Another good guy - Pine Cottage Plants in Devon - beautiful (huge) agapanthus arrived yesterday, as promised, and they even threw in a little baby one in a pot for good measure, which was a lovely surprise

Mine arrived a few weeks ago - no scabious, penstemmon instead...... No campanula, aubretia instead.  However, all are growing away well - just about to graduate to 9cm pots

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

HELLO FORKERS!

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
