Aaaah...Verdun, I am surprised at your comment about Nigel. I always felt that you were a tolerant kind of guy, sort of "live and let live". I have had pets since childhood and miss not having one now.

I like Montys' way of presenting, so self effacing and not so in your face like Swift. Besides, if you feel that mentioning Nigel is inapporiate, where does "Forkers" fit in the forum? The postings are not always pertaining to gardening. But what do I know eh?

Yes, Vernon does belong to T&M. I have been buying speciality Geraniums from them for years and received a pile of very sad plants last year. Their customer service was excellent till then, and on investergating found to my horror that they were part of T&M. (I have had problems with T&M) big time.)

Sadly, the small speciality nurseries are finding it very hard to survive. I use my local small nurseries and smallholdings and they all say that it is tough and they are running at a loss.

Large companies have their fingers in alot of pies and can get away with non existant coustomer service by cheaper pricing and using their profits to propup weaker ones. At the end of the day, we the customers decide who gets our hard earned cash, and unfortunately, lower pricing wins........look at TESCO.

I grow on healthy pieces of moss in a shallow container and put it on rocks. I keep them watered till established. They look lovely. The small pieces I dry and leave for the birds with other appropriate in the spring.

You can also use it to line hanging baskets and to cover the soil in pots with plants and bulbs  growing in them.

Hi Nikki7, I agree with you, he is quite a thug and will grow anyyyyyywhere!! I have one covering a fence in a shady corner and it really lights it up. The little birds loves the seeds and the delicate brackets are pretty. It is no different than other easy growing plants.

My other one clambers up the pergola and together with a trumpet vine, a grape vine and a passion vine gives me a lovely shady area to sit underneath and watch the little birds twittering over head. What I do do yearly is to cut away the vines in the spring, as by then the seeds are all gone too and tidies it up.
