No BM - would be fatal if I worked in that nursery!
Managed to restrain myself - replaced the geraniums I bought from Jackson's with the one I actually ordered - renardii. If only the nursery had been stocking it at the time I ordered it would have saved me money Got a low growing sedum - Ruby Glow which has quite dark flowers, but not the purple stemmed one I was going for. Also a Libertia 'Goldfinger' for near the pond....which has been cleaned and filled, and was being used by two young magpies when I came home! I still have some gravel to get and organise plants but the local wildlife can get use of it now.
Damp curtain hanging? Think I'd still have to iron them Steve...
Wire mesh over the bulbs when you plant DD - easier when they're in pots. That works quite well , unless you're invaded by them. Mainly the small ones they go for - crocus etc. I've used fine plastic netting as well although I'm not bothered by mice here in this area. More of a problem when I was rural, but we only had daffs and snowdrops. Rabbits ate everything else so we stuck with those. Mice never touched the snowdrops but they probably didn't need to - plenty of other stuff for them to eat!
