Dwarf Buddleia Buzz - how easy to buy?

Posted: 03/03/2015 at 20:49

Matt, be confident.  Online buying of plants is easy.  If you want, decide on your online. Supplier but ask us first. 

Most of my plants are on line buys and no regrets so far

What's flowering in your garden today?

Clearly......spring has come 

cold callers

Ex directory too but still get these calls....occasionally.  

My response is to sing the ying tong song, or ask if they would like a song.  or I act dumb and ask them to repeat, say pardon,  etc etc.  

However, you can also say "if you ring again I,will bill you because these are unsolicited calls" some cases this is effective.

10 degrees Punkdoc?   More like 15 to 17.  Spring is coming

If it's still looking reasonable, take cuttings asap.  They should root fast.  I grow osteo yellow voltage ...still flowering ...but cuttings rooted from autumn will provide replacement plants for this year.

Punk doc, just got an Audi A1 ...for my niece.  She could have had some great deals on Clio, Peugeot, Citroen, Seat, etc but  had her heart set on A1.  It is a joy to drive and such a classy looking vehicle.  

been a pretty good day weather wise...plenty of sunshine, the odd short lasting shower and the sun was warm.  

Potted on a couple of delphiniums that arrived in the post.  

Got treated to lunch today....always good to eat for free.
