Lamb sounds lovely WW, glad you enjoyed it.

Perhaps it was anemone Honorine Jobert, also white with yellow middles, but not the pink flush behind the petals.

It could be that the spade was faulty, not your fault!

In the 1st pic there is something that could be a Mahonia under the Stag's Horn Sumach. The Sumach has the red autumn leaves and the red flowers spikes.

Sweet Pea seedlings

Oh dear, sorry, they look very thin and spindly. Have they had enough light? If they are on the kitchen table that's not light enough. The leaves should be much nearer the bottom, then when they have a few leaves you pinch out the tips to make them bushier. Someone more expert than me will have to tell you what to do now.

I have it already, in a flower bed, spread a bit, needs controlling, but lovely.

It has absolutely tipped down since my last post, hope the garden doesn't drown.

Like all wine, but not if it's very dry. Like pasta, like most things but not fat, gristle, kidneys or egg whites.

Lost,stolen or strayed?

We'll be back in Eastbourne again pg Bev. from 11th November. I will have to go to the GC again but no plants this time, Ryan Air. If you are free we could have another meet in the café. But aren't you working again now?

Planted over 100 daffodils in the last few days in between the rain, under the plum and cherry trees on the side lawn. Think I'll get some crocus too, only had one packet.

Unfortunately, I don't have an Albert. I have a housesitter who I share with others, 2 are friends. Has caused the odd clash!

Help needed for a novice gardener

I have a complete mixture of flowers for all times of year and my garden has been full of bees and butterflies, but some flowers are better than others.

Here is a list from the RHS of flowers for bees, it has bulbs on it too. A lot of the flowers in my garden and many in my list above are on the RHS list.
