Great! It's called Lysimachia atropurpurea 'Beaujolais' and it's on the Sarah Raven website. 

Good news! It's in stock. It should be £5.50 plus £4.95 postage but I've found a voucher code and it gives 10% plus free postage so it's coming in at less than £5! Brilliant! 

Type in the box that says 'Have an offer code'  this:   SAVSP16

I've bought one just now. Perhaps if anyone that wants to join in buys it this week too we can compare how we get on! Love it!  Our own little trial!

Hello folks, 

Just a thought, but would anyone be interested in a little experiment where a few of us order the same plant from the same provider within the same week, and then compare delivery, quality, how well it grows etc....maybe take cuttings or collect seeds too..... could be fun and interesting.

I'm not thinking of spending a huge amount, say £5-£10. 

Just an idea but do let me know if anyone is up for it and if you have any particular plant or supplier in mind.... I think there is 30% off Sarah Raven at the moment.....

Thanks Dyers!  It was only £2! I love the fact that someone else has used and enjoyed it enough, not to throw it away but to donate it for someone else to enjoy.

Got to admit that I love a bit of mum spotted this beauty in the window of a charity shop today and I just had to have it!

It was pretty manky inside but it's washed up a treat! They will have to be some pretty loud flowers to compete with this one! Maybe it'll be better for some nice fruit punch.

I LOVE it!

I use material ones with a spongy padding that attach with velcro straps. I hand washed them last week and they are fine.

What's the difference between....

Thanks Berghill. You know your stuff!

In very simple terms (for my small brain)  how should they be used differently in gardening, or do they do the same thing?

i ask because both are on offer in Aldi!
