If you like roses and want to try something different, then you might be interested in this French site, which has a fabulous catalogue of unusual roses.  I can recommend them wholeheartedly as I've just received my order from them, which I only placed 6 days ago. 

...It's very easy to order and pay, and doesn't cost much more than ordering in this country, about the same I would say, or even less....   the proprietors are English I think, or American...so no language problems either... the only thing to watch is that some may not be totally hardy in this country...but there are places to check up on these if necessary...

I have an excellent library near me....it's on two floors and full of interest, but I hardly ever go in there...sometimes get a bit of photocopying done...have to pay for that....  see lots of people using internet facilities...all lined up reminds me of an old typing pool... I suppose they have to pay..

....I wouldn't subscribe but would pay..oh I dunno...50p on the door to get in, if asked..

I'm 103...

I was just looking for this thread...

...already mentioned a few times but I must put in a tip top word for Knoll Gardens...

http://www.knollgardens.co.uk/

..perennials and ornamental grass specialists, and perhaps they're not too busy at this time of year, but I ordered my plants on Sunday evening and they arrived today Tuesday morning... now that's what I call fast!.... excellent 2 litre pots, superb condition and even a handwritten thank you note to go with it... 

..postage and packing £10 for up to 10 plants...30p extra per plant... but next day delivery from when they are despatched...and sent by courier.... also you don't have to wait in for them, they will leave where you want...

..I ordered various Helenium, Persicaria, Rudbeckia, Gaura and Pennisetum...

..it seems like an extension of one's garden really and I like that very much, with the fencing, barbecue...flowers and greenhouse....  setting it up must have cost a bit I suppose, and wonder how long this has taken you to get to this stage...?

..nice rainbow..

Favourite garden task?

...some of these favourite tasks sound like awful hard work to me... lol... does no one pick scented flowers any more?.... you don't have a little wooden trug to carry around and snip things off?... even if it's your runner beans....  I s'pose I'm living in the past ...
