I used to use the Readers Digest Gardening year a lot - it prompts you what to think about each month.  I also take two gardening magazines ( GW - obviously - but also the English Garden).  And these days i use this forum - never failed me yet !  Its like having a load of gardening experts at your personal beck and call 24 hours a day - LOVE it 

Really hope your house purchase goes through, and that we start seeing loads more of you

Love heleniums too - only have two varieties, but they flower for ages in my reddy/orange bit of border.  Moorheim beauty and Sahins early, for those who like particulars

Still in bed too Mrs G .  Although have been for a GH check and garden wander.  Then came back to bed, which is probably even worse.  Still, next week this forker will be back to her 6.30am posts, so might aswell enjoy whilst i can

Thanks Sue, KEF, AWB and Lizzie - i will let her tresses loose

Have you had deer nibble them Lizzie?  The nursery lady said they were one of the few shrubs they left alone.  If that is right i have many more planting options.  Last year's rabbit certainly thought it tasty

Wow - my irises aren't even in bud yet !  Your borders are looking beautiful - amazing how they change after just a few days away

(Ps Lizzie - your help is needed on the recent exochorda thread !)

Glad you are safely home fidget - hope the ducks return for their feast.  Lovely smoggy sunset here too tonight - too far away for Sheffield to cause it .... I blame Londinium
