MrsG, what about a nice camelia?  Ok, not a rose but either in bud or in flower now so a lovely looking plant to have.  £20 should get you a nice plant.  Or, a dwarf rhododendron or azalea which, again, will be in bud. 

Im sure your brother will be happy with whatever you choose. 

Spring is getting closer.

Morning everyone

Quiet far.  Think we escaped lightly overnight but Wales and other areas are now being hammered. 

punkdoc hope the water has not got worse.  

Times like this when gardening matters are not too important but a glance at hellebores do lift the spirits.

Just watched a special newsnight with Jeremy paxman about the flooding.  

Although preventative action was inadequate it is clear that when nature roars like this we can only really try to cope as best we can. We see these things across,the world and possibly felt we would always be safe from them.  People helping one another in their communities was good to see though.  

I think many people will remember the winter  of 2014 though

Hiya mike

In 3 years hypericum.....this prob being hidcote ......a lot of growth would have been made and a lot to then cut back.  an annual cut is needed for best flowerimg and for easy manegement.  So disagree a little with you there. 

However, I enjoy your posts amd always look forward to your comments Mike.

Hopefully one more storm and then quieter.  

Punkdoc, fingers and everything else crossed the water does not rise further.  Like it when you said plant losses can be replaced and an opportunity to plant something else will exist.  

Hmmmmm, like those pics of food. Looks tasty stuff

I read once that you need to eat lots of protein......I choose to say anything...because it makes your metabolism system function better.  Eat more lose weight
