Love the way you have displayed everything in layers and tiers - i must keep a look out for some old tables and stools to copy your idea

Related question - i missed cutting back my lavender last summer, but know you can do it in the spring instead - do i wait til frosts are gone for this?  Don't want to jeopardise this years flowers

The things i am growing from seed will not be ready til later in the summer.  I will be going to Hampton Court flower show - might be able to do some hooking up and exchanging somewhere like that?

Morning all - looks like you've got the sunny day you wished for Ggirl .  Glad to hear Woody is good - look forward to having him back here soon.

Enjoyed GW too - pleased to hear Monty's wild daffodils took a while to get going - i planted about 200 a while a go - loads of flowers the first year, none the second, then 2, then 5 and this year 30 - thought they didn't like our soil, but maybe they are just settling in.

Time for another cuppa, then itching to get outsided. The blue tits (i can now recognise their song) are calling me

Rudbeckia, when should it start to shoot?

Mine haven't appeared yet, so i wouldn't worry yet.  Sometimes the plants that flower later are the last to shoot

Evening all - SB poured - lets see if i am still awake when GW comes on

Operation GH move on for tomorrow - so then i will be able to start off my dahlias.

Tracey, i grow delphiniums from seed - needs a bit of patience, but seem to do much better for me than GC ones - which seem to keel over very quickly (probably Dutch grown, and can't settle in to a new culture).  I have a new lot on the go this year too. 

Archie - hope your "stuff" gets sorted soon - hugs

Alli - i've used Sarah Raven before - always been very pleased, great quality plants in good size pots and great packing.  

Dove - few pages ago now but LOVE your pond

Expecting a stinking few days at work, so might not resurface til the weekend
