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

Morning all

Rubbish weather here - as much as I sometimes raise my eyebrows ar fair weather gardeners, even I'm not going out in that.

Maybe a trip into town later, and some seed sowing on the kitchen table.

Still, yesterday was unexpectedly gorgeously sunny - so maybe 1/4 for a bank holiday weekend is what we will have to settle for.  And that smiley reminds me that my  came out for the first time in 2016 yesterday

Mail Order "A Lottery"?

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.

Thanks Hollie - they are really important in this garden as the deer don't eat them, so they are used profusely !! They are fast becoming my signature plant !

hibiscus luna help needed

I'd keep them somewhere sheltered - a GH might be ok for now, but will be too hot once we start getting a bit of sunshine.  Just a word of warning - I did this a few years ago - now have 4 healthy shrubs, but had to wait til last year for the first one to flower. So you'll need to be patient
