A Brief Rant!!!
This is just to let off steam…today was the May Fair of the Village Primary School, and being a nice kind helpful person I had potted up a selection of plants for their Plant Stall. I stuck labels into every pot with name and colour and size as well as each plant’s needs. However, when I popped up there this afternoon to look at the stall, I was NOT impressed by what other people had done. Some plants had obviously only just been dug up and were wilted and quite possibly without roots! Then there were the anonymous ones. That was what REALLY annoyed me! How can you buy plants when you have no idea what they are and what they need? I was eager to buy plants to help the school – it is very small and needs every penny – so I did buy some, but only the ones I recognised or that HAD been identified. The poor lady running the plant stall was a helper roped in and put on the stall – she had no idea what was what and why should she? I hope that if you have any connection to a school as a parent, governor or teacher, you could pass on the message to plant donors. Please, please, take five minutes to mark your gifts! Thanks for reading my rant – I’ve got it off my chest now.
