Thanks aym - but definately pull love in a mist up, it'll seed everywhere! mine were just 4/5 plants given to me last year! My favourite part of the garden this year, just not sure what to do when they've finished flowering.

thanks nanniemo, I've been looking at totally tangerine (lovely)at Harlow Carr today, but prefer Mrs bradshaw in my borders it's much brighter.

Hello, ive had a great day off (rare - no kids or OH to please!). Went to Harlow Carr. Swathes and swathes of mecanopsis (KEF and PD you must go before they finish!), absolutely fabulous. The Harlow Carr candelabra primulas are quite a show stopper as well. Wonderful alpine displays too. Fell in love with a geranium Elizabeth Ann but they didn't have it in th explana shop - had to buy Lillies, tradescantia and errr heather ... heather because it looked great under the purple Acer so I need to recreate the look ( in hind sight it was just the colour, oops not that keen on heather normally!). Would love to share photos but it just tells me the file is too big so you'll have to take a trip yourselves! Hope you are all well and enjoying your gardens. x

Hi all. Had a nice weekend, Wentworth garden centre and garden yesterday, nostell priory today. Fab weather today. Trying to get mojo back in the garden but struggling at the mo. Away next weekend with Dove Cottage on the agenda and a plant fair at carsington water so hopefully that and Chelsea on TV will help ( GW not doing it for me at all this year!). Oh, sorry all a bit dismal but hope you are all well and enjoying your gardens. Cannas on the list PuncDoc.

Sorry to stop the humour but here's the tech bit...

Anaesthetic comes in cartridges in set amounts so economy not really an issue.

If there's a large amount of infection then anaesthetic won't work well, you'll need antibiotics first.

Yes, definately easier and quicker if patient is numbed up.

Any dentist should be able to give effective pain relief via anaesthetic, occasionally some areas can be tricky but not impossible. 

There are rigies in every business.

Sorry...back to plants...

Hey everyone - found you again! Popped in to say hi! What a difference to the forum, ongoing update I understand - hardly recognised you! 

Went to local plant fair (in a village called Wortley for those folk near me). It was earlier this year and had transformed into a plant and craft fair. Beautiful crafts but only 3 plant stalls! Still I managed to sneak away with a lovely Scabiosa Misty Blue, a few plant supports and a little stone rabbit. Took son who just about remained intact after scuttling around on his scooter. 

Dove, so sorry to hear about ma. Hope your sadness is wrapped tight in a blanket of happy memories. Love and best wishes.

Got some nice tulips but not much else yet in the garden. Shouldn't. the rhododendrons be doing their thing by now? I'm sure the 'late' one has flowered early but still waiting for the Easter two. 

Lilac still looking pathetic after a mad prune two years ago.

Bowles mauve won't stop flowering - every day since I got it last ?june/July, including xmas! it needs a good prune to bush up but far too lovely! 

OH cycling at weekend in Peak district, so just might pop over to Chatsworth.

Oh! - that reminds me -newsflash - got tickets for Tatton Flower show! so excited- my first ever! 

Hope you are all are well.

What are your favourite scented plants?
