My hellebores haven't been that good so far. I think maybe it's because I over crowd in summer and that get completely covered. That said, I never feed them so maybe that's why.

Hope so Mark. I usually use Unwins but they've been a bit hit and miss over the last couple of years.

Me too Becky. I always cram things in and then regret it later! 

Ive bought all sorts. Larkspur, zinnias, scabiosa, verbena, echinops, orlays, alyssum, dahlia, didiscus, antirrhinum, cosmos, Iberis, sweet peas and acrodinium.... I'm going to plant where my spuds were last year as the spuds weren't very good because I grew them two years on the trot in the same bed.

I just love the idea of fresh flowers from the garden in the house without stripping the beds at the front of the house.

Oooh happy days! Finished work early today and it's Friday!! Yahoo!

Im going to have a go at a cut flower patch or two this year. Am giving up two raised beds of 1m2 that I normally use for spuds and other veg.

Inspired by Gardeners World (Rachel DT I think) who showed one last year.

Is anyone else having a go? Anyone done this themselves who can offer any tips?

Thanks muchly.
