No such thing as a bargain!

My favourite nursery dos'nt have a discount bit, but they are so reasonably priced they don't need one, 60p for 9cm pots and I hav'nt had any failures from them yet.

Hi louise, astrantia self seed in my garden, I do nothing to encourage them but they seem to just get on with it, they are quite slow to get to a good size plant.

Thankyou Marion, I think my sedums are too small for chopping, I only put them in last year and they were in 9cm pots, so I shall leave them be.

I'm really sorry...

No, sorry LH, not got a clue this time, but the blue one in the first picture is lovely.

Lovely photo's as always Marion. Have you done the Chelsea chop on your sedums yet, the ones at Waterperry Gardens don't look to have been done, I'm still in doubt as far as mine are concerned.

Just found a cornflower and a corn cockle(I think) out in the new wildflower garden, very pleased.

Alright then, it is a prolific self seeder and has a very robust habit. But it still stinks.

I think my granddad used to put soot around his but I cant remember the details as to when or what part of the soot had any effect, and it may have been a bit of a myth. 

Is it just me?

No Edd, you're just a bit odd, but I don't like putting my hands in the oven if I cant see into it.
