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.

Seed and Plant swap 2016

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?

I did wonder if it could be a clivia HCA. Mine is in a pot indoors and doesn't like being outside even in summer.

1. Hebe, they don't like being pruned.

2. Aquilegia and I think the bulb might be Agapanthus.

3. Dead lavender

Went to see my father in law and went to Butters at Kellett Gate. They were selling orchids for £3.00. I bought two multi stemmed phaelonopsis and one enormous Tsarene orchid = £9.00. I would have bought more if I had boot space.

I'm sure Monty did a shade garden last year on GW. You might get away with a white garden with harebell, foxglove, snowdrop, brunnera etc.

ID plants please

Could the second one be a bluebell or a spring onion? They look similar.

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.
