Morning all /afties Pat - good that you got outside for a while  

Hope you're better soon Clari, keep tucked up. It's rubbish when you get something that should make you feel better and it doesn't...

Nice to see you PPam - your description almost makes me think summer might come soon. We have resident swallows where I work so I must take note of when they appear for Dove's thread. I expect it'll be a few weeks yet  

Am I the only person who's daffodils and narcissus aren't even flowering yet

She's been reported Kitty. It's not acceptable. The mods will deal with it

Thats a good suggestion Invicta. 

To be honest, all sorts of things would work well in that planter Andy - succulents, crocus,  pansies,violas. Annuals like petunias or pelargoniums for sun,  native primulas for a shady spot. Loads of options.

Oh Dove, that's hard to deal with. Thinking of you all x

Panda - you'd best get some rest then..... 

Help with plant names

First one does look like  a Camellia, and I'd agree with the next two- Euonymous and Fatsia, but is the last one a Trachycarpus?

Buying plants on the spur of f the moment

It can go in a big pot with some canes or an obelisk Steve...that's what you were planning all along isn't it?....

I never impulse buy....

You'd always be struggling with something like a clematis in a container of that depth Sheps. Sweet peas will be fine.

If you want a clematis, get a decent sized pot to give it a good chance

chicky - that's a bit worrrying to say the least. At least it's now been addressed, but that's small comfort when nobody's thought that might be the reason.  

You've every right to be angry never mind tired. Stress you didn't need.

Love to all of you xxx

Had a good walk - since we lost a little Corbett this week, I did a little Corbett  

Good weather, cloud was high and even a little bit of sun. Somewhat better than the last time I was there when the snow forced me to go back in case I got stuck in the glen  

Think you've all been quite chatty so I'll have a quick look round while I wait for my dinner. 

Best plants for MICRO pond?

I have to agree with Hosta and pansyface. You seem to have a decent amount of room there to make something a good bit bigger Hefty. How about getting some liner and digging out a bigger hole with a bit more depth? That will give you more scope for planting and offer a much better area for wildlife in general.
