Archiepem -that is so beautiful and a total surprize for this time of year - was it found in a greenhouse perhaps?

Did anyone have the same as myself - before counting began the garden was busy with birds - count started and birds hid in the bushes - count finished and they all flocked back!!?

Hello  kit7 - is it possible to post your picture on this forum by using the green tree symbol on the toolbar?  I'm sure someone on here will be able to help you then.

Fruitcake - Yes going to the allotment counts - I went there too to check that nothing had blown away and to see if any purple sprouting was sprouting (no luck there) too early.  Itching to get going on gardening now.  Took kitchen waste to the house compost bin and found something has been inside as black compost coming out of the holes at the base and a huge pile of soil erupted by the side of it.  Could be the mole back again who burrowed up inside the compost to eat the worms.  Too cold to investigate and can't do anything about it anyway.  

Back to reading my Carol Klein 'Year in a Cottage Garden' which I bought off eBay.

I purchased the same food block from Wilko today so looking forward to hanging it up tomorrow - going to be cold so hopefully the birds will like the fat.

Bilje - I got my seed potatoes last week from Wilkinsons and they were selling very quickly.

I always buy my seed potato and onion sets from them and had excellent results.  The trick is to pounce early and purchase before the heat of the shop gets to them.   Don't know about perennials but I would probably not buy.

Did they send you any instructions/guidance?

I would pot them up in flower pots, give them a drink, and if possible put in cool greenhouse/conservatory/mini greenhouse until the weather warms up a bit.  Established ones overwinter quite happily but these have probably been in a greenhouse/poly tunnel before being despatched.
