Request: Hazel nut plants (Staplegrove TA2) - Hello everyone. I am looking for two hazelnut plants please - the sort you find in hedges rather than ornamental witch hazel or twisted hazel. I dont want huge trees but rather small seedling or pieces of an established bush or hedge where it has naturally layered. They are to go into two very large pots to provide a little bit of shade and to attract a bit more wildlife into my garden. I can dig them up myself - you wouldn't even have to get your hands dirty Do you have any please? thank you so much Kindest regards Jean Request: Geranium cutting (Staplegrove TA2) - Do you have any overwintered geraniums that I could have a cutting from please? I dont really grow flowers in my garden. I prefer plants that I can eat and I grow lots and lots of vegetables. However, I have developed an odd hankering for a geranium plant to put in a pot by my garden bench where I have my cup of tea I really dont mind what colour it is or if it is upright or trailing. It doesnt need to be a full and proper plant. I can take a cutting providing your plant has a side shoot. Do you have a cutting I could have please?

Offer: Two vintage dolls (Staplegrove TA2) - Please can anyone give a home to these two vintage dollies? They were mine from the '60s. My daughter never really played with them and my grand-daughter thinks they are just OLD and wants nothing to do with them.

Request: short handled coal shovel (Staplegrove TA2) - Does anyone have a short-handled shovel they no longer need please? Im busy trying to put my garden across to being a no-dig plot and that involves putting a lot of compost and horse muck on the beds. I have managed so far with my trusty trowel but, as my friendly neighbour pointed out, the job would be so much easier and faster with a shovel. Im looking for the type that we used to shovel coal with when we all had open fires long long ago. I don't really have many time restrictions and could come and collect at almost any time to suit you thank you Jean Request: Wheel barrow (Staplegrove TA2) - Does anyone have an old wheelbarrow that they no longer use, please? Anyone who has read my previous requests will know that I am busy putting my garden across to being a no-dig plot. I'm doing really well but it is a slow process involving carrying large quantities of compost and horse muck around. A wheelbarrow would really help to speed up the process and might stop me from having to stop for a cup of tea every 5 minutes. I'm not getting any younger and my poor old back ( shoulders, arms, legs, and knees) are feeling the strain Do you have one that I could have, please? many thanks and kind regards Jean Offer: 3 glass lined Thermos flasks (Staplegrove TA2) - I have two small thermos flasks and 1 large thermos flask on offer. They are all glass-lined and work very well. I think they are all by Thermos. The large red one definitely is. One of the small ones is marked Aladin which I think is a Thermos name and the other one is identical except it isn't marked Aladin. They are quite a few years old and have been in storage for a long time so they will need a good wash. They can either all go together or I don't mind splitting them thanks Jean
Offer: Quicksilver cleaning plate (Staplegrove TA2) - This quicksilver plate is used to clean metal - usually silver. You put it in a bowl with some washing soda, put the item on top, pour boiling water over it, and the soda reacts with the aluminium plate and pulls the tarnish off the item you are cleaning. I have used it successfully with solid silver items but I have never tried it with any other type of metal. Anybody interested? kindest regards Jean
