What a lovely container Fidget (Few pages back now, but still in my memory).

Cinderella was great - nothing wrong with a bit of schmaltzy feel good.

Had a great afternoon yesterday, avoiding the gales and the rain in the GH.  Lots of rooted cuttings potted up (including several Beau Sedums), and lots of seedlings pricked out (including KEF delphiniums), and some more seeds sown (including Fairy Nasturtiums).  Felt like my Forker Friends were all in there with me having a party

I have a white one, and a leonard messel, but have never noticed a scent from either. Very pretty though

Sounds lovely primrose.  I have just got some from Sarah Raven called Espresso - meant to be very dark red.

Just on my way out to do it David .....hope I haven't lost too many days.  Although this year I am only going for the cherry varieties, so they won't be big anyway.  Thanks for the timely reminder though

I would start them in a pot - that way you can replant them with minimum disturbance (not sure they would like moving from a raised bed.  What colour have you gone for ??  (I am a secret glad enthusiast - Dame Edma gave them a very bad name)

Only just surfaced .  Will be spending the afternoon in the GH, pricking out some of my seedlings.  One of my favourite jobs when the rain is pattering down outside.  Then cinema tonight - girls want to see the new Cinderella.  See you all later (probably MUCH later).
