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

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

It's my birthday

Good morning all

A little over five hours to the start of the music ........... OH has some earplugs so that he can sleep - I hate wearing earplugs - I'd better get myself down to Waitrose - I think alcohol will be the answer

Help under conifer please

Give the area a good load of farmyard manure or home-made garden compost to improve it as much as you can initially, then I'd go for one of the Lamium maculatums - 'Beacon Silver' is a good one, a spreader with silver leaves and pinky-purple flowers. 

It'll need watering until it's established, probably throughout the first summer, but once it gets going it'll spread happily.  However it's easy to remove so won't become invasive.
