking of getting the same subscription. Don't know what happened, oh yea, I left it on the table thinking that Steve might have got the hint. But I dont think so. It looks great. I might still get it, but probably am too late for the offer.

That's brilliant, Mairin. I contacted Gardens Illustrated to see if their free book offer extended to Ireland but it doesn't. So, no subscription for me.

That's great news . Enjoy. It's really annoying when offers aren't available here.

What a great surprise , Grow your Own is one of the magazines I try to buy, perhaps I'll subscribe when I see the extras. Lots of winter reading to get you organised for the spring.

Nice to see you got the free seeds as most companies don't usually include the lovely offers they give to the UK... exciting!!
