Hello nice peeps,

Many people take pets so I wonder if anyone takes real plants of flowers away with them when they go on their adventures? I think they would be a cause of condensation but if your MH is well ventilated wouldn't it be OK for a short time away?

As a soon to be full timer I'd like nothing more than a few little flowers to brighten the place up. So, good idea or not?

Shane.....

I have taken plants with me but in honesty they are a flippin' nuisance as they constantly have to be wedged when on the move and moved when parked up to get to the hob/table/bed. I love flowers and plants but we have finally compromised with a silk flower to match the MH.

When it comes to animals in the van, can anyone beat the 6 point-of-lay hens we brought home from Worcestershire to Devon with us???

Beat them with a stick you mean? I'll beat them for you. 8)

MrsW, did your plants cause a lot of condensation/dampness?

Yes, a lot of dampness (when they fell over) but otherwise no, we tend to sleep with a window or a vent open at night, so not normally a problem!

Saw a smallish campervan with what appeared to be a small hanging basket & trailing ivy suspended somehow inside its side window in Norwich on Saturday. Very pretty!

We've had pots of plants outside our van (even our tent a few years back!) on campsites, but these were plants we'd accumulated on garden visits during our travels. Have been tempted to take little pots of herbs, but have restrained ourselves so far - but those of you with large vans could emulate the narrow boats & have a whole garden aboard!!

Real plants and flowers

The mrs brings lettuce/rocket growing in a pot and puts it outside when we pitch up.
She also brings tumbling tomato bush in a pot, so we have fresh tomatoes whenever we want them.

Flowers

Hi

I have a few white lilies in here every now and again. No prob with condensation, but do remember to stow the vase somewhere safe when travelling - especially if it is full of water and flowers!

Hmmmmm, I don't have real plants in the house let alone the MH. We're now away so much that it's just to much looking after them. I have to admit though to falsies both in the house and conservatory (grasses rather than flowers) and they look fab and do fool most people. Far easier in my book :D

Not got enough room in the MH for plants, real or not.
