Thanks Lily, if she ever does it again I'll send her via parcel post.
MrsGarden, I'll have to look some of them up. Re: getting them going, in the past when planting stuff out if I haven't had my own compost I've incorporated some multi p in the digging hole ( we have clay) & some Growmore, making sure G isn't in contact with roots. This year anything new will have BFB dug in rather than Growmore. Had always been a tad worried about that regarding CJD, but have read enough recently to feel okay with it, but will wear gloves and not use on a windy day. I know we should always wear gloves, but I'm a muck monster.
Had a few large blobs of rain (that's all) and very windy, we are quite open to winds, little Fatsia Japonica has been blown over and pot cracked, but no worries he's due to be re-located soon. Dare I say ? parts of this garden needs some gentle rain, due to clay baking and then drying out, so cracks appearing.
Fairy very sorry to ask for some rain, send some here via wand.
