Bunny - quite a few trees in Sainsburys car park are completely wrapped up in green netting - looks very odd!
The building is going to be extended soon and I think parts of the car park will be changing,too - so it wouldn't surprise me to see the trees being dug up sometime soon

Good afternoon all

Lottie - funny you should mention the trees - I asked the girl who works in the clothing dept. about them this morning and she said it was to stop the birds nesting in them!! I thought it would be because they will be digging them up at some point.

I would love to do that Liz - sounds lovely -)
I know it isn't the same but I have been to a couple of singalong evenings at the theatre -the Wizard of Oz and The Sound of Music
There is a herb nursery in Cornwall that we visited a few years ago with the naughtiest statues in the garden that I have ever seen -much too naughty to put pics on here - when I saw them I blushed!!!

I had problems with vernons last year when the Amethyst trailing geraniums I ordered turned out to be bright pink and striped! I complained and was sent another batch which also had 2 plants of the wrong colour. They are being replaced in the Spring for me. I also bought a collection of 4 Dianthus which were named varieties and a little bit on the expensive side and after a few days one of the plants died .when I phoned to tell them I was told the variety wasn't in stock any more and would I like to choose something else so I chose a Josephine clematis which when it flowered wasn't - it is also being replaced in the Spring. All complaints have been dealt with promptly with no quibbles and the plants supplied have been of good quality so I think on balance they are a good company to buy from

tomato seeds

That is so annoying when you would like to grow a particular variety and can't buy the seed!!
It sounds like a good variety to grow with resistance to things - I hope you manage to track some down I will keep looking

Cosmos seeds - mixed up

Chicly - Bob and Nutcutlet are right - the stems of white cosmos are usually green and the red ones will most likely have slightly coloured stems
