..I've just remembered I've got some roses still to come from Beales as well, so I can't put my feet up just yet...   I shall probably put them in on Christmas Day, weather permitting.... I have found it's usually a great day for gardening...

..I work in retail and got wind of this some weeks ago, so decided to book Black Friday off.... a wise decision I should say...   of course if they were all fighting over a gorgeous Rhododendron then I would understand it perfectly...lol...

hi Beaus Mum,

the roses I'm awaiting are 'The Generous Gardener' 'The Lark Ascending' and 'The Herbalist'... the first two are for the obelisks...the other one elsewhere...

..I got two of these, although I didn't get them from this site, but from the one mentioned above on this thead, which was a bit cheaper than this one...  these are probably made in China...cheap and cheerful but they will do the job for me for a few years I hope... I already have some smaller ones and very pleased with them...  it's the shape I like so much...

of course, I would rather have bought these here:-

and especially these:-

..but at £350.00 each one......forget it...lol..

Lyn... I love that arch... and it's not too wide either... I hadn't noticed that one before... oh well...

..I used to concrete in my arches when I had them... I found it quite easy to do and made such a difference...

..slightly off topic but I'm becoming quite impressed with a store called 'Range'... the nearest to me is at King's Lynn in Norfolk....can't say I'd ever taken much notice of it before..I think it's some kind of discounter maybe..but they have a huge range of home, kitchen and garden products and their small garden centre out the back is actually quite impressive.... the plants are all named varieties.... not simply Azalea - Red...   and a surprisingly large choice...things like Acer's, Buddleia's,.. some perennials and various shrubs and climbers...  smallish plants to grow on...

...if there is one anywhere in your vicinity, I do recommend giving it a try if you haven't already done so.... it's new to me...
