Worked beautifully, Christine 28.  Lovely show from your begonias.

Serendipity gave it the ideal support in my garden when I put it under my red and purple fuchsia - they complement each other beautifully.

Just checked all details.  I do seem to have Polish Spirit.

Chicky, I looked on the site you recommended and the flowers are too small for Liisu. Will check Polish Spirit out tomorrow.  My plant has lots of buds on ready to burst open.  It is very floriferous.

Oh, that was a lovely day in Dorset.  I was so impressed with the way the council had managed the verges and roundabouts in the county and the lovely thatched cottages and then these two lovely gardens.  Bennetts Water Gardens were so beautiful and the Abbotsbury Subtropical too.  I will post some of my pictures.

Wow, now was that not a lovely present to leave me in my potager?  It does have loads of flowers on it still in bud so, if the weather staysbenign the fuchsia is going to be a riot of red and purple for a good few week's yet.

Thank you, waterbutts.  That looks like it.  I shall now label it.  It is very pretty.
