Hi Des

Here's your earlier thread about the clay bank

I've bumped it up for you.

midnight supreme rose.

Roses won't come true from seed, so even if they are seeds from a rose called Midnight Blue, they won't grow into the same plant as the parent.

It's a scam.

Could you not get a deep purple shirt Verdun?  That would look great with both

That's what I'm going to do - lovely big plant 3L pot covered in flowers (yes, it was £8.99 less 10%) but for the pleasure it'll give me it costs about the same as a bottle of wine for Saturday's supper or a small Sunday joint - and next year I'l have at least five of them if not more.

There you are Matty - now it's clickable

I'm back from the Farm Shop (via Notcutts and Waitrose)  I packed my bag and in it I put 1 lupin, 2 bottles of rosé wine, 3 cream and maroon hollyhocks .......... and loads of other stuff

Oh!  I can hear Radio 1 and the News Quiz both at the same time - one in each ear


Time to plant out runner beans?

Whereabouts are you Sara?  I'm in Norfolk and mine have been out for about 10 days and they're fine

I had to go to the farm shop again this morning ... next door to the GC ... and thought I'd just pop in to see if they'd got something with a bit of colour for the front of the front border ................... and I was seduced!!!! 


I didn't stand a chance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I've come home with a huge  West Country Lupin 'Masterpiece' as used by Chris in his Chelsea Gold garden, along with a Geum 'Totally Tangerine'.

That'll give a bit more colour to the front garden

I agree Hosta - I think it's made it all seem really accessible too - I've been on here several years now and I can never remember so many people saying 'I must go next year' as have been saying that this year.

And I thought that last nights GW from Chelsea was really good.  Much better than I expected
