I had 2 but lost them both in a fairly cold winter.  I am in the South East, so should be fairly mild.  Maybe I should try again and hope they get established before our next Arctic freeze comes through.  I do love their scent

Wonderful sight John  How I want a box like that My loorolls will be planted with sweetpea seeds this weekend, and tied round in a bunch with some garden twine to stop them falling over ....a box is a much more elegant solution.

on the horse muck, we have spent the last few weekends filling the back of our very old landrover with the stuff.  On the last trip it was getting dark, and we were due out, so left a full load in the back.  On the Tuesday it snowed, and OH had to use said Landrover to get to work was only when he got in that he remembered it still had a full load.  So he had to do some shovelling before he set off (and had to change his clothes again too).  But my roses will be ace this year

Fidget - so glad that the JB Warren and the Hand&heart are still there.  If all goes well and Chicklet gets there (she wants to do Psychology) then I will look harder for them next time.

and Pdoc - good chance we were both at the Irish Centre at the same time ...Thursday nights, upstairs bar??  Drove past it on Weds and got unbelievably excited  that it was still there, looking as earthy as it ever did. Runny - might have bumped into your son too.  I've still got friends from those days too ......fantastic times
