Ivy, holly and cyclamen - everywhere!!!

Posted: 06/12/2013 at 14:05

one word of warning, when working with ivy, it gives off fumes,which can cause respiratory problems, sore throats, etc ,so don't stick at the ivy pruning for any length of time and DO NOT shred, (gives if even more fumes!) or put on compost heap.

have had 2 of my boxes of plants,which have both been OK, except most of the begonias are now rotting off,(despite a lot of tlc on my behalf.) Am awaitng my next 2 boxes of perennials, and reserve judgement til then, but will probably not be ordering again next season.

I hadn't heard of this company, either, but had a catalogue in the post early this year.

I've placed a mixed order,and had my first plug plants 3 weeks ago. They were very well packed, and are growing on very healthily in my cool greenhuse. Looking forward to the rest of my order.

Talkback: Where have all the hedgehogs gone?

I have a garden full of hedgehogs!

Most of them, sadly, have legs damaged from garden strimmers.

I have a webcam, and put it our most nights, next to the bowls of hedgehog and fox food.
Many nights, the bowls are shared by both animals, with the occasional cat passing through!
