Flabbergasted....thought I would have a heart attack

In all seriousness, some of the worst driving is around a local primary school.  The majority of drivers are women and they are BAD.  I dont know why but increasingly bad drivers both male and female.

Peat free compost

Most composts now are awful.  I bought a few bags from my local asda store .....not good at all.  

For temporary ...seed sowimg,potting on before planting out, etc.......usage these composts will do a job.

for more permanent jobs john innes is the answer.

for summer displays I mix in dried manure and it helps give body and nutrients.

i think grobags will be just the same Ivyhouse 

big plants or little

A 3 litre plant should be perfect for planting now. Perhaps a 5 litre if you can.  A 12 litre plant is a big no from me.

Well,,that's it.......will get trilliums to plant next to some hellebores.  Rich deep soil and I can create some shade.  Womder why those three leafed three petalled plants are called Trillium.  Any ideas folks ?
