https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rabbit_rabbit_rabbit  -  but it says the origin is unknown. I was brought up in Surrey and we did the same as sg lily.

Grey and cold, forecast yesterday said sun, now it says cloud. Not inviting outside to go a prune.

Can anyone recommend a Jamine for me?

Queen Elizabeth is pink. I thought your rose was pink but the photo is a bit dark and sideways on my laptop.

And now I've looked at them enlarged - what amazing prices. Don't think anywhere in France sells them that cheap.

Morning all. Well done Lyn's Dad. Is today his actual birthday? Hope he has a happy one and I hope he is feeling better today.

-3° and frosty. Sun should be out though. Will carry on pruning this afties. Found a tray of Bellis daisies in a cold frame, must plant them out they look a bit hungry.

I use long lasting fertiliser granules, last for 6 months.

Have you tried ageratums, short bedding dahlias, diascia, French marigolds, verbena, pelargoniums? Busy-Lizzies are happiest in shade.

The only white flowered evergreen jasmine I can think of is Trachelospermum jasminoides, but it needs a sheltered spot. Having said that, mine has survived -7°. It looked a bit unhappy one cold winter and lost leaves but when spring came it grew back.
