I don't think it's 'taking a chance' Seed - I've visited their nursery and walked around where plants are growing - I didn't see a poor looking plant - they know their stuff - and they have a really good reputation.  I would have said they're one of the best nurseries supplying plants online in the UK. 

Why not phone them up and tell them you want a plant for a special present - they might even tie a bow on it for you

Yes, I've been thinking of Bushman - hope he can feel all the positive vibes ((hugs))

DD posted a few days ago didn't she?  She seemed ok-ish and full of plans - she spoke about getting ready for the marathon ... ((hugs)) DD if you pop in.

Wonky - make space on the bookshelves - a stack of GW and The Garden mags are in the car boot for you

Buying cyclamen coum

Posted: 25/02/2017 at 09:17

Buttercupdays - there's loads of pots of coum in Notcutts GCs at the moment, if you have any near you and you want some.  I did look at the price - can't remember what it was but it wasn't extortionate.

 Don't buy any FG - you have a PM.

Good morning all 

Hosta - have a good day :-)

it would be funny if it wasn't so worrying. I find if hard to believe that so many people in the US have been taken in by him. I worry that education systems in the west have neglected to teach about the fundamental principles of democracy as part of a general education over recent years.

How to Pronounce 'Gean' as in Wild Cherry?

Posted: 24/02/2017 at 19:24

It makes more sense to me to find out how the locals pronounce it and copy them, 'cos sure as eggs is eggs they won't change how they've always pronounced it

Now the bulb in the garage has blown - no spare in the bulb box 'cos it's a 'big' one and has been fine since we moved here nearly seven years ago. Well have to manage until I go to the wonderful hardware shop in the city.

I pruned my fig at the weekend - sap wasn't rising in Norfolk.  It's still pretty cool.
