Done

Have the photos been superimposed?

Tootles, touching up doesn't even cover it.  Add the hype that goes with those pictures and you have something really, really, REALLY special..  And at BARGAIN prices too. And be sure to HURRY.    

(If you had those (enhanced) plants in your garden they would blind you anyway)

A 5 mile band of the heaviest slow moving rain I've seen for some time is wreaking havoc down here.  No sign of it easing either. And loads more forecast.  

In view of this I will be cutting the grass and fine tilthing the veg patch .....NOT 

Perennials in 9 cm pots.....go for 'em now

Peanuts.....from a drowning Cornwall ......just tip plants out and have a look.  Most of them will gain from potting up immediately. loosen any tight roots.  "On a roll" indeed 

I know you asked Tetley....she will kill me now......but cosmos is best pinched out to make bushy....avoiding their tendency to "bolt" .  I pinch ...take tips out...of cosmos several times

Tetley, impressive. You resisted the devil and........oh no!  You succumbed . Those iris have now tempted me too...hope you left some for me.  Esp after Blue Sapphire . No need to starve yourself....you actually SAVED money by chopping those 3 litre  perennials 

peanuts, I divide a few lupins every year in summer.  No, lupins are perennials but, because they flower so profusely (they can do 3 flushes if fading spikes are removed quickly) they decline after 3 years or so. 

9cm perennials bought a week ago have already grown considerably.  I expect to repot in 2 or 3 weeks

THESE NEW PART TWO THREADS NORA

My point Lyn.  That is exactly what will happen and every thread deemed to be too long will be replaced with  "by nora".  I think some have misunderstood to beliieve it is about arrogance on my part. We might just as well post a thead anonymously.  

I associate sweet peas with David, worries,,etc with KEF and the list goes on

I see no reason why orignal thread authors are not retained ....
