Allium problems

Some of mine don't have flower spikes yet Helen.  But plenty of time for them to get going yet. Apart from the last couple of days, its been quite a cold spring, which might hold them back a bit.

Best present this year !!

Great haul seacrows - you obviously had a car full. Have you got places for them all or is that the next challenge .  I have a tulbergia that I am very fond of .... must get it some playmates

Did you enjoy the rest of the show? Loved the look of some of the show gardens when they showed them on GW.

There s a "previous page" option, but at the moment it only appears at the bottom of the screen.

Some people are also using a temporary fix where you highlight the page URL and then edit the page number that appears at the end of the link - but that relies on you knowing, r guessing, what page you want to view.

hope that helps in the short term, and that better fixes are on the way soon

I think Fairygirl has raised this as an issue, and hopes it will be resolved next week ....fingers crossed

Are you all ready for Eurovision? We've got an entry this time. 

See original post

 I know the EU is all for expanding its borders, but Australia seems a bit extreme  Do you think we'll get visa-free travel ??

Saw the pictures of a flooded Malvern show yesterday afternoon, and couldn't quite believe it given our wall to wall sunshine.  It was obviously a mixed bag.  Hope everyone gets a nice day today
