This forum is by far the best place for advise

just made my 1st ever hanging baskets

If you can unplant it then why not get some pansies or viola and plant it up with these for now. I got a tray of 20 tiny viola for £1.40 earlier in the week in B&Q. They also had larger pansies which could be planted into the basket now very cheap.

Best and worst

Worst having to move all my pots and clean up under them.

Garden girl. I have put Malva seeds in envelope for you- anything else you want before I send them off? Only one of my Hebe cuttings is still growing so would appreciate a couple more. Also some Rosemary would be good thank you.

I have just a couple of weeks ago found that Newhaven, East Sussex where I live has a gardening club which meets once a month. The next town on Seaford also has one. So if there does happen to be anyone on here who lives nearby then I can give you address to join.
