Verdun - thought of you when the echinaceas were on - thought you might want to offer to trial some of his new varieties!

isn't it funny how some plants make you instantly think of forum peeps? Echs and hellebores are Verdun, astrantias are WW, irises are Fairy, figs are Dove, alliums are Mrs G and, of course, Stacey is Wild Swan.  And every time I whizz through a station I check out the planting because of Gardengirl.

Good Evening FORKERS

Welcome back KEF - glad you had a lovely time. My garden was a disaster zone til last weekend, but a couple of hours deadheading and cutting back soon brightened it back up - i'm sure you will find the same.

Welcome mmouse - your garden sounds lovely - pics please ! . Don't normally see me on here in the middle of the day but i am having lunch in a cafe - office beckons again soon.

Fairy - what bulbs are you planning ? My pots this year will be mix of ballade ( saw at chelsea and was smitten) and white triumphator. Plus some feb gold daffa for a bed that the deer can get too.

I don't think Stacey was saying demons are to blame WW - just that people need to dig deep to conquer their inner fears.
