I grew some hedychiums from seed a few years ago. They flowered in the  third year. I only use plastic pots for them now, because I couldnt get them out of the terracotta.  I meant what are you doing with all the Hostas?

I think that it's your garden, and if you want to grow flowers instead of veg, that's your prerogative. In a small garden , I think Potatoes are a waste of valuable space.

Ive never had any problems with Apple. The laptop I'm using is ten years old, and apart from increasing memory which we have paid for, I can't think of anything that Apple keep wanting you to pay extra for. I find Apple products much more user friendly and intuitive.

Where aee you going Lilly?

Somewhere warm I hope. Hubby is in the shetlands. He says its very bleak, no trees at all, a few sheep, and no flowers, not even a snowdrop.
