Euonymus Aleuts

We had one in a large tub for about 4 years, it went into the garden about 18 months ago. It hasn't "taken off" just solid gentle growth (but we are a long way north!) I love them.

Where can I find?

Freecycle is a good source of pots; some garden centres have a container for people to leave old ones in if they're not required.

 It's a wonder we aren't all very fat, we are always eating cake!

But think of the exercise we get in our gardens!  Dug up 2 Rosa Rugosas today to go on freecycle, they were only in for 2 years & their roots were "extensive"

What's the weather like in your area?

Sorry Verdun but I've stopped the cheque - the rain started about 2pm, & that's not the sort of service I expect for my £5.

BTW does anybody get an accurate temperature forecast at the top of the page??

Today it says zero/zero degrees & for tomorrow 0/-1.   It was 8c mid morning according to the car. I suppose it tries to cover the whole area, which further inland includes mountains currently covered in snow. Not a lot of use for the most populous area though .

I spent £50 today in the gc - most of that was on plastic trellis for the honeysuckle, & some seeds which I've not tried before.  OH bought half price set of 3 different sized obelisks for my birthday   in a couple of weeks.

I won't be getting choccies as we try not to eat too much of tht kind of thing - we've just started on our 2nd Easter egg (yes, last year's!)  However there's a very good florist nearby........

We did have cake in the gc though - had to have something to help the tea down with...........
