Good morning all

3.2C  and persistent drizzle here    More weird dreams overnight but a good night's sleep with the exception of the new radio alarm going off at around midnight!  Think someone pressed a wrong button - I think I've sorted it now.

Hope all appointments etc go well, anyone still with lurgy has a better day, and that spring returns pronto!!!

Nasturtiums are annuals - they only last one summer.

Far better (and easier) to leave them in situ until they've been killed by the glyphosate - they'll be no trouble in the future then

And to post a picture you need to click on the green tree icon above where you type your post and follow the instructions - sometimes you have to be patient, it can take a little while for the hamster to run around in his wheel

It's this one Lily , lots of texture in square panels, but I'm making it in a slub acid green yarn - I'm really looking forward to knitting it - but I must finish the one I'm making for daugher first

Dwarf Buddleia Buzz - how easy to buy?

Posted: 02/03/2015 at 18:20

I've seen them in most of the larger garden centres, but they tend to stock them only when they're in flower - that's when they catch the customers' eyes.

If you put Buddleja Buzz plugs into google youi'll find some online stockists.

I've got quite a few 'specials' too, but I'm not swapping them

I'll swap some Flore pleno for one of those that went for £375 per bulb on ebay the other day
