Thanks fidgetbones - I know it might sound daft, but part of me thinks if I order it in advance I'm tempting fate  and we won't make it !

On the other hand, as it's a new show it might be useful to have some idea of the layout.....

Just wondered if anyone has received their show guide yet? I am in two minds as to whether to order it in advance 

Is this Crocosmia?

I think this is the stuff that comes from bird food - someone will know the proper name !

Don't worry , we all feel overwhelmed at times.There is not really a lot more I can add at the moment, except to say that if you have a local garden centre, they can be really helpful in terms of advice re: plants etc. The cup of tea or coffee and a sit down and just breathe really does work  It really is possible to have a nice garden that doesn't involve non stop work - honest !

What is this plant?

Hi snerdley, I think  it  is a chusa palm (trachycarpus fotunei), but there are probably others on here who will know  for sure 

Daffodil bulbs

Thanks nutcutlet, that would certainly be the easiest thing to do - all I need to do now is find some spaces

My mother in law has given me a bag of 40 Daffodil bulbs that she was unable to plant last autumn. The majority of them seem firm,but I don't know whether to plant them now or leave until later in the year. If I leave them, what is the best way to store them and stop them from rotting?     

It's gonna rain!

33mm since the start of the week, everything  has perked up and I swear has grown apace. Tomorrow is forecast to be dry so I am going to make the most of it. Hope everyone is happy with the weather !
