My counties are Surrey, hampshire and sussex.

My Mum was a West Walton girl, who went to school in Wisbech, and then branched out to Cambridge - so i come from a tradition of county hoppers !!

Yellow book has a website too, with a handy feature that lets you search for gardens within an x mile radius. Handy if like me you live on the border of 3 counties !

Morning Clarington. Big fan of pilates, made a big difference to my flexibility (as measured by an annual work medical - so not just in my head!).

Not heard of that new programme - are the BBC trying to spoil us

What the heck - my purse isn't big enough - but one can dream

Hayloft are good for hellebore plugs - but you need to be prepared to wait a year or two for flowers. 

I'm sure verdun will be along soon to advise - i think ashwood nurseries are his favourite

I am very pleased that I have managed to keep my helleborus niger going all year - gave up on putting them in the ground, but these ones are in pots in the shade, and seem to be ok.

OH dug over our new veg bed, I did more weeding.  Beginning to look respectable again round here !

Take it easy Dove - I think Nut is right, the release of all that stress lets all the bugs and aches and pains in !
