Looks good but needed a proof reader. They have perfumed Daphne's

I'm up for a trip





I would invite David K, but it's a long way for his little motorbike to travel with that load

Do you get a monthly email about it?  Can you access it via that?

So glad your flat move is working out right for you eventually Wonky - I know how much you'll enjoy your garden this summer now that you can walk straight out of your door into the sunshine

A cream camellia sounds enchanting

It's a high-energy food - we're girding our loins for spring  ... baking also gives gardeners something useful to do in wet weather

My only proviso with Lyn's advice would be if it's a standard - if so don't cut it back to two inches from the soil!!!


An idiot who thought he knew best nipped the tops out of some special fuchsia cuttings I was growing for standards - that was nearly 40 years ago and I've still not forgiven him

Plastic boards

Probably cheaper if you can get them second hand or from a skip - otherwise I'd stick to scaffold boards or similar.

I've not found a problem - I've sent a message to the GW Office and I'm sure they'll get back to you tomorrow.

While we were eating cake in the café on the Snowdrop Walk this week, we talked about arranging an expedition to see bluebells.

We talked about various venues and I promised to do a bit of research ... we mentioned Blickling Hall ... it seems that there are lovely bluebell woods on the estate and of course there are lovely gardens, the house itself and several eateries). 

We won't be able to set a date yet as so much will depend on the weather between now and then, but what do you think?

We all need a bit of cheering up
