The day has dawned and it's still tipping down - but according to this it'll stop soon and just be cloudy so as long as we have sensible shoes we should be fine ...... fingers are very crossed.

Nut, can I put my name down for a persicaria cutting please?

See you all soon ...............

I've a sort of aloe/echevaria type houseplant - it's outgrown all the windowsills in this house - does anyone have wide sunny windowsills or a conservatory and would like this one?  It's in a shallow pot about 10" diameter.

Gladioli bulbs found in shed.

If they're  firm and not squishy and smelly then they have a chance.  They may not flower this year, but may grow now, die down and then grow again and flower next year. 

I'd give them a chance - what've you got to lose?

This is interesting

It looks as if a solicitor's letter  might galvanise them into action.

Plant suggestions please!

"... The contorted hazel makes an excellent container plant and can be combined with spring bulbs and hellebores in a winter-to-spring arrangement, where - with care - it will survive for many years..."
