Am out to a friends for dinner tonight so, along with the wine I thought I'd take a couple of plants  Not home grown by me  but the thought is there, right  

Have just visited my marvellous market and bagged 25 good plants for £28  included are 2 hydrangeas and a hot lips

Morning all 

Doesn't sound good Lizzie  Lets hope for a speedy recovery for you, and help with dinner 

Have a lovely walk Fairy, shame you needed to wear your vest  (OH helped me with that one )

Wrightt, make sure you get just what you want....... these GC plants have been developing sticky labels  Also, please take pics of new bed, would love to see it 

Wonky, can't wait to see pics  My iris are just large spikes at the moment, looking forward to the flowers though 

Catch you all later .....

Nerves are understandable, but the garden looks amazing  I'm getting in the tardis with KEF

Fairy - Chicky is right, we are taking some Guides to Dublin for 5 days  We are travelling on public transport, leaving at 6.28 am   and arriving at our hostel at 6.30 pm  I'm looking forward to it  Apart from the early start  I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, and would be happy for a medal 

Fingers crossed for the weather for tomorrow for you, and everyone 

Fidget, I've bought from the Nunns before  I bought some Roscoea (yellow & purple ones) and some helibores. My yellow ones come again but not the purple ones

Afternoon all

Been doing more bits for the Dublin trip - only 10 days away now

GC shopping got rained off yest  so the new pots are still waiting for the compost to enable me to fill them  I do have some plants for them - one will have my witch hazel, not sure on the other two  Need some more planning  Oh, and a trip to the local market  Might find some sticky plants there!

Hope you are feeling better Lizzie

Well, no spoilers from me ....... but I liked the winning garden 

I also like the sewing bee and bake off! 

The Great Chelsea Garden Design Challenge

I like it  There, I've said it 

It's not 'real gardening' but then neither is Chelsea. 

I too am enjoying Joe Swift on this more than I do on other programmes. He does seem to be interested in helping the 'designers' out too, which is nice to see 

I have agreed with the judges so far . . . my fav is the Geordie but am not sure he'll win.
