The Jilly-Lilly is born!!!!!!


Me with the Jilly Lilly!Hi everyone, I just had to blog regarding the competition that it currently happening between all the presenters.

Thompson and Morgan have challenged us to a Lilly growing competition and the winner get's the flower maned after them!

Now I'm not biased in any way shape or form but being the only presenter with a name that rhymes with Lilly I have to be in with a shot don't I ?

So all I have to do is follow the instructions and let nature do it's wonderful stuff.

My bulbs have already survived the grubby mitts of Alison Young (my roomy) who deliberately spluttered all over them in an attempt to damage there potential, before locking her own bulbs in her wardrobe and hiding the key! Then just as they were beginning to sprout my son ( who has just got an eight foot goal for his birthday) booted an amazing kick from one end of the garden to the other and landed on top of them. Safe to say the soon to be Jilly-Lilly is thankfully rather robust!

The flowers are being judged at the end of July, so being quite a competitive person I have decided to keep my little darlings under wraps until the grand unveiling but I can tell you they are looking might fine so it's definitely game on!

Before I go I just wanted to let you know about the amazing Dyson Today's Special Value That's coming up. Now I've have always been an upright kind of girl but I am testing  a Dyson cylinder out at the moment. The difference the ball cylinder technology makes is incredible, such an innovative vacuum cleaner, this Dyson makes it so much easier to clean as the machine just snakes around following you wherever you go!

It goes on sale at the Today's Special Value Price on the 13th of July!
I wonder how much my lilies will have grown by then????

Take Care

    Hi Jilly
    How exciting I hope your Lilly wins but I’m sure the other presenters will give you a run for your money. Its funny how people’s competitive side comes out? My daughter is a structural engineer and they are presently having a sunflower competition to see who can grow the tallest sunflower. Now she is in an office full of men and she is the only girl but the guys are so competitive, grown men arguing that someone has touched their sunflower she said its so funny. So I’m sure you will have good fun with your fellow presenters. I’m rubbish at growing anything but I have to say I’m presently growing strawberry’s and I’m quite surprised how well they are doing. (time will tell) So go Jilly with her Jilly-Lilly and I think if you win Richard Jackson should name one of the Lilly plants after you so we can all purchase the Jilly-Lilly plant.
    Good Luck and will be watching to find out who wins.
