Ah, suspected as much, Nut. Thanks all. I'll just keep my eye for for a deal like Salino's then and divide.

I think you said you couldn't do third weekend? Well I can't do 1st or 4th weekend so homed in on 2nd weekend. But would need to be home by 6pm on sat 9th which is ok by me but I'd like to pick you and panda up and wouldn't want to curtail the post garden Adnams so suggested the Sunday.....

Nope. That's the plant! I saw that earlier and was pleased too until the price alerted me to it being a plant.

Oooh, good idea! Dove told me to bring my pelargoniums onto a windowsill for winter which is great for this year, but I'm hoping they'll multiply in future years so where will they all go? The office! Of course! Elevenses with a deadhead and water! Lovely. Smashing idea. I don't find time at home for house plants, but I'm sure I'll find time in the office.....

G Deadhead, "ground elder hog day"!! That made me laugh. Story of my garden!! Just when I think I've got it, it's back, exactly as before! Oh, I'll think of that every time I'm out there de- eldering!

Anyone know if I can grow japanese blood grass from seed? Can't see any anywhere so suspect not. I've got an idea which will need several plants but not sure how they'd do in my heavy soil. Would like to grow a load frond seed and see how they do. Otherwise I suppose I could buy a largish plant and divide?

Yeys! Great idea Fidget! Can I be the "novice says" reviewer?

Definitely up for Beth Chatto but suspect I'll be a pain in the wotsit about dates. Won't feel hurt if you go for a date I can't do, but can I kick off the suggestions? How about Sunday 10th august?

Hey guys. Just remembered it's brown bin day and it's not out so just a short one for me before I run out in my dressing gown and sticky up hair.
Thanks for thinking of me , Dove. I live on high ground so personally ok, hoping those at the marina are ok. We've a 3 storey house so more worried about being hit by lighting (esp after Clari's note the other day).
Now to scroll back and find out what happened to OL's foot.

Thanks guys for a fabulous day. You're a really lovely bunch and by the end of the day it seemed odd to think we'd only just met. Garden's were amazing and extensive. Got a guide book to take home so will spend rest of evening perusing. Bought the potted blue tree above (well a small one) despite Nut pointing out it's not hardy. Please don't laugh when it's a twig after the winter. Panda's fault - said, "don't listen to her" although think saying don't listen to Nut is probably worst advice . Had a ball. Thanks all xxx

I'm digging a pond by hand...
