Love my grasses Philipa and this carex (I know, not a grass) looks excellent.

For Stacey and others absent at mo...

Wishing Stacey a happy Christmas and hoping she is winning her fight against her illness.  And we need her advice soon about growing chilis.

Philippa, no I don't grow this one but I have already selected it for the new year having checked it out over past few weeks. 

it seems to be pretty adaptable in not needing wet conditions as many carex do but I have earmarked a position in sun but in good soil.  Your South facing site would be my preferred position Philippa.  Wouldn't add manure.

Oh KEF, leave OH alone.  It's only a silly dancing about prog. 

I feel sick as a pig. Missing out on my tea cos I was forced to eat choc marzipan all afternoon. 

Wherever it was said earlier I agree with sentiments expressed that you all are a pretty good bunch here.  Happy xmas folks
