T'bird - I really enjoyed Beck when I saw it before - last year I think  

Glad you enjoyed the prog. It was a repeat but I hadn't seen that one. It's a bit random sometimes 

That particular poster has 'previous'....

Not seen that photography prog. You should get your OH to do a few pix and put them on the camera thread  

I need to feed my toms too. That'll do them after that. Hoping some will start to ripen soon

Has the plague of frogs left yet Verd?  

I don't remember seeing that one Steve, but I haven't recorded them all. 

I'll need to see if I can download it now!

I know what you mean about the time and trouble spent. Chalk it up to experience! 

I hope they're not just laughing, and are compensating you though

As it's in a pot Christine, just make sure it doesn't go short of water. It's easy to forget about plants when you move them out of sight. I speak from experience....

You may also need to pot it on quite quickly as they make big plants, and  need a lot of room to grow and produce flowers successfully. They don't really make good pot specimens long term, unfortunately.

I remember someone here had potted up something 'precious'and carefully nurtured it. as time went on they realised it wasn't looking the way it should. She posted a pic and it also turned out be a buttercup. 

She was very embarrassed, but we assured her that most of us had done something similar at some point. 

I do remember telling her that  it was probably the most beautiful, well cared for buttercup in the country!

Companion plants for purple echinacea?

It's all a matter of personal preference isn't it hollie? I don't like pastel colours for instance, but most people do, so it's important to know what people like in order to offer suggestions

Stachys is great for bees Norwin, so it's a good addition to a garden if the conditions are right   

Your garden looks lovely. The shadow of the tree on the path is really eye catching.
