Just had a look around and caught up ......hadn't noticed the nonsense before, but it is utterly ridiculous.  Big ((hugs)) Dove - keep on keeping on.  I'm now feeling quite cross  Since I am about to head out to the garden, secateurs in hand, that might be unfortunate 

Bought a gorgeous new japanese quince called Hot Fire at Wisley yesterday, deep deep red, I couldn't resist.  So that needs planting up too.  Not a sunny day, but no rain, so should be productive.

I would think aim to meet up about midday ?  That then gives enough time for people to travel, but still gives us a good time to look around - what do others think?

Also just noticed that Kew has been added to the list of gardens included in the GW mag 2 for 1 card offer this year.  I'll definitely have a card, so anyone who doesn't have one can come in with me for free
