Wintersong - Gt Dixter is wonderful - we went in late summer and it was amazing, the colour combinations were fabulous - and if you're at all interested in architecture, interior design/furniture etc, the house is worth a visit too

Hi Bronte - the forum has a couple of blips, one of which is an idiosyncrantic attitude to notifications - the tech team have tried to fix it but it is erratic - you may find you get a whole load of notifications at some time in the future

If they are parsnips then they need digging up as they will run to seed in their second year.  Mind you, I think it was the prizewinning garden designer Cleve West who used flowering parsnips in one of his Chelsea Gardens and the experts all thought he was using some new rare and exotic plant!  Certainly if you know any flower arrangers parsnip flowers can look really good as a cut flower.

Do feel free to come back with any queries you may have.

Hi Gardeninglily

Can we have some more pics please, as well as seeing a close-up it's good to see the whole plant so we can see how it grows.

Hi Gardens Lover - the tv programme site is here

but I'm afraid you're too late.   However, the names of the varieties are there and the seed companies, so if you want to join in the trial you can buy some.

Whatever you do I hope you enjoy your 'mini-break' - it's such a lovely area. 

The sun's already crept up here and is trying to shine - it'll be cool and damp down your way any minute
