How much to charge...

Ooooooo, I would charge less than that if you want to sell the lot.  Bare root right now?   I would say £1 50.  If any are large, your water lily for example, maybe £2 

Baring in mind, Verdun only ever goes for a bargain......I bet he gets his do nuts cheap because he's a regular customer!

i would be happy to pay 5.00 for a water lily, and 2.00 for others, but then I am stocking a pond. I paid 15.00 for a lily and it's not half as good as one someone sent me free!

if you have any left over, I will pm you.x

My cat Thomas has been out in the garden with me all morning, never out of view, I go in the greenhouse, he comes in, then I said 'tea and biscuit time' and he was at the door before me. Very busy day, he's worn out!

I have the Blue Hobbit, grows to 3ft , they like dry soil, not rich, the very name suggests what they like, Sea Holly, so poor soil and hot dry air.

beware, once you have one they self seed and you will have a hundred by next year, 

they look nice in big groups as they are bit spindly, thin and weedy looking on their own.  They soon take off.

My white one is just flowering now, daughter bought me two pink ones, I have a bed of the rampant one, but it's quire well behaved, I just chop back any bits that grow outside of where I want it. 

I love them.

Fantastic wildlife pics from Clarice.

i used to dig up dahlias but last year took the chance and left them in, all came up but you have to watch for slugs as they have the new shoots off straight away, I also grew some from seeds just in case.

...and you'd think they'd've made more of a gap between Christmas and New Year,

I wish there was a bigger gap between New Year and Christmas.

I have a cousin in Tasmania Dove, rest of the family are in Perth, and some in Norfolk and some in Holland on Sea, we are a scattered lot.

Put the cream on one half, the jam on the other, put them together and get the filling from ear to ear.
