Feedback from BBC about GW being cancelled

Posted: 27/04/2016 at 22:09

I don't know why the BBC doesn't show the sport on BBC 4 and we can have GW every Friday on 2. They did have one hour programmes a few years ago during the summer months, which was much better.

Plant suggestions please

How about a camellia to match the one you already have.

Probably because of the comment you made about selling loads Kim a few pages back, made Granma think that you did.

34. clematis

35. alchemilla mollis

36. I'm thinking lily of the valley. How long are the leaves?

37. foxglove

38. purple toadflax

39. Looks like you've got harebell mixed in with dafodil bulbs. Not sure what the other plant is though.

As a country we still owe them hundreds of millions pounds from WW1. So maybe to them it justifies their participation. Treating Saudi Arabia as they do is because the US wants oil.

Fidget, I've got mollis and spinosus, but spinosus doesn't seed at mine unfortunately (or not).

Dove please pm me and I will send off.

I remember going there when visiting the in laws who were caravanning in Woodbridge. All their plants were good, so anything. I have acanthus seeds if you want Dove.

My seeds are not doing very well at all. The only ones that have managed to germinate so far are aquilegia. I will have to resow and use the now vacant windowsill.


Liriodendron, if they are still available could I possibly try some Annona please?

A Grass, but which one?

I've had this in my front garden for a while but don't know which type it is. It might be a stip but its not Gigantea or Tenuissima.

Bargain Buy of 2015

What has been your best buy? Mine was a flaming katy for £1.00 and a slipper orchid £9.99. Never seen one 'in the flesh' before so hope I can keep it going.

Shrub ID

This has been growing in our hawthorn hedge and this year decided to be 12ft tall with read berries. I thought it migh be a pyracantha but not sure which one as there are no thorns.

Mystery plant at the bottom of my garden. I've never seen this before and it isn't something I planted.
