Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?

Posted: 08/04/2017 at 08:56

I'll put my order in tonight (like Dove, I might sneak a few other bits in my basket too)

LilyP - have you tried leucanthemums?  They grow well for me - there's one called royal court, or old court (definitely something-court) which littlest chicklet has christened the Crazy Daisy !

Totally agree GD ....I feel like people miss out on so much by not noticing these things.  Makes every day seem hopeful somehow

Amberspy - I buy nearly all my plants online - much more choice than my local GC. I use Secret Gardening Club for bargains, but Sarah Raven, Crocus, Hayloft and specialist nurseries for particular plants.  You get 10% off the ones in my list if you are a GW subscriber, and I am very rarely disappointed with an online order

Is it the brick edging you object to Obxx, or the pale cream πŸ€”

Just back from the first bike ride of the season (I think I've said that before, but it rained, and I am definitely a fair weather cyclist).  I love these light evenings

We've been here 10 years now, and in 2 of those the annual display has been spoiled not bad odds really.  I do spend my time fretting over the forecast though

Lizzie, Joyce, my typing also takes ages toappear, and the screen jumps round too.  Had a go at trying to get it resolved (see the iPad freezing thread) but the developers can't replicate the problem, so we seem no nearer a solution. Maybe it is down to some of the adverts (that was the latest suggestion)

Morning peeps

Just been for a dawn wander round the garden.....our magnolia is positively glowing in the early light

Love it when we escape the frosts at this time of year

Sarah Raven catalogue just arrived with a free P&P code for orders before 23rd April......she doesn't have helenium Waltraut, but does have moorheim beauty for £4.95 .... Would that fit the bill?
