Thanks Fairygirl. I'll do just that. Hope you get lots of lovely flowers on yours.

Clematis

Hi there,

well I managed to resist and left the clematis in pots. They grew a bit, but no flowers which I guess is to be expected.  Should I pot them on into even bigger pots do you think or just leave them until they die back, over-winter them in a cold frame and plant on the garden next spring?

Do you think your hellebore will flower again when it's supposed to?

Eeeek! I know they are harmless, and a lovely sign of healthy wildlife.... but the thought of a snake of any kind scares the living daylights out of me!  I'm a real animal lover so would NEVER ever hurt anything but I reckon you'd hear my scream in timbooooktoo!!  Good luck GG. You are one brave chick!

Thanks. I'll definitely give them a go. 

These were only £1.50 from the local Saturday morning market. I think they'll be a regular feature from now on.

fairygirl - what a lovely thing to say...thank you!! 

Other than sweet peas, are there any other strongly scented cut flowers?

Eeeeh by gum, that sounds very tasty!  I found a recipe for a beetroot and chocolate cake.... I'll report back at the weekend. 

Talking of the sherbert, I wonder if there is such a thing as beetroot wine??
