I put my purple sensations in about 5-6 inches deep - they come up each year, but get a bit smaller each time, so i plant a few more every year to top up.

Hi Hollie - we crossed.  I have to look up half Stacey's words.  At this rate i will soon be fluent enough to communicate with my teenagers

Just finished Autumnwatch - learned lots.

Potty - your windowsills look fit for a queen - hope she appreciates it!

Stacey - pumpkins bought - am expecting to come home to creations tomorrow - not sure they willl match your works of art though.

Hope Gg and Lizzie are feeling better soon.

Panda - Bluewater with sisters this Sunday.  Might eat cake.

Verdun- good to see you

Victoria plum tree growing!

Not an expert, but we were advised to site all our fruit trees in full sun.  Try looking at the web pages of some fruit tree suppliers (we got ours from Ashridge, who have a really informative website, but there are Keepers and Brogdale too).

The only good thing about the clocks going back is that I can see out the window when I get up!  Looks nice again, but work for me.  Think I might take a little trip to GC at lunchtime - they had an offer on white foxgloves and liatris which I think I might have to take advantage of - will save me some pennies in the spring.

Enjoy the day, all gardening peeps

Lovely colours - and all self seeders you say?  Great fun being able to name them yourself - I like Rich Toffee much better than all the Japanese names that mine seem to have

Me too - but love the Kaffir lily even more.  I know from a post a few weeks back that we both invested in the same plant, so I am now impatiently waiting for my buds to open !  Til then, I'll have to keep looking back at your pic....
