Hi Becks Cyclamen come from corms ie round lumps just under surface of soil not really bulb-like Perhaps your little bulbs are snowdrops, chinodoxa(glory of snow) muscari. They all naturalise. Got loads in this garden Found one corm about 12ins across. but most are small. I have ti mak sure OH doesn't mow where they are.

Lit burner - been raining /hailing most of afternoon. Cake is finally in oven, lack of eating apples meant i had to search Mary Berry for a cooking apple one. How times change at one time I would have used Delia.

Waiting for an extra dalek.- 3 weeks now. Any suggestions what i can do with garden clearance stuff until it comes, Don't want to put it in brown bin

Do you have to have pick out points...

Not plants but maybe similar colours then you would get more variety. Depends I guess on how formal you want it.

I'd smother the pergola in climbers as Sissinghurst white garden or for me, not room for pergola but have covered small bower with mixed clematis - for all year round interest and roses. Lots of different colours. Well it's not smothered yet - only planted up this year

Oh no!

My dog goes frantic if I don't go out into garden straight after breakfast for a look around, then he runs around in circles with excitement. Cat always has to come as well. For dog see avatar. Would miss him so much if he wasn't there.
