I went far royal flush in the end.  nice red  foliage in spring and smaller than arsendsii so I it come closer to the front of the border rather than the back were neighbours could possibly come in contact with it. 

I am going to get stainless steel one day looks great.

I would like Aconitum carmichaelii Arsendsii in my border I got a perfect picture in my head how good it would look , but I am a bit worried it might poison my neighbours  is it really as poisons as they say, even to touch? I wanted to plant one next to my white currant, I dont really pick them but the birds have a good do out of them would it poison the birds as well? 

Any good ideals for something similar blue about 5ft, flowers late in the season.

rotting lily bulbs

I like to sit them on a little layer of sharp sand, If planted in pots permanently john inns No3 would be best. did you put any crocks/stones etc at the bottom of the pot to improve drainage?  I left my pots of lilys in a rain shawdow at the side of the house for now because it will not stop raining.

It's my birthday
