I would have sent you them in a small plastic resealable bag, so maybe not me after all.

Who are they???

Or geraniums that form hummocks. Some come with scented leaves.

I've got a short pair of wellies like Sarah Raven used to be seen wearing on GW. They are lined and have lasted 3 years so far. Unfortunately she isn't stocking them anymore, but Amazon are. Look for Ilse Jacobsen wellies.


Mohave Pyracantha (Firethorn)

There a couple of front gardens near me that have it as a hedge, and it looks very effective as there are two different coloured berries (red and orange) in big clumps dotted through the greenery. Very effective.

Dopey question for the day...

I thought violet, and if it is the flowers will be purple.

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.
