Just to add.... I grew these last year and i did pinch them out - i had sowed too early and they were getting in a right tangle inside, and i knew i shouldn't plant them outside til June.  It didn't do them any harm and they flowered well for me

It is a wonderful thing . We walked through it a few weeks before it was officially opened to traffic - i know how to treat my girls to a great day out

COYR - 2nd generation scouser here.  My Dad would be sooooo happy to see them win the title this season - although i think they play on Sunday (expecting the family get-together to have a breakaway group this year).

I remember one school project where you had to report back on your parents religion ( wouldn't happen today!).  He told me to write LiverpoolFC on the form against his name

Try and get there Jeannie - it is great now.  However, no rhodedendrons ...... Have realised Peanuts is probably talking about Savill Gardens very own punchbowl ( not the devil's one )

Mine looks like yours Matt - they seem to be one of the last to reappear

Is it the Devil's Punchbowl you are looking for Peanuts?  If it is, it is fabulous now that the A3 doesn't thunder through it any more.  Its right on my doorstep

Thanks Gardengirl - missed the start but it is repeated at 3am tonight, so will record and watch tomorrow.  So many gardening programmes at the moment

Happy mini-hols KEF and Fidget 

Too far away for me to make East Ruston, but thoroughly recommend it for those who can get there.  It is an amazing garden - been several times when staying with my Norfolk folks.
