Nite nite all, i'm so tired I thought I was on camera thread (was flicking from that to this one, must have got dizzy)  my comment earlier prob didn't make sense 

I reported it  too fairy, its just got out of hand now.

Hope the morning brings some sunshine.

Sleep well all

Gorgeous photos Garden Girl, that silver plant is intriguing, hopefully someone will know what it is, if it looks like that all year I have to have one!  Lovely bag too, well done your sister.

 Evening all those still here.  Not been on today for 2 reasons, firstly and mainly because I have been a garden centre would you believe but with no time to look at plants!!! Secondly, because some muppet was doing my go head in and I do not want to send my time getting wound up with pathetic individuals, who it seems can now morph into other individuals.  Verdun, I support you 100%, this guy is an idiot and should really stick to the likes of FB.....playing with the children!!  I didn't want to say anything yesterday with being fairly new and thought maybe I was just over seems not!!

Anyway, the reason I came on was to report my free strawberries and geraniums have arrived tidal and I bought 4 roses from Aldi, £1.89 each.  nit sure what they will be like but not much to lose if they are rubbish and thought I would try and gain some experience of roses before spending a fortune (although I think I am still going to get an Iceberg).

Gardengirl.......the new GW mag, is that March's?  Mine hasn't arrive yet and a, I actually famous or doesn't it say it's my question??  Would be well impressed if I hit quoted LOL!!

Anyway, that's all for now.  I await responses with ignore button at the ready if necessary!!!


Haven't quite gone to bed yet!

That plant is tanacetum Haradjanii or Silver Tansy. Mine looks as though it's died with all the rain we've had and they aren't that easy to find. I used to use the leaves in miniature flower arrangements in the village show when we lived in Kent.

Gg didn't mean cos of your pics, which are really lovely.

Made a comment earlier gg, oh dear all this upset is making me paranoid about upsetting people, hope everything is ok by the morning!!

Nite nite all sweet dreams 

Tracey-Newbie it does say it is your question and it is the March issue on page 22

Thank you for the plant ID Busy-Lizzie must get one somewhere and somewhen really like it need more silver plants

Thats ok Star gaze lily - need sunshine tomorrow got to sort the pond area out in the garden

Night all

Excited, my hostas may arrive tomorrow.  Heleniums next prob in a month or so.  Where do I put everything?  It looks like all my overwintered plants and cuttings are thriving too.  I guess I will have to take up more grass.

Every year I plan to have a better garden than last year.....don't we all? effecting this year ?   Who am I kidding? 

star gaze lily

Ooooh my mag arrived today, haven't looked at it yet as working today. Will have a quick peruse 

Tracey, working in a gc, you'll be spending all your wages!! 

Orchid Lady

Lovely pics GG, I forgot to say on my last post. I really NEED some Hellebores....not just one as they get lonely on their own 

Wow....fame at last, I'm well impressed and without even trying 

I think I need some Hostas too, but don't slugs like them?

star gaze lily

Yes they love hostas Tracey, broken eggshells around the plant help. But last year I put mine in tubs with a copper strip round the pot. They didn't go near them. Love hostas 

Orchid Lady

I'm sooooooo looking forward to the GC trip tomorrow, going to bed in a minute then morning will come quicker! 

Has anyone ever bought plants from Aldi (ref my roses comment)? I was tempted to buy more but thought I would see how these go first.

See you all in the morning, I will be here.....not getting scared off again!!!!

star gaze lily

Your famous Tracey! 

Don't be put off by one person Tracey, he's picked on most of us one way or another. Was going to pm you the other day but the're not working on here at the mo (again lol) will have to get my old laptop out, they work on there .

Sorry haven't bought anything from Aldi. 

Orchid Lady

Thanks Lily.  I didn't have time to look round the GC as I was in the food hall all day, it is an expensive one anyway and to be honest I would rather support my little local one with my garden purchases 

I've looked up the roses I bought and all but one are available from DA roses (Pascali, Lover's meeting, Golden Jubilee and Blessings).

Right, off to bed.  Night all....sweet 'spring' dreams  


I've just come home from a night out and thought I must have had too much to drink, what the heck has happened ? See you all tomoz'.



i have a sort of hedge of roses from aldi and they have been fine


Bought from lidl couple of times.. Including a potentilla that is now a superb plant so worth it. 

Hellebores are coming into the garden centres now.....get in early for best ones.  Look out for the doubles too.  Many of them are beautiful plants.  Hostas aren't too easy to protect from slugs etc but I manage to gow them pretty well.  As already said copper tape and pipe is very effective plus an occasional night visit with a torch and bucket of salt water.  Hostas are worth a bit of effort

Well done Swiss sue.  Better late than never but you sound a nice lady who gave Brumbull the benefit of the doubt

Goodnight Sue 

Orchid Lady

Thanks Verdun, I think that's what put me off, I'm afraid I'm far too squeamish to,go out with a torch and bucket.....urghhhhhhhh 

Thanks Little Ann, may go and buy some more tomorrow 

KEF....some muppet who doesn't even know who he is, but we aren't worrying about him now, Verdun has his card marked and if he starts again I will just use the ignore button.  He obviously got fed up talking to himself on his little thread!!!

Am definitely off to bed now. Night x

Oh dear, off to airport. Stay IT safe everyone. Good luck. Hope all ok. Good on yet Verdun. X
