chicky  I get Gardeners world magazine and send off for the free plug plants only paying postage and packaging, and grow them on from last year. So this year awaiting blue, pink and white Lavenders, Penstemons, Guems, Carnations waiting to flower all of which are new to the garden. Then I take cuttings from them for friends.  This can become addictive, but cheap.

Jimmy Crawford it will get warmer, don't give up hope

Wintersong really beautiful.

Daids10 stunning peony, so many blooms wish mine was like that.

Katherine W, I have pink, purple and white foxgloves ranging in height from 3 feet to 6 feet, but have never planted any or sown seeds , so there freebies from somewhere

Dahlias have now taking over the veg patch, to be used for cut flowers, for family and friends so much easier than veg.

It's 26th July 1.30 to 5pm and by appointment May to September for gardening groups, this really focuses the mind, all the money going to the charities which makes the hard work worth it.

The address is Sweet Briar Cottage on the NGS website

Thank you all for your lovely comments, we try and keep it up together as we open for The National Garden Scheme over 200 people last year on the open day, madness.

The sign in the greenhouse says, Gardeners know all the dirt.
