Black Friday bargains

Posted: 28/11/2014 at 17:08

popped into new local Asia store this morn for the advertised Black Friday prices.  What a let down.  

get any bargains anywhere folks?  Online or locally?  

Oh, got cheaper petrol today though.  Paid a lot less.  Didn't put as much in though! 

Anything on your Wish List?

Eucomis sparkling burgundy is excellent.  I divide regularly and now have few good clumps.  Better in drier soil I think where they grow more sturdily with better foliage colour.  The books say moisture but they then get top heavy 

Re polemoniums,  Stairway to Heaven is the best variegated sort (for me) but all polemoniums seem to be short lived. 

Share Salino's liking for helenium rauchtopas.....all heleniums so far.  I could get addicted to them quite easily.  

dwarf raspberries

Ekay, I considered dwarf varieties but no choice not convinced.  Interested to hear others' views though

they seem to spread even more than normal varieties .......more canes I guess but over a wider area.  Not sure pot grown will really be abundant producers.  Maintenance will be the same.  Also bending lower?  

Currently don't grow raspberries ...need new site....but I would grow both summer and autumn varieties.

Salino, two points.  I am proud of my Coppershine.  It is in a prominent position on my drive and is often commented upon.    Secondly I assumed it was available still and had no reason to consider its possible demise. 

I recommend ...often passionately.....simply because if I'm happy with a plant I have I know others prob will be too.  No arrogance or boasting or similar.  As it is.  I am what I am and quite like me really  

I have already offered cuttings next spring....I have another produced from a cutting....and it adds to the options of the questioner, I think.


To deck or not to deck.....!

Edd, worthy of garden jokes thread 

been out and missed return call from bressimgham.  If they say I'm right....100% convinced though.....I will claim bragging rights forever. If wrong, can that be?, I will go into hiding
