Grandad had a greenhouse. He grew Tomatoes, then Crysanthemums. I had a little patch outside where I grew seeds. When we moved to the bungalow that we are now in, we only, well, I only decided that I wanted to buy it because there was a large tree at the bottom of the garden. I love seeds, bulbs, Dahlias, and yes, Tomatoes and Crysanthemums!!

Went to Antigua 3 years ago, and went to Nelsons Dockyard, where there is a little museum. It had a piece of Wedgewood, which I stood admiring, as I come from Stoke. An American guy sidled up to me..."Yeah...well you guys pinched the idea of proper china from the French didn't ya!!". Me....."Well, Josiah Wedgwood perfected that 'proper china' didn't he?". American chap looks at me, very puzzled..."Who?" he says... Mmmmnnnn.........I do hope that they haven't lost it all there, it is such a lovely place, and I hope all the people are safe and able to rebuild.

A 'no-brainer' Hosta! I also had a box of Honeybells from Sainsburys that look quite nice. Eight bulbs for £2.50. I always look at the local shops before I buy from a Garden Centre-trouble is...I still spend as much money 'cos I just buy more

I've had some of those Daffs Hosta. The bulbs look really good quality for the price

Just looking at your post again....I would say that 75 would give you at least 7 or 8 large pots...and deadheading them increases the amount of flowers you get

I've got some Oooft that are in pots. I believe (and I may be wrong on this) that they are quite tender, so I have mine in a greenhouse over the winter, and they go out early spring. I look after them the same as I do my other bulbs, feed and redress the pots every year when they die down, keep them damp but not too wet. It has worked for me so far, but others might have better info.  I'm in Staffordshire, so you may have to put them outside a bit later than me.
