Chris  We chose it because when ever we took a weekend break we always seemed to end up here or nearby and as you say loved it.

Go to Malvern Spring and Autumn show though always seem to be somewhere else for 3Counties Show. Secret go to shows last afternoon - brilliant bargains as stock is cleared. Got some great plants and greenhouse. Last time greenhouse staging And seed trays for £12.

Wonder how Geoff getting on.

I wasn't in car, previuos person I knew was. Not scathed

Estate agents, they told us, are now supposed to sort out genuine interest from time wasters.

On a good run it can take about 50mins, we have known it 1hr 30mins. We chose Malvern Hills so that if needed we can get up to Staffs quite quickly.

Won't get tree till December, By then hope to be able to exchange pressies as well, I'm always the least organised as far as that goes

My first car was squashed by a large lorry when lorry skidded on ice.

Gardening For Wildlife

Just remember you have a fairly small patch and a buddleiea and more trees could use up your sun. There is a Buddleiea Buzz that is a small growing one (Thompson & Morgan) but do watch your heights. Perrennials are good, sow a wild flower area, , give the birds shrubs toperch on when they come to your feeder. Plan/research before you plant. The Expert series by Dr Hessayon especially on shrubs - there are 2 - will also guide you to wildlife friendly plants . Useful if you Know very little and not too expensive to buy.http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Tree-Shrub-Expert-best-selling/dp/0903505177/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1352820427&sr=8-4

perennials I didn't get round to planting

Posted: 13/11/2012 at 15:19

When i moved house I took a lot of perrennials. As I was unable to plant them out and they had to get through a winter I buried the pots in the ground. Gives quite a bit of frost protction and gives more time to plant them out in spring.
