Agree with B3, it would be fitting if you used plants your mum enjoyed.  Nice sentiments Steve  

a garden is so much better with a plant or two remembering our loved ones

Belinda, my local Wyevale's prices are very high.  Taylors would supply bigger plants for a lot less I think

Yes Philippa....but had I taken a photo from a different angle there would be no clouds or if taken earlier   It's the feeling Philippa!  It feels warm.  No wind.

That's great derekp.   Pleased for you.  What a thoughtful gift from your family 

we take our health for granted don't we?  I'm not sure we still make allowances for people not fully able.  

Enjoy your garden

Have you got yours yet?

The weather in Cornwall can be so different....the west is so much milder than the east.  in the Bay here we miss a lot of the rain.  It was supposed to be heavy rain for an hour or so today but we had drizzle for a short time.  

Rub your hands in glee Keen......I am cooling down with a lager.

As with everything there will be those who will sing T & M's praises but most of us think T & M are a lousy company.  

Belinda, get back to T & M and say you are not satisfied and demand a refund.  say you have mentioned this on a garden forum.  If you get no satisfaction ask to speak to the manager...firmly but respectfully say their product is " not fit for purpose" .

sometimes you need to be resolute....you will win in the end. 

Better to receive a first class clematis from, say Taylors, than to get 3 rubbish plants.  

Never yet have I failed to get a refund or replacement for anything not up to scratch
