Have received reasonable little plug plants from Sarah Raven, though the ammi major (?) was very etiolated. Generally speaking am not a fan of this nursery; I was once invited to hear her speak for 2 hours at a cost of £32!!! a couple of years ago. My response was 'I would pay that to hear an International Opera Singer, not a young florist!'

What veg are you growing this year?

Oooh, I forgot the Figs, for the first year I may have more than one fig, I have followed advice on this forum (possibly Dove) and though I have not cleared the pot of variagated ivy and a form of perennual alisom, I have been feeding it and this has paid off; I may be buying 3 slices of Parma Ham to have with figs this year!

Mike, it is so lovely to hear from you again; hope you are feeling better.

I have always thought that lawns are best left to men, they seem to care about them passionately, I only have a tiny one and it is the most neglected area of my garden. I simply can't get very enthusiastic about a large area of green: flowers and veg just seem so much more interesting

Dove, thank you for posting those lovely pics. Loved the flowery top worn by that strange woman.

If you are meeting up with BB in mid Lincs at any time, I could make that

A keen lawn man I know said that his life changed when he got one of those devices that distribute the lawn feed mechanically; it is so much more accurate
