I was coming back from taking the dog for a walk when I saw one of my neighbours digging in her front garden. Next to her was a bucket containing a large number of hellebores.hello says I those are lovely. I'm just taking them out says she to give to my sister,would you like some?so I came away with two beautiful colours. And when I sorted them out I found little seedlings in the soil around them so my two turned into ten!! I love it when something like that happens it made my day! Thought I'd share with people who might care as hubby just looked at me blankly he can't understand why I was so excited!! Off to watch gardeners world now. On my own with above dog and a glass of wine!!

Am waiting with bated breath for my yellow pelargoniums,Marion. The post lady is already fed up with me asking "any plants?"every morning!! As to my celeriacs....when I planted the seeds I'd rush down each morning to see if anything was stirring and when after a few days nothing had happened and being slightly impatient I flung more seeds in and now I am awash with celeriac seedlings far too many to name!! Luckily we have a plant sale in the village soon so I can donate the surplus and encourage the whole community to grow them!! A lesson learned I hope!

what a coincidence!! This morning i received a package of art materials and inside were some leaflets including a spaldings catalogue and there inside were the yellow pelargoniums!! have just logged on now and seen your message.Have already sent my order off!! Thanks for the Celeriac advice..my seedlings are doing well and ive promised them all the poo they could ever want if they will just be strong!! Is it sad to name your seedlings....?

thanks for that happymarion. are they a bit like courgettes in that they like compost to grow on? like the sound of yellow pelargoniums. can i ask where you got them from or if you tell me will you have to kill me!!
