biennials to plant in situ over the next month?

Don't forget Honesty, it comes in white or a lovely purple, also Hesperis matronalis both great for back of the border. Seeds can be sown anytime now.

Thanks very much everyone, it has gone onto my wish list.

Well done Fishy65. I would'nt be without Foxgloves in my garden and have over the years grown many different ones. All smashing, once you have them you'll never be without them.

Still no fact sheets, why not I wonder. Even a proper list of the plants shown would help.

Anyone know the name of the blue Geranium that Carol bought at the Malvern show last week?

It's not too late to sow them now, they should come on well.

What would Alan suggest as the best all round flowering blossom spring tree for a small garden.

Yes my Daughter bought Pennys Pink this year as well. It's a smashing Hellibore, you choose well Lisa.

dahlia tubers in ground through winter question.

Where I live, we're into May before outside tubers left in the ground over the winter start to sprout. Depends where you live among lots of other things as Verdun says.Despite it being very wet, I moved a couple of mine that I'd left in the ground as I'm making a new dahlia bed. The tubers were plump and fine, no sign of rot at all thankfully.

I've grown them for years Cotty100. I first planted maybe 3 or 6 I can't remember how many I bought at the time in various parts of the garden but they did'nt do well for me. About 4 or 5 years ago I moved them and planted them with their heads up above the soil at the edge of a sunny border. They have multiplied and this year I have over 20 of them. As autumn turns into winter and they bloom they look smashing even if by that stage the leaves are a bit scraggy. I cover the tops over during the worst of the winter to help protect them from frost. Hope this helps and good luck.
