Rose I am allergic to cats so it bothers me not, saying that as I went out today a ginger cat was sitting on the wall as I opened the gates, as I stepped back it had leaped onto the bin and managed to rub against me before I could react. Luckily it did not touch skin or else I would have been back in the house laying down with a wet towel over my eye's. Yes it is that bad.
G/G Those catalogues are there to ring your money out of you none of them care once the plants are on the way. They do not tell you to leave your order for the North at least two weeks later. A shady corner or greenhouse, some seed and patience and you can have a long lasting show not here today gone tomorrow and then nothing. I sow in periods of a couple of weeks, that way you can put fresh plants into the spaces left by those gone over.
