I don't understand why some companies think it's acceptable to palm customers off with shoddy goods 

Dave's advice seems good to me jo. Hope you can get some resolution. Mentioning that you are a member of well know gardening forum might also help.

It looks a bit like an Epimedium Neil,but I'm not sure.

Hi Alan - sorry for taking so long to reply. If you're happy enough with the flavour then just keep the ones you have - perhaps they're a bit crowded though. How many do you have in pots/baskets and what sizes of pot? The more you have in a confined space, the more nutrition you need to provide. If you want bigger fruit, you might want to buy a couple of other varieties for next year so that you have enough big ones for pudding! 

PS 'Elsanta' is readily available and trouble free - decent fruits and crops around July/August. Loads of runners in autumn that you can pot on to build a good stock 

To Pee or Not to Pee – That is the Question?

Mine's at the junction of a road and a lane pansy face!

I could keep a bucket in the shed, but it's not too private either 

I thought it was only man piddle that was any good, or have I got that wrong Edd?

Morning all. Won't mention the weather here.... Hurry up and send us some sun Verd - pretty pleeease 

Hosta - remember your bad knee - he'll be able to run away from you 

Scones will do me Dove - lovely. Save a couple for when I get in from work 

Catch you all later. Have a good day

Get your feet up 

plant suggestions please

There's lots of different Euphorbias Cathy  - I think the one Verdun's mentioned is smaller so it's a case of picking a suitable one for your site. Yew can be trimmed tightly - the golden one is best for that. Verd grows it so he might be able to advise

It was my Dad's favourite piece of music chicky and we used it at his funeral. As children we were taken to see Jack Brymer playing it in the City Halls in Glasgow.  His recording is a very important part of my collection 

I've recorded Beechgrove so might catch it just now with a cuppa. Mr B is back on it - BLizzie will want to watch it I think....

W'song - what makes you think I'm not miserable....

Sounds like the driving is going well. What a difference it'll make to your life when you can get out and do stuff whenever you want. I'd hate to be without a car. 

If anyone's not seen it - on Sky Arts just now is the Garden Treasures programme about Stourhead. Been on lots of times but always nice to see. The added bonus is that they use the Mozart clarinet concerto quite a bit too
