Morning Stacey - great to see you - didn't recognise you with your new avatar ! Glad all is well and garden is thriving.  I am off to HC this Weds - will give you a preview of the "must sees".

I use an iPhone and iPad and can still get to the latest post using the green arrow to the right of the latest post list - can you see the arrow, or does it just not work??

They were in 9cm pots (delphiniums) and they recommended potting on for 4 weeks in slightly bigger pots, which i have done.  I will plant them out next weekend - a couple have flower spikes already - i should probably chop them off, but bet i won't
