pop them on your local freecycle group, hopefully they will go to a likeminded green fingered person, and maybe could establish a friendly plant swapping friendship. We can but dream heh?

Last time I went (2 or 3 years ago) it rather seemed to be more about furniture and equipment than gardens and plants.. Im with Sweetpea - if it was free fine but its like paying to go into a showroom in the current form.

cant imagine it being any better now then. probably why they throw the freebie offer to access the good food show too. I'll go to the malvern show and see if I can get tickets any cheaper, where there's a will, there's a way!

Oh wow! Someone who is local to me! There's a post on here about where we all are, and there's a distinct lack of folk in the Worcestershire area. In fact I make up the entirety of Worcestershire and Birmingham on the map... you basically pop a note on the map saying where you are, if you aren't already on there. Closest folk to me are in Bristol area.

Ghostmaster maybe? A hosta expert should help me out soon!

I'm all for second chance plants, alas, too far from me... That and I haven't the foggiest what they are. Top one looks like a Hosta to me!

oooh foxgloves can still be sown? I would quite like some down at the lottie, down the bottom in my 'wildlife' bit. So much to learn!

I'd like to grow from seed next year if it's possible! They're striking. I too only have the one, but it's not an issue, I have thin strips of soil rather than proper borders so it doesn't really matter having just the one, plus I have it next to a dianthus of the same colour that sort of works... in my mind at least!

We're a fan of the complete gardeners manual by DK books. I've an old book of flowers with hand drawings, telling you what plants like specific soils, how best to grow, which like shade and so on. Very useful if I actually took notes, only I tend to go to the GC with a 'if it's pretty and reduced I'll take it' mentality.

Any ideas what this is before it flowers
