Hiya Edd

Hmm! Well they were small....very small....but they grew on well enough. 2 plants arrived in poor state and replaced.

Looking back, it must have been 2 years ago now when I last ordered.

Tracey, I grow euphorbia silver swan.....delightful plant in and out of flower and evergreen.  Euphorbia rubra....blackbird........has rich purple black foliage (I remove flowers) and again evergreen.  

Cornus liking sun?  Well my garden varies from fairly sunny to very sunny and they thrive here....dogwoods...but the soil is good.  Two varieties I grow are Aurea (yellow leaves all summer and red stems) and Elegantissima (green and white leaves amd red stems) 

I grow 3 euonymous.....emerald n gold, gaiety and (bigger) aureus. All delightful evergreens.

Amongst the heucheras Berry Smoothy and Obsidian are my favourites. 

Sure your garden will look spectacular Tracey

Hello dorkers

Firstly, Bill......do  what you feel ??ou would like to do.  Here we sympathise, empathise  and feel for ??ou so if you post your son's letter it would be nice. My sister died at 32 having a young baby amd a young son ...she wrote letters (and mini books) for all of us.  I have shown mine to some.....they were lovely letters, strangely strong for someone then so physically weak.  The letters are precious and priceless and perfect. 

Will send the sunshine to you guys in England to cheer you up. Sunny again here....so far.

Rubber, not sure they will do well at all in pots.  

I think clematis Montana, honeysuckle, summer jasmine, or climbing roses would be ok in large pots

Has a nice meal this evening until a mother stood by amd watched her child be sick in the restaurant.  She then walked off with him.  It was left to me to mark off the area with a chair or two, etc.  I must be getting tired in my old age as once I would have expressed my opinion loud amd proud.  

(did get free desserts though when I told the waiter .......look!  It's food that counts in life )

Back to wet windy weather now  After a lovely day
