Not great idea to buy big lavendars especially for a hedge.  A 9cm pot or even a 1 litre maximum will produce plants to grow really fast at this time of year.  Get them in asap whilst soil is still moist 

Have you got yours yet?

You can't call my post rubbish Punkdoc.  It was written with sincerity.  I am shocked 

Interesting point do we rank in that list you looked at?   Where is this list?  this is how we can make our minds up.   A list will be a fact to consider.

Oh it's about losing friends's ok!  Now I understand . Friends will be friends no matter what if they are genuine 

as a nation we are not generally liked and for very good reasons.  Time now to sort ourselves out.  our  country is in a mess....we trade with a deficit, we have cut services to people who desperately need them and have no money to properly finance anything.  Someone (naively) said we have prospered since being in the EU.......we are even more in debt folks.  The money saved by leaving the EU can be used to get our own act together. Let's do that

Lou, is there a nursery locally?  Much cheaper and usually much bigger.

i planted 40' plus to edge my veg patch and they cost me very little...cannot actually remember even though it was last autumn ......and I add a couple of freebies and discount. 

Any idea what this is ?

Lou, you would be most welcome 

it has been really warm here again today but even though England can match our temps the cornish people and climate are far, far superior
