Haven't a clue what Edd is talking about and I'm certainly not going to try salt in my coffee!

Garden centre recommendations

Posted: 24/11/2015 at 22:48

When we go to England and stay in Eastbourne (DIL and grandchildren) we go to Paradise Park in Newhaven, lots of clematis choice. But I really liked a little nursery with a garden to visit called "Marchants Hardy Plants". I also like Merriments Gardens which also have a garden centre and nursery attached.

Now we are buying a cottage in Norfolk and I look forward to exploring garden centres there and especially Peter Beales "Classic Roses".

How funny, I've read Runnybeak's post before.

So glad your new job is going well Panda.

Edd, could that be the sort of jeans button that you bash in with a hammer, or have I got the wrong end of the stick?

Enjoyed the pottery throw down programme.

Thanks Verdun. Mine was about 6', but planted in the wrong place as I hadn't realised how tall it would get.

He's so cute and I'm glad he doesn't look thin.

Verdun's been on the Salvia thread, Gertie. Plants have always been his first love, probably more than chat.

I had Wendy's Wish last year, loved it, preferred it to Amistad, neater habit. But I lost it in the winter  Wish I had taken cuttings. But I bought 6 quite cheaply as plug plants so hoping to do the same again.

Hannah is Spanish, her ancestors probably lived in the mountains, living on scrub and cold winds!

Off to sew 2 buttons on son's trousers.

I seem to have quite a lot of worms, especially when the weather is wet, but the rotovator is much better at getting the muck in and the tilth fine. I know some people on this forum are against them, but I have a very big garden and need all the help I can get.
