Ask your chap if he knows of anywhere you can get hold of some going cheap, explaining that you've been the victim of a despicable thief - you never know, he might come across some exactly like the ones you had that someone doesn't want any more

Yes, it was pink - if you click on the BBC Gardeners World programme link here http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01ytkmt and then click on the Episode 9 you'll find it towards the end of the recording

Some people just think that if someone has a lot of something they won't miss a few and they help themselves   They regard it as 'perks' .  Totally wrong and totally dishonest of course, but they were brought up like it and you'll never change them 'cos they're not bright enough to take on new concepts 

Ask your suspect to keep his eyes open for the thief and tell him you, your neighbours and the police are doing the same.

And yes, mark them!!! 

Aquilegia photo album

I've just looked online at A. alpinas - Shoot describes them just as the ones I've got - over half a metre tall  http://www.shootgardening.co.uk/plant/aquilegia-alpina 

whereas GW says they're compact and suitable for rockeries  http://www.gardenersworld.com/plants/aquilegia-alpina/3237.html 

What do you think?

I'm a girl a couple of years ahead of you, and while I used to be as strong as an ox and could pitch a bale and wrangle a ram, something seems to have happened over the past few years 

I had such plans for the garden when I moved here and retired ............. then a series of injuries (back and knee) got in the way 

However, I am learning not to charge at things like a bull in  a china shop - I am doing what I used to have to do at work, and prioritise - I plan my campaign and work out what must be done now and what can wait - and I sit on the garden benches a lot and look at it all and enjoy it 

 

HELLO FORKERS!
