Morning all.

Will look forward to seeing anenome on star thread  dove and others.

Verdun  promises please?

once ive dropped car off at garage i will be stranded for most of day. Lavender to pot up, will then put on star or gallery thread.

Will look out for garden news Stacey - that's the one that gives something free every time isn't it.

planted tulips now, is this OK?

Lady in local GC advised me (I had similar question but before planting), she said more of a problem if in the ground than in pots, and now should be ok (in pots). She said the trouble was if they put on too much growth early the new roots can get damp and rot before spring.

i'm impressed Panda, how did you find it?

Had a read and think its needs too much TLC for my talents at the moment...but at £2, if it lasts indoors it'll look good for xmas...3 in a row with tiny red baubles

Thanks too Gardengirl but I think Panda wins this one x

Well that's another day over, ok half a day at work. Time to spare before picking son up - so where do I end up?  GC of course - not to spend , just to look... £25 later... New Propagator, do I need it? Best to be prepared. 3 x lavender lusitanica for the 3 tall planters , an ivy which can be split into 6 to go with them. And 3 diaries (don't ask). A few photos of plants to look up, I can go back on Friday  

anyone know what this curly spikey thing is ?

 It's not come out very well as taken on my phone then photoed onto ipad to post. 

Flowering out of season

Rhododendron tried flowering again, but that's definately not a good thing, they should be growing buds bigger for spring not making a fast track to flowers now. Oh well its only 2 less in spring.

Must agree this week was weak on advice and real gardening. If they want go make it more mainstream ( easy watching, less techniquey, Nigel, ) then try to appeal to the next generation as well. Show ways to get kids involved, or more keep older kids interested. They aren't going to risk a separate show for it are they , but often mention how we need the youngsters to take up gardening. Morning moan over.
