Oh Dove, I'm sorry.  Never been in that position so I can only guess, but I'm sending you a massive hug.  xx

Treated myself!  Lets see how this fella likes being a house plant. Any tips gratefully received!


i spotted that can get the seeds with mixed colours.  Not so mad on the other colours but thought if this one doesn't make it, I could grow some from seed and choose the nicest colour one for indoors, and use the rest as summer bedding.  

how do I pronounce it?  Is the emphasis on the "cel" or the "o"?

Yes! Brilliant!  Thanks Hogweed.  Will give it a go indoors.

This thread makes me feel so much better!  When my husband was my boyfriend we had arranged to meet at a cinema.  As I was driving into the car park I realised he'd said the other one.  So went to drive straight back out again.  But managed to drop the car park ticket in the car turning round. Turned up after about 20 mins of searching, thinking I was going mad.  It had managed to get in a slot in the plastic panel of the car door. By which time I needed to pay. So had to go all the way to the shopping centre to pay and come back again before I could get out and drive to the other cinema. was a bit embarrassing explaining that one....

Hi, I'm trying to find an old thread- maybe a few months ago.  Someone was given a plant and wondered what it was.  You identified it as summer bedding although can be a house plant.  I was pleased as I'd seen one unlabelled at a garden centre and really liked it but there was noone around to ask.  But being a silly Snoodle, I've forgotten already! Does it ring any bells?  Plant was small, green leaves and the prettiest tall thin fluffy dark pink flowers

Hi, being trying to respond but clingy child keeps insisting on either me or the iPad.  I think we should postpone.  It'll be a grim journey too, and such a shame to go to all that effort and not see the garden properly.  Let's try again for a date next month.  Garden may be better closer to autumn anyway, rather than at the august lull. (Ok, so looking on the bright side, there!)

Staking standard fuchsias and the like

It's a mature plant.  I had to stake myself as it came in one of those plastic pots with staking mesh attached- had to destroy mesh to pot on.  So I've had to risk the roots.  Will be having a go at cuttings though so will do as you say.
