I am going to have to come to Tesco s rescue here, I have always found them very helpful.

when I changed my postcode the delivery base couldn't find me so wouldn't deliver. I sent an email t head office where a girl immediately phoned me back to say she'd look into it. It took a while but she kept me informed and finally got it sorted out. 

They offered me a discount code which I couldn't  seem to get to work, I phoned them and they talked me through it, putting the code on their end, everyone I have spoken to, I could understand,  except maybe the broad Geordie girl, who though it very funny that I couldnt understand her, even though I have Geordie relatives! 

They were also very helpful when I couldn't get my GW mag subscription sorted out, giving me a new code to try, so, I have had no bad experiences from them at all. On the contrary, they have been brilliant in every way.

Pot on and plant out mid to end of May when you're sure you won't have a frost.

Have you grown them before FB, they are like triffids, don't walk away, you won't recognise them when you come back. Are you after poisoning someone

I have four up so far but Hostas just put in another half dozen for me.

Lyn, I'm trying to think what they have sent you. Is it KidNaps melatonin?

Midazolam, only gave 0.5mg or is that ml? But it's worked, inserted into the cheek, he went off to sleep instantly, I've just changed him and I don't think he even knew. Just me to sort out now, made a cuppa, have a catch up, as you do

I bought three for here, very acid soil, they were only Parkers 1.99 bare roots, four years ago, they've grown to about 3'6" so far, they have lovely red leaves in the autumn, hadn't noticed berries although they do flower.

The Apple blossom Geranium won't live outside, it hates rain on the petals, they will go a brown soggy mess. I always grow them as indoor plants. Had them for 25 years or more, same plant, just cutting every year.

Were they seeds from T &M they wrap everything I a bag, have a look on the net for the same seeds from a different company, may find they don't really need a bag. I never put any in a bag.
