Morning early birds Have a good trip Liri - hope the plumbing gets sorted.


Interesting fact for you all .....this year at Chelsea the biggest exhibit in the floral marquee is being done by Bowden Hostas (after years and years of it being the Hillier display).  They are theming it round a carriage from the Orient Express.  Said carriage lives in Battersea, about a mile away from the Chelsea showground, however there are weight restrictions on the bridges across the Thames, so to get it there they have to go south to the M25, round to the M4, and back in to London that way .....its going to take 7 hours .......something to think about when the display gets featured on the tellybox

Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?

Tootles, its in a partly sunny spot, but quite damp soil ....the dicentras like it there too.  Those are actually new ones, but I have a couple of others out of shot that are doing well there - and they take very little looking after.  They disappear completely in the summer, but then pop back up about March. Lets hope Beaujolais does the same (although that might be hoping a bit much)

Update on improvements to forum

Just catching up - sounds like good news.  Look forward to seeing the Thursday/Friday changes.  Really appreciate the efforts the team are making to get the site back on track ......as others have said, there wouldn't have been such a passionate reaction if we didn't all love this place so much.


Hope that with hindsight the uproar will be taken as a compliment
