Who owns the seed companies?

Just bought some seeds from W Robinson & Son online. I wanted to get some Red Orache and Mexican Tree Spinach ( inspired by the recent Garden Revival show) to try this year. They have a good list of unusual seeds.

I cant believe people would be so cruel as to use catapults or stones, I'm shocked.

I bought this climbing rose from B&Q at the end of Autumn, its called "Penny Lane".

I gave it a bit of a snip here and there and planted it, its doing very nicely. Not bad for half price!

This photo was taken a few days ago, its the only thing flowering in the garden.

Clarington, i have the same problem, except his tipple is red wine!!!! Love the program, just dont like the time it comes on as I have to rush home from work and get dogs fed and walked by 7. Glad to see the stumperies, I had a go myself with a few gnarled pieces of wood and a few ferns in my wooded area, its very effective.

though not quite as reliable, still for a quid what do you expect!!!
