Anyone remember Spangles? I was going to add Fry's chocolate cream but Fishy beat me to it. Loved Opal Fruit, Refreshers, pips and cola cubes.

In secondary school, one of the english teachers who had her hair in a massive bun at the back of her head, nodded abit too hard, and the complete bun shot off the back of her head and onto the floor.

No my white ones didn't appear again either. They must need a bit of cossetting.

There are a lot more flower spikes this time Nut. I might have a little dig to find out if there are more bulbs or not.

They don't appear to multiply at all Nut. I am always hopeful that one day they might decide they like their location and spread.

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.
