Is anyone interested in a trip to Barnsdale gardens near Rutland water on Thursday 19th June?( provisional date)

The nursery there has a large variety of  hemerocallis (day lilies).

Of course there are Geoff Hamiltons gardens that he did for gardeners world.

For directions etc.

Huh,just been to Lidl. Their cheap stuff is now £2.19 for 4 cans. Hatherwood premium bitter. Thats a 10% rise by my reckoning. It works well though.

A day out for forum members to meet in a safe place, and have a good look round a garden together. There have been a couple of snowdrop walks and a trip to bressingham .pseudonyms can be used.

I advertised some all female cucumber plants on gum tree last year. You should see the warped replies I got.

Now we've just got to set a date for the trip. A middle of the week in mid June ok for everyone? Let me know by pm days you can't do. Hemerocallis should be out by then. Mine are just budding up.

Anyone got a, long range weather  forecast? We don't want a repeat of the hodsock fiasco weatherwise.

Mine prefer lidl cheapest to aldi cheapest. Though aldi is 20p dearer. Bitter rather than lager.
