Bargain Plants

All the Polyanthus are standing up proud this morning and with plenty of flowers. Yes, I will divide them Verdun when flowering is over, thank you for your advise, it is always welcome. Thank you everyone for your replies.

Bargain Plants

I went to my local Home Bargains store this morning and on a trolley outside the shop was lots of Polyanthus, 4 plants to a pot. All of them looking very wilted and dying and being offered for 10p a pot so I bought 10 pots of them. They are now sitting in the garden still in their pots but they have been well watered. By the afternoon they are looking a lot healthier. I am so glad I rescued them as I am sure they would have been thrown away. Just can not bear to see plants destroyed when they only need a drop of water. I know, I'm, just a bit of a softy.

Just submitted my results for the Big Garden Bird Watch. It was the same for me Forester2 they seem to know that you want to count them so they hide, little devils. It is a really relaxing hour just watching them though, most enjoyable.

I love this forum, everyone is so friendly. I do post now and again, I suppose I am a dipper, I dip in and out. The knowledge of some forum members is just brilliant, they have helped me out several times with queries.

Am I a saddo?

We are also thinking of moving and my garden is just full of pots. I grow lots in pots, budlieas, roses even a silver birch. So my back garden would be left nearly empty as most of my plants I have grown from cuttings and I just couldn't leave them behind.

Good News for Mike

I sowed them at the end of February in a heated propagator in the greenhouse.

Yes, the Brussels are starting to form nicely. The variety is Evesham Special and on the packet its says "A slightly shorter variety which makes it suitable for the more exposed site". Don't know what's happened but they are definitely not short.
