Gardengirl, I can probably sort you out a few plants at end of season, so long as you are not in a hurry. What sort of thing are you looking for?  Tall, spiky. low maintenance?


Thank you Fidgetbones that is so kind, I am not in a hurry, any of the above but definately low maintenance

I will PM you my address for later on when you are ready

I think you mean the Euphorbia griffithii  fireglow, diddy. I just dug a load out. I never get seed off this. You can have a chunk of root when it dies down. It does tend to spread though. The leaves turn red in Autumn.


Can I be cheeky and ask for a bit would look good in the train station garden please

Do you like any of my seeds?

Evening all

Been busy digging today more in front garden, cleared the weeds, levelled the garden and then started planing my design out using my empty plastic pots amazing when they come in handy as to what size the plants are I am planting there with out getting the plants in the way of the hard landscaping, managed to get some of the design done but think will take a few days to do most of it, will have pics when mostly complete

Saw the varigated miscanthus on Beechgrove gardens today looks really nice
