A chapter of a book

You can get plants, but not often the named varieties, and perennials usually come in small pots, very young, for about £1.50. They shut for lunch, irritating! English ones are better. French GCs tend to be more expensive generally. I buy plants when I go to England.

Things you did in the garden as a kid which were extremely bad!

I'll have to put something because I want to get told of the replies and this looks as though it could be interesting, but I was horribly boringly good in the garden when I was little. All I can remember was, when I was about 5, eating all the blackberries and being sick.

Loved the whales too. I read somewhere that they are the only other animals to have a menopause and the grandmothers babysit the young whales;

Just as I arrive everyone goes. OH and I go off to the sitting room and watch TV in the evenings. We have supper there too. Computer lives in kitchen.

Great photos of the Millau Viaduct Geoff. Here's one I took last September, but we didn't go on it, only underneath it. It's huge.

Bunny, if you don't mind using biennials or short lived plants, you can buy plug plants of forget- me- nots, bellis daisies, violas, primroses etc in autumn, plant them then up they come in late spring putting colour in the garden. Oh and wallflowers - scent as well.

Hello Ben. I'm the sensible one (boring!). Bunny's bonkers but often very cheerful.

Hello all. It was a lovely sunny day today and I had to go to Bergerac for a meeting and missed most of it. But stopped at another new GC, , on the way back and bought 2 blueberry bushes and a big sack of ericacious (spelling?) compost, more strawberry plants for the new bed, woven weed supressing stuff for strawb bed, a dwarf rhododendron (I killed my other one by not realising the hole in the bottom of the pot was blocked and it got waterlogged) and a red leaved loropetalum (killed the last one because of forgetting to bring it in for winter). Oh and some pea netting for the mange tout peas that I will sow soon. This gardening lark gets expensive sometimes, have to cut back on food!

Sam, I get the plug plants from a French company called Jardin Express but there will be English companies, I think Suttons do them.
