Where to buy in Wiltshire

Yet........   They are likely to and maybe you are lucky pansyface.

a neighbour has one in his front garden and now has it suckering 40' away.  Another removed one and has suckers all over his lawn.    Ok if you want orange/red sticks popping up everywhere 

When I first started gardening I planted this.  A visitor, a horticulturalist as it happens, warned me to take it out.  It had been in for a matter of weeks.  I am glad I did. 

We can only advise from our own experiences.  Not always right but I learned an awful lot from people in the early days.   Those asking for advice can then make informed decisions based on further research I do myself

Hiya's that for timing?

it is actually quite nice here.....back from a walk with the dog almost to the beach and it is windy.  Some strong gusts.  Here in the garden it is just a breeze.  Not complacent I'm sure Barney will roar in another hour or so .  

Cut grass and cut down another Amistad despite having plenty of flowers.  However, I like to tidy everything up now.....Amistad would prob flower on and off during the winter but I want the seasonal stuff to boss.

go to Egypt if you want to Hosta.  These terrorist attacks will take place anywhere prob a new area every time to spread the fear.  Ditto the footie tonight.  It could be Edinburgh whilst all eyes are focussed on Wembley.  The terrorists are already here in numbers I think....

Sandyboy....THINK AGAIN.

Those autumn colours are attractive but short lasting.  The problems you are likely to have with it will last for years

most people here will not grow this plant....for good reason
