I'm here too 

Enjoy your jelly babies Panda   I'm staring at a box of liquorice all sorts wondering how to get to them without anyone knowing I've opened the box.  Maybe cut the tape, gently empty 3 or 4....or more......then tape it again.  Foolproof?  It's not cos I'm greedy it's more a devillish challenge

Agree with ??ou BLEEPBLEEP.

Tubers ......corms.....have a year already behind them. Not many of us want hundreds of begonias.

Quick Dahlia question

Dahlias can and do rot over winter.  Prob a slug was dining well on an already rotting dahlia.  

Today I feel so happy....

Young gooseberry plant - should the leaves fall off in winter?

Hiya rookie

Growing on a leg means having the main stem clear of shoots for a length of 20 to 40 cm.  it means more air circulation and prevents branches rooting into the soil.  Just remove branches too close to the soil and rub out any buds there too. None of this is crucial but it does make for a healthier bush amd that classy case shape.
