Blairs I love Phormium - your garden must be pretty big to have several - I have none, no space! I particularly love Chocomint, which I've never actually found though to buy.

Have tried Gumtree and eBay, with no success and wondered if anyone knew of a gardening website that allows members to put stuff up for sale on a board?

Thank you!

Pissenlit (literally means to wet the bed!) is dandelion in French, yes. That's because they drink it as a tisane - it is a known diuretic - and blimey is it effective!
