Dove, I never did know how hellebore was spelt

Thank you Mark, but I'm basically a Londoner; I've only lived here for a few years! Did you do much gardening when you lived here?

Mark, any plant with 'heli' in the name ought to like sun as I think it may be Greek or Latin for sun. But I'm not sure about helibores?

I have no idea where Gardener's World is held, but I have used airbnb, in London; you stay in people's homes and I really enjoyed it.

Mark1963, you are a genius; no one else amongst neighbours and friends has been able to name them. They are such good value, they just keep on flowering. I assume they are annuals?

Windsong, I'm so glad that wiser heads prevailed as Datura is pretty poisonous. Your plant is lovely and I think I'll get one for the conservatory

Dove, thank you; am still not getting notifications of anything, but I believe they are trying hard to fix this issue for everyone.

Nut, I've just been out to have a look and there are; lobelia, pansies, roses, gypsophila, a perennial type of Allysum, some tall strange nameless papery flowers that I bought at a fete this summer, and probably some others lurking at the end, all in flower. I'm sure that isn't normal for this time of year.

Mark, I share your feelings about it starting to get light again!

Did I review 1500 plants in my sleep?
