I found it impossible to grow from seed so decided to get a small plant this year in the hope that it will seed.

Salino, I was just so impressed by the speed of delivery and the packaging, which has instantly gone to a friend who does ebay.

When I googled Miss Wilmotts Ghost (the plant I wanted) one of the sites that came up was RHS, Crocus was not there.

Edd thank you for that tip.

I am astounded that B&Q treat their plants so badly; when I asked why they did not do better this was the reply; 'the girl who looks after the plants only comes in 2 or3 days a week' So I get to buy big plants for 50p when they think they are dying - but all they need is some water

I have tried for the last half hour to access Verdun's thread about the 'good guys' but the search thingy just does not do it So here is an annexe of the good guys; RHS plants, ordered 2 or 3 working days ago, delivered this a.m. in the most PERFECT packaging possible; all cardboard and eco. I thought I was getting a 9cm pot, it was 13cm, 22cm high with 5 blooms (it was Miss Wilmotts Ghost) Very pleased. Only cavil: in the mini catalogue they sent they listed a double Delphinium that is so weird, it looks like some plastic replica flower.

OMG; will I have to be God mother to 3 or 4 baby robins? Will they need silver champagne whisks or will a Peter Rabbit porcelain bowl do for the christening? One wants to get these things right

Sorry, even blown up it registers nothing I won't try again in case it disturbs them.

 Sorry it is such a bad pic, I was standing some distance away and using a zoom (god I hate these f....g digital cameras!!!!) with my old PROPER camera with FILM I could have taken a half way decent shot of this.  It is a photo of the baby robins, taken so quickly so they would not be disturbed.
