Just an update from me - plants growing away nicely - will try and meet up with the Camberley man in the next week or two to send them on their way..... Better write some labels for them first

You picked the right side Panda

Lupins & Dwarf Delphinium's

Like Rose, i keep them in pots for the first year so i can keep an eye on them.  But i would not keep them in the GH  - harden them off and then keep them outside for the summer - and bring them back in when the frosts start this autumn.

So pleased with my clematis this year

Empress, diamantina and josephine, in that order

BB - can't believe you ever had the patience to get to page 821 a page at a time - that would be me exhausted, never mind adding a post

Glad Panda enjoyed the show - pics of you returning made me smile

Lots of weeding/forgetmenot uprooting done, marigolds for the GH planted, and all toms and cucumbers in their final pots.  Really pleased with my lupins and clematis this year - its all beginning to look nice and flowery out there

Morning all

Rain has passed through here for now, but think more is on its way.  I want to get out there and uproot my forgetmenots at some stage today - plus some more potting on in the GH to do. Plenty of Chelsea still to watch and mags to read in the rainy bits.  So glad the heroes garden got the peoples award - its funny how that so often goes to a garden that didn't get a gold.

and Happy Birthday to Pdoc Saw this and thought of you .....

Happy birthday Clari - hope the steak is tasty.  Haven't been in much this week so sitting down for a chelsea-fest on tv.

Good to see pdoc back, and welcome to jc

Morning MrsG - a reveller returns.  Had a catchup with some old (from uni days .... which was a looong time ago) friends - world has now been put to rights.  Journey home was a nightmare as they had shut the motorway for overnight roadworks, so I was sent on a magical mystery diversion

I will be going for the "free" lavenders again - arrive tiny, but grow on well if you have a GH or coldframe to coax them through their first winter.

Chicklet had last exam yesterday - household has heaved temporary sigh of relief.

lots of rain to perk the garden up - but at work today anyway.  Think weekend forecast is a bit more showery
