What adorable photos of mini Wonky and KEF

Both the GCs near work have been out of seed compost all season - is there a national shortage or summat?  Managed to find some at our local one though.  Good job, as I needed it for the 72 perennial plugs and 8 pots of cosmos I have just got started.  Running out of inside space - GH will need to be brought into service soon.

We went to Venice for our 10th wedding anniversary too Lizzie - and my Mum and Dad looked after the Chicklets ......had a wonderful time .....happy memories of moonlight bellinis, listening to clarinet solos in st Marks Square

I can also vouch for Taylors - have used them half a dozen times and plants have always been superb quality.

Once they sent the wrong variety (bad handwriting meant Mary Rose got mixed up with Margorie - you have to write it in curly script to see why) - but they immediately sent a replacement with no charge, and let me keep Margorie, who is now flourishing, to boot Top firm

I normally do mine mid April - still the possibility of frosts around then, but not normally bad ones.
