Why ignore that photo, David? It's beautiful.

Lovely, Wendy.

There are pretty wild flowers where you are, Dacha, but I feel sorry for the poor chap whose car is stuck.

An invasion of you forum lot's privacy...

Hello Nanny Beach. Have you seen the chat thread? Hello Forkers. http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/hello-forkers/147687-2176.html  You would be welcome there if you fancy a chat.

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all. I have friends coming for lunch today. Must pick some raspberries.

winter pansies which species?

Nanny, I don't know about all that as I live in France. Look at their website, I posted the English one. I use the French one and I pay in euros. Plants arrive quickly in good condition the week that they say they will come. They gave me a free tray of 35 "Cool Wave" last autumn. They did OK but I thought the colours were a bit wishy washy, mostly pale yellow and cream. 

For Sweet Peas, Eagle seeds are probably best (they exhibit at Chelsea) and I have found Kings seeds good too.

Large nurseries in Kent / East Sussex

I've been to several of those in the second list. I live in France and have family in Eastbourne and East Sussex, but it's a bit of a drive from London.

Paradise Park in Newhaven is big and has a huge selection of seeds. It has a big selection of clematis and climbers, also perennials. In fact mostly what you'd expect from a big garden Centre. I love places like Merriments and Marchants Hardy Plants, but they are more for perennials. They both have lovely gardens open to the Public, worth a visit for that.

Hello DD. I'm feeling a bit guilty as I think I told you about the Garden Open Day scheme in the first place.

I had problems with Chrome too and use Internet Explorer without problems, perhaps it's a Dordogne thing!

I bet most people who look round the gardens don't know what's a plant and what's a weed anyway! When another friend opened her garden and people asked her what plants they were and she had forgotten the names she made up names!

This is their website  https://www.jardinexpress.fr/75/73/first-visit-on-our-site.html I hadn't realised they sell to England as well as France. I use them for summer bedding plug plants too. But I think there are several companies that sell on line in England.

They were called "Ultima Radiance", a small flowered pansy. I get them from a French firm that sells online plug plants, "Jardin Express".

It's a beautiful rose, Dacha. Is it perfumed? Most roses have names. I think all cultivated and bred by man ones do.

Lovely evening here, still sunny. Going to have stuffed courgettes (picked 7 today and yesterday).

I know people who have had their cataracts operated on and say it's brilliant.

Hope your cold hurries up and gets better Yvie. How horrid of it to come in summer.

Done lots of dead heading.

We've been eating lots of raspberries, really good crop this year.
