That should've been a pound sign NOT question marks!

I only wear wellies in the bad weather, the rest of the time I wear lightweight gardening clogs that you can buy at most garden centres ( I noticed that Wilkinsons are now selling them) they come in all colours and are ??6.99 - how do crocs compare with that price?

Ok I give in, guess I'll have to buy some crocs then!

The only thing is that wellies with the sides cut out might be a tad less uglier than Crocs, but just as useless.

Love your sense of humour Paul N - your reply to joslow really made me laugh! However, I agree with most of the replies in that I don't think it's possible to stretch wellies. I put my tight pair in the charity bag and bought a new pair. I also have a pair of half wellies that are so easy to take on and off and I tend to wear them (when needed) most of the time.

Many thanks to everyone for their advice, it's really appreciated. I can't believe I've got away with leaving my Hostas in pots for about ten years! They have done very well but I suppose they would be bigger now if I had divided them. Even so, they look lovely in pots on the patio. I think I might take advice from obelixx and divide them in the spring as it gets quite cold and windy here in Lincolnshire and I don't want to lose them,also it might give me time to build up my muscles in order to tackle them - wish me luck.

I have had my hostas in pots for quite a few years and although they do very well I would like to divide them to increase my stock, however I just can't get them out of the pots and think I might have to smash the pots in order to remove the plants,which I'd rather not do unless I have to. I'd be grateful if anyone has any ideas please?

Further  to my previous post about poor customer service from T&M, I contacted GW direct as I wouldn't expect anyone to trawl through the forum to sort out our problems. GW dealt with my complaint about T&M very promptly for which I was grateful. As far as I'm concerned the way to assess a good company is by the way they deal with any complaints and the way T&M dealt with mine was to ignore it! I will never order anything from them again.

I would contact Gardeners' World Magazine about the poor quality plants you received from T&M. I had similar problems with this company as they sent me the wrong plants and only refunded me for their mistake when I insisted. They promised to send me the correct plants the following season and when I didn't hear anything from them, even after sending them several emails I finally contacted Gardeners' World and after some correspondence with them, I finally received some replacement plants. However, I don't think they would have bothered if GW wouldn't have contacted them. If GW  have T&M  offers in their magazine I think they have to take some responsibility for their very poor customer service.

I think the two previous posts say it all. Just adapt the ideas the Monty demonstrates to suit your own pocket and remember that Monty has been down on his luck in the past as anyone who has read his books would know! Monty does it his way, Geoff did it his way and Alan did likewise. Just take what you want from their advice no need to take offence!
