Blue skies and sun .... and I'm off to work.  Here's hoping for some nice weather next weekend.

Having strawberries (my own) with my weetabix.

Just placed my order for Astrantia Roma and Verbascum Clementine.  This site is very bad for my bank balance

Verdun - my mock orange opened its first bud today too - beautiful.  I am very proud of my plants as they were my very first successful cuttings.  We had a philadelphus at our last house, and I was determined to bring it with us.  It has double flowers and a scent that stops you in your tracks.  Unfortunately my early success with cuttings has been followed by many dismal failures - which make these philadelphus even more special.

Did you see my post on MF about Gaillardias ?  Are you going to risk it ??

e.  - I think the original post was in March last year, so these offers will have expired by now.  However, there is normally something "free" every month.  I nearly always go for them - what have you got to lose .  Have had some really nice plants that way - but you have to be prepared to nurture them from pretty tiny plugs to bigger plants.
