Transport needed for flooded gardens

Posted: 07/06/2014 at 10:04

My plants are heading down to Somerset this Thursday - one of this weekends tasks is to label them all up.  Haven't counted yet but there should be about 50 - geums, penstemmon, lupins, dahlias, agastache, delphiniums and (lots and lots of) rudbeckias.  Will take some photos before i wave them off 

HELLO FORKERS!

Happy Anniversary Lily 

In the middle of a raging thunderstorm here - lots of flashes, lots of noise and lots of rain.  Forecast says it will have blown through here by early afternoon, so hoping i can get outside to plant up my pots then.

might have to search myself out a heliotrope.

Lizzie - hope your garden party goes well
