If you want specific plants, I think you are much better using on line nurseries, many of which sell very good plants, often far cheaper than GCs.

I am not sure it is H. jubatum, it looks more like one of the Penisetums to me.

Cold Calling Experiences

I get regular calls, from a company that want to sell me wine as an investment.

Wine is something I am interested in, and also know a fair amount about.

I have great fun, rubbishing what they say, tell them they are trying to con me, and then a week later they phone again.

What is that all about?

New GW...??

What exotic plants are you growing this year?

Posted: 02/09/2016 at 22:55

My Colocasia is huge this year.

Planted a small tuber 2 years ago, dug it last winter, and started it indoors in February. Planted it out in June, and now has leaves 2-3 foot long, and a foot wide.

Well pleased.

Loved it.

Lots of variety, more please.

I love my sport too, but surely we can fit in an hour a week of GW.

How about the odd special programme during the year as well?

YES, YES, YES [ Not when Harry met Sally ]

I had not heard that one Hosta, as you say the delicious irony of it.

I don't get Donald Trump, or maybe the problem is I do!

I think Climate change is a great example. People like Trump say, I don't believe in it, well where is their expertise on the subject? He thinks USA should burn more coal, and abandon renewable energy.
