Morning - glad you enjoyed Harrogate Liri a nice gladioli (or should that be gladiolus) here 

I spent two years at school in America (when I was 11 and 12).  I learned nothing but American history and geography.  But I did come home rather good at Math (sic).

Taking littlest chicklet up to Birmingham today.  All the bags are packed.  Concentrating very very hard on what a wonderful time she is going to have, and how proud we are.  β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈ

Definitely would GD - but like you, am running out of vertical space

Not a specialist - I bought it for the last garden -  but GCs often only stock it in the spring when it is in flower.  I think its normally sold in amongst the alpine plants, but I could be wrong 

Happy hunting

Clematis plug plants

I grew the clematis plugs from Mr Evison a few years ago GD - they have done better than any other clematis I have ever had - seemed to establish much better than the larger plants I bought.  So not only a bargain, but better results ....whats not to like

Happy Birthday Lizzie - have fun

DID podcasts are one of my holiday favourites too Dacha - try to find Noel Gallaghers .....its great 

Today I will wander round the garden looking - getting to the stage when I don't see it in the light on a weekday .  And helping littlest Chicklet with her packing.  Sisters are doing Dad visiting this weekend - they think he'll be out (into a convalescence place) on Monday, which sounds good progress.
