A bucket in the garage is a useful receptacle. A lot more private.

If you want to buy hellebores, the best time to buy them is when they are in flower, then you get to pick exactly what you want.

The best place to buy hellebores is Ashwood nurseries in the West Midlands. They do mail order if you know what you want.

I'd say honeysuckle. Looks a lot like Lonicera telmanniana.

I feel like I'm having an open garden next week. I keep rushing round and titivating much more than usual. I don't know how you manage if you're expecting 400.  OH says there have to be paths. Paths are for walking on, not standing plants with no home on. So I'm rushing round planting things in gaps.  The house? well they're coming to a garden party aren't they? They won't look at the state of the house will they? I've vacuumed the hall carpet.

What to plant with a red scabious?

My Knautia macedonica  are melton pastels. In shade they are 5 ft high. That plant may be a lot bigger next year. Mine alsohave a habit of falling over and need support.

Dove, could you PM me your address again. I cant access all the old messages any more, so all the people I sent seeds to I have lost the addresses.

 I have put a geranium palmatum seedling in as well. it was growing in a crack by the greenhouse. It may not survive, but its pot luck.

No Dove, you acquired seeds at Barnsdale, remember?

I'll pack a small plant in the snowdrop bulbs. Expect a parcel this week. Is there somewhere  shady it can be left if you are not in?

I'll put a pic of the cephalaria on. Currently eight ft high and covered in bees.

Is it only that time?

I've put a line of washing out already. Time for coffee I think.
