I'd forgotten just how gorgeous your garden is Bev.  Its put a big smile on my face

Got to get out there today to do all the things i said i would do yesterday - before i got distracted with plant buying.

Good luck to Mr KEFs team at Wembley

When is the last time to sow tomato seeds

How many plants do you need Sarah? If its not very many you might be better buying small plants from a GC - they are not very expensive, and would get you back to where you normally are at this time of year.

Its not me, but OH, who does the hard graft, but much better to build your own - can customise the size etc.  and it makes it all your garden - rather than something you can order.  

Its difficult juggling supernoodle (got the t-shirt) - but worth it 10 years down the road ...

Fairy - great to see it all coming together - borders are looking great 

David - loads of colour - think I have to agree - spring takes some beating for optimism and excitement levels

One shopping spree per weekend is probably enough for me MrsG - but hope you and KEF have a great time.  Eat cake, buy plants and chat ...... a near perfect day

Stacey - wasn't me asking for the GW 10% discount, although OH said we should try!! Never been before - quite bowled over by the acres and acres of plants - thats some operation they have there.  And very pleased with my purchases

 

Really love that stand Panda.

Am hoping you are right - it was a mouse, not a hoe, that decapitated Dr Ruppel - but hoping he will recover

Ouch Dove - poor finger

Wonderful orchids Bill.

Didn't shop quite as much as Stacey at crocus - but am very pleased with my (odd numbers of) veronicastrum fascination, knautia macedonia, heuchara sweettea, and a dierama to try.  All things that have been on my list for a while, so not impulse buys.  Told OH that, and he wants to see my list and exactly how long it is (fears 2nd mortgage may be required).  I had to explain list is in my head, and is not really that long

He came home with grasses - karl forster and some clumpy ones.  He hasn't got a list, so they WERE impulse buys .... Tut tut
