Rose Cottage Plants have 217 different types of Dahlia, surely something for everyone.

No they don't pay me, but I do think they are excellent.

Sky Arts had a great programme last night on all the musicians that had died in 2016.

Some great footage of Keith Emmerson on a revolving piano.

Also fab. footage of Bowie and Prince.

Most Pennisetum are evergreen grasses and should not be chopped down. They should just have dead stems gently combed out in the Spring.

Need to add lots of compost / manure.

Then need to look up plants that like very dry conditions.

I prefer more numbers of fewer plants, but not all will agree.

Main issue will be the dryness.

Agree re. Rose Cottage Plants. They are great for Dahlias and for Tulips too.

It is strange isn't it Chicky? We must all be very like minded people.

I was concerned when I posted, that I might be upsetting people, but it seems there is quite a lot of agreement.

Much warmer today, so have been pottering.
