Pricked some seedling out this morning, placed pots on a border which I am hopefully going to be planting up soon when I get plants from somewhere  I cant find a single supplier which sells all the plants I want  hate paying postage out to multiple companys. 

Looks like I be picking rhubarb tomorrow cause the snow just broke it

Went GC yesterday, 4x compost and one bag of manure for cannas / potatoes. got a few 9cm pot perennials, phlox franz schurbert 3L- two foxglove illumination flame and a rose ( Mary rose ) which I am questioning now   I went for a peony originally but changed mind and went for a rose cause they flower longer. Anyone grown Mary rose before ? And I got 3 pallets to play with, thinking of making some veg planters.

I have loads of pots, its plastic labels sticks what seem to go missing.

Dont bury when planting, the top of the tuber needs to be above the soil are else they will possible rot. I have a picture if it helps. I store them like TGG but in a box in newpaper.
