Much better to have enthusiastic and knowledgeable gardeners than have gardening programmes presented by 'professonal presenters', who know all about 'presenting' and nothing about gardening

I have a similar spot under our biggest ash tree - Vinca Major seems to have survived this summer with very little watering, but I'm not really enthusiastic about it.  I'm going to plant some silver-leaved lamiums there next spring.

Definitely a begonia - looks like the chap on the stall was probably just 'helping out' LOL!!!

Your begonia will need to come indoors for the winter, but it'll give you lots of lovely flowers and cuttings for years to come - and was probably a bargain!

If anyone's interested I've put a link to a Fungi Foray over here near Norwich on the Wild Mushrooms thread.  It only costs £6 which includes admission to the Fairhaven Woodland and Water gardens - think that's a bargain.

If anyone living in East Anglia (or moving this way shortly ) is interested there's a Fungi Foray at Fairhaven Woodland and Water Gardens near Norwich on 12 Oct.  The price on the website is incorrect at the moment - they're getting it changed - the Fungi Foray is only £6 and that includes a whole day's admission to the gardens.

A foodie friend is moving this way and is going along so I'm going with her - for £6 a lovely day out and a good refresher course for me
