Absolutely agree with you Pansyface, and have been saying this for ages. All that obesity around and most pubs, cafes & restaurants serve a sandwich with all those extras - so unnecessary.

I think sun is preferable to shade.

Yes, so am I Pink Lily, but I now meed a 19-20" replacement! Was thinking a getting an attractive plastic one, but abandoned that idea as decided to get one to match this if I can get one large enough.

Winter hanging baskets

I've got one of those pulley gadgets on my hanging baskets, which makes watering so easy.  A couple of my Heucheras are the trailing variety, which look good.

Is gardening good for the soul?

Well, it's certainly good for this 'soul' - being outside in the fresh air, sun or even rain, beats being indoors.  Picking tomatoes and runner beans today for dinner was so satisfying.  I agree that doing something creative is very rewarding, but when it's shared with wildlife in the garden, it's something else!

Yours is beautiful, Fairygirl!  So big!  Mine was described as a 'Buzz', but is now 5' tall.

Thank you, PP!  I quite enjoyed it.  No, I hadn't thought of building a raised bed/planter, but really worth considering, Fairygirl, as I have quite a few 'acid' plants.   Thank you for your ideas and advice.

Yes, I'd definitely put it in a  pot and put it in the ground in a sunny spot in Spring if it looks healthy and large enough. I bought some freebies a few years ago, which were that size and they did well, particularly this ivory one.
