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..

...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 ...

..ordering roses....admiring roses... planting roses....pruning roses... and picking roses.... in that order I suppose....

...and currently wondering why I get this yellow tea pot with a spout pouring water on some posts.... I have it here hovering between fruitcake's and newboy's posts above...   no I'm not on drugs...
