Yep A Year on the plot, it's the way I pronounce it.

Also, Jackmanii, for example, I do ee i for the ii.

Saw beechgrove on I player.  Much better than gardeners world.  

Wet, wet wet today. 

Saw my mum in hospital,this evening.   No damage from her stroke at all.  Makes you think though.   Life is so short.  

next season

Makes sense Rose.

I always divide a few daffs after flowering and pot them up.  They they go out in the spring where spaces are and I have a whole lot more .

MrsGarden, it might sound odd but I often push a lawnmower around a chalkmark  around the lawn when I change the edge/shape.  It helps give a feel as well as practical idea as to how the lawn should curve, etc.

Hey, wondered who pinched that!  It's the best scented of the montanas I think.

Yes, I think guinevere is hardy enough. It takes a couple of years to flower ...well, it did for me.....but it's an absolute delight.  

Lavender

Marlene, lavendars won't like it there.  

If your soil is acidic a blue hydrangea could look good there.  

Always best to grow plants that like their situation...they are then healthy and thriving and little trouble.

Very, very nice Dove.  How about a dierama Guinevere to the far edge of that pool?  So you can see its reflection when you sit on that bench?

Totally agree with Bob

Too many people are watering.....over watering....plants right now.  And ESP with small plugs, bare roots etc. that simply cannot deal with all that moisture.  

If in doubt don't water yet.  It's such a temptation to water and hurry up growth etc  but you can't rush plants.
