Confessions of the plantaholics

Posted: Yesterday at 10:32

It rained heavily sunday so I volunteered to do the shopping at Tescos.

one of my favourite planterys a short detour on the way home.

my banana plant did not survive winter hence the justification for its purchase,

a shady bed with bare patches, where Epimediums grow in spring needed two hostas,

my canna Lily was lonely, so five more purchased, one of each variety, it's so hard to make a decision when there is a choice.

two ginger Lily's to go with the cannas 

And finally two arum lilies.

spent more on plants than on food.

i am not a plantaholic.

What do you carry you hand tools around in?

I wear an old shooting vest with a multitude of pockets. When fully loaded with secateurs folding saw hand fork trowel gloves misc debris and keys it weighs a ton.

Delivery delayed until this Friday. Will be laid on a concrete slab, busy trying to clear all the junk that has been accumulated on it over the last 10 years.

What is the cutoff time for planting trees in garden?

Bare root will not come in the sizes you want.

agree with nut, but would advise that they are well staked and well watered, and if rabbits and deer about well guarded.
