Dicentra 'King of Hearts'

I am after a Dicentra 'King of Hearts', but my local nursery has sold out for this season.  Could anyone please recommend an on line nursery for perennials?  Thank you.

Chimney pots, copper coal scuttles (slugs/snails won't go near them), wooden crates, baskets, old enamel bowls, wheel barrows.

Thank you, everyone. The hose on the Bosch could be a problem. We will probably replace our Karcher with the same model, having given it more thought, so we can use the existing tools.

Lovely weather for December - Sorry late April

A few week's ago in the Saturday Telegraph Gardening supplement, Helen Yemm recommended a small pressure washer in her Thorny Problems column.  I've since recycled the papers and can't remember the model she referred to.  As our Karcher has now given up the ghost and will cost too much to repair, we have decided to buy a new one.  Can anyone else remember, please?

Monty - just saying......

I am thoroughly enjoying this series of GW and find Monty's style very natural, without all the glitz of some gardening celebrities. The inclusion of Nigel and Nellie just add to a calm experience, with the added bonus of learning about gardening too. Can't get enough of the programme, personally.

Our Karcher has given up the ghost and OH says the part is too expensive to replace and would also be fiddly, so we're buying another one.  Did anyone see Helen Yemm's recommendation for a pressure washer in Saturday's Telegraph gardening pages a few weeks ago?  It wasn't a Karcher and was relatively small, cost about £50 I think, which would suit me as I only use it a couple of times a year.

Perhaps someone on this thread can swap with you?  If not, you could sell your ticket and book another one for Wednesday.  But, you've probably already thought of that. Worth phoning RHS for advice.

Sounds perfectly logical to me!

And what about 'hun'? I hear it all the time where I do voluntary work!
