Posted: 09/04/2014 at 12:26

Thanks nodlisab, not looking promising is it? Think I'll wait a few years!

Thanks Orchid, not sold on the glam rock as yet, but love the pics. let me know what you see at GC and how it looks.

Thanks for explanation Dove, will stick with the floater (oo err), don't think micropond will have room for anything planted but I'll keep an eye out for green water etc.Any problems - I know where to come!

Thanks everyone,not quite what I wanted you to say  Wanted you to say it's massive and completely true to colour on the photo regardless of where it's planted - never mind!

Did put it on my birthday list last Oct but took it off again when I saw how small it would be and considering the price. I'll keep my eyes open at GC when it should be in flower later in the year.

Ok got it - dove ; shoes ; Imelda. Sorry took me a while. Got a fish called Imelda (because of her shoes!) and another called Jimmy.

1 bunch of  'crispa' from GC, thanks to Dove, floating pond plant, some will also go in fish tank indoors.

What's pond soil???

KEF - arches WILL be delivered on 18th or I will cry so much my micro pond will overflow!

Morning all. Sat outside GC wondering if its too early to go in. Lots of posts to comment on but can't quite remember what, edds chair sounds fab, who's Imelda? Where dove off to now? Hidcote not seen yet. Troubled workers have a good day.
Sneaked kef away from her garden yesterday and went to botanical gardens, lots of interesting plants especially tree ferns inside the glass house. Embarrasingly never found the weigelas, of which I've just been given a new one. Had a quick look round each others gardens, oohed and ahhhed at kefs fab plants and tidy GHs.
All followed by friends for tea, well more family really. They arrived as I was setting up replacement fish tank, OH catching fish, me syphoning water and insisting it goes in buckets outside ready for watering garden! Ended up with fish n chips from chippy ( not tank!), I know how to treat my guests!
Have a good day all.

I keep seeing this (it has been on offer through GW) , hydrangea Glam Rock. It looks too good to be true. Common sense tells me it won't be as impressive in 'real gardens' unless the ph is spot on and even then maybe not. Has anyone any experience or photos of theirs? Thank you.

Some seeds in GH starting to pop through, after 2-3 weeks, it's still pretty cold for the others I think.

Have had a lovely day looking at gardens, including Sheffield's botanical gardens. Weather held off mostly and supplemented by a nice slice of lime drizzle cake and coffee. 

ID please... bit vague

2nd thoughts no, not if it's the one nearer the house, behind the 'round' clipped one?

ANyone think it could be a tamarisk (can't see  picture very well) but flowers tend to be paler lilac rather than deep purple, I think it flowers a bit later than this time of year here (Yorkshire)
