Lyn, they vary from 32cm to 40 cm widths.

Hiya Lyn, no snow here but further East they're having some.  In fact it's quite nice right now

Bekkie, oh yes!  If you have a genuine complaint only.  I've met a few chancers who try anything but they're nearly always found out.  My feeling is if you're paying agreed value for a service or product and find the service/product not as it should be then you should complain.  Complain too  not only for the loss but also for compensation for the "injury" .  And never feel embarrassed about it either

It's is cold but doesn't really feel like it.  Prob 5 but no wind and some "warm" sunshine

I am annoyed!   My EE Bill was £75 more than it should be.  Got it sorted plus a little compo but it doesnt change this month's bill.  What is it with phone companies?  With anyone else I,would have been repaid immediately into my bank account but my refund will be credited against future bills. (can't really complain too much I's my compo claim last month that confused them a little ). For all you guys who don't complain about anything, make it your policy to complain and be compensated 

bite to eat then I'll move a couple of plants.....maybe even sunbathe ......

might get couple of plants in if I get chance later.  Ground is workable here

stay safe if it's icy ice in some places locally

Hey Woody.  That is so sad for you. no matter what age the loss of a parent is not easy is it?

Lizzie, agree with corydallis if the soil holds moisture but It does die down in summer.

verbena Rigida is a superb blue, blue salvias (patens is good if you dig up tubers over winter) uliginosa is a wonderful blue and white long flowering tall plant great for wet soils, aster frikartii Monch should do well there as will aster little Carlow.  Scabious butterfly blue too.  Anchusas.  Brunerra hadspen cream has forget me not blue,flowers in spring on variegated foliage.  Violas for purple and blue flowers for ages.  Gentians too?  I think meconopsis baileyii...the blue Tibetan poppy....will be worth a try too.  What about Malva  alba for white?  Anemone wild swan too. geranium Orion is a good blue variety as is black beauty.

I use a Bosch cordless mower. it's quiet,,lightweight,,stripes the lawn and beautifully manageable.  I have 2 lawns of medium size and a small area of rough grass. Mome charge is sufficient to cut these twice.

however, I cut lawns twice a week so the grass is never overly long, the ground is level and I cut when grass is dry ....dampish is ok.

Limelight gets to be a pretty big plant yvieestevie and, as I understand it (only just planted one) will flower from July right through to late autumn.

white at the back is good too......I have a white Buddleia behind berberis atro nana that looks effective and a solanum album behind physocarpus Diablo
