Becks, I liked Caramac too, but for an Easer egg, a Dairy Box egg was always best.

Kate, a perennial osteopermumTresco purple, actea Samuel Crompton, agastache Black Adder, potentilla x tonguei, erigeron karvinskianus and a couple of grasses. Could have bought a lot more! Once I have charged the camera, I'll post some photos.

Dean, lovely lily.

Hi all, had a lovely afternoon, I helped the nursery owner a lot Kate! Their garden was stunning, a sloping site with some fabulous prairie planting. Well worth the visit and open for NGS today.

Hope Jess manages to get some sleep tonight Becks.

Kate, just had a look at the previous threads on this, there seem to be mixed feelings about this one. Feel bad about duplicate postings now.

Ah, I think I have seen that on a thread before, perhaps that was what I was remembering. Thanks, Kate. Should she be worried about it?

afternoon all, late appearance due to me being engrossed in finish a good book this morning. I was awake at 7am honest!

Just had a bacon sandwich and we are off to Dove Cottage Garden and Nursery in Halifax this afternoon, so might be an opportunity to buy a plant or 2. Will report later.

Lottie, bad luck on the plants, you were probably better off out of the melee that it must have been. DId I tell you I am a member of Chocoholics Anonymous???

Pam, what a great ambition to be in the Paralympics, watched some of the football yesterday, amazing.

Catch up later.

Dean, cross your fingers it's a 24 hour bug, Flo, hope the throat doesn't turn I to a cold, mine usually does.

Have come in from the garden to rest my back now, dug up a load of alchemilla that was growing around my steps and dislodging them. OH came to dig up the old hebe that needed taking out and then set to work on the phygelius that is rampant. There was a huge network of roots and runners under the soil. Haven't managed to get all of it out yet.

Afternoon all, what a lot of chat I missed, pretty begonias, Probus, allotments, digging up gardens, camping, dancing and there's more, Lottie, I used to love going to camp with the League of Friendship (a local group like guides but with green uniforms). Don't think I would want to sleep on a camp bed now though!

Becks, will you be going minimal, so that Jess can take all her toys? Remember you are going to have a great time.

New school eh Frank, don't they grow up fast?

Off up the garden now, OH has offered to help me, wonders will never cease!

Evergreen hedging query

You could always go for a good old fashioned privet hedge. There have been a couple of threads about native hedges which would give you some ideas too. Lonicera nitida would make a decent hedge and one of my neighbours has used the purple berberis in a mixed hedge which looks quite good. It does have some sharp thorns though. How about holly?
