I want to grow again

1. Nothing really, have got all the things I like/used to like.

2. Sorry Verd, loathe them, except in their natural habitat on a moor. Too wishywashy for me, I prefer bright colours.

Decisions, decisions, it's a hard life!

Those plants look lovely GG, what a bargain. Nothing as cheap as that here, unless they're already dead or dying!

Evening Brumbull and GG.

Sounds like you've both been busy today. I piddled around a bit this morning and finally got off my chuff late afternoon to dig out the biggest dahlia. It was in a bed where I want to plant a couple of roses, but will do that tomorrow. The dahlia tuber is almost a foot across, will have to split it in Spring or take cuttings.

Sorry your offer wasn't accepted Brumbull, will you up it a bit?

Still got problems with Forum

It's probably been a least a couple of years since I posted on here.  I spent a while today answering a garden design query.  When I submitted my reply I was asked to log in.  Of course I couldn't remember my password so went through the procedure to re-set it only to find my reply didn't post and vanished.  What a waste of time!

This has happened to me a few times too, also on other sites, very annoying!. Now, I make sure I "copy" what I've written so that I can "paste" it once I've logged in. Try it!

Morning Brumbull

Glad to hear you've found a nice property, hope your offer gets accepted and your old property is sold quickly. By the way, just to be nosey, what business are you in?

Have a safe trip to the Midlands and greetings to Albert.

Before planting your raspberries, you should also remove the stony ground and replace it with proper humus. Your raspberries won't be happy there otherwise.

Funny you should say that, nut, I thought 4 looked like a violet as well!

overwintering cannas

Monty Don showed that on Friday night. Cut them down to about 8 inches, put in an old bucket, cover with old compost or leaf mould and put in a cool dry place, no light needed. Water very occasionally, just so they don't driy out completely. Although I must say, I just let my dry out and soaked them in Spring for an hour or two before planting, they came up big and strong.
