Offers  and  Requests
Offer: Avocado plant (Morchard Bishop EX17) - This was kindly given to me by a colleague who had grown it from the stone. It is not hardy so ideally needs a greenhouse to overwinter it - which I don't have. It's currently about 2 foot tall and in a large (5 litre?) pot. I have no idea whether it will ever fruit or if it needs warmer temperatures than the UK.
Offer: Pair of 6ft long cream curtains (Morchard Bishop) Withdrawn - Pair of long cream curtains, self-coloured modern flower pattern, together with a set of separate blackout linings. Size of each curtain laid flat measures 144cm/56.5 inches wide, and 183cm/6ft drop. The size would suit french doors or a narrow set of patio doors. Curtains have 3-inch heading tape. Please note these were hand-made so don't expect professional standards of sewing. Curtains are in excellent condition. Blackout linings have some minor sun discolouration on them.
