One night Tom the nightwatchman dreampt the plane his boss was due to catch crashed and everyone was killed.

worried about this Tom informed him his boss who decided not to take that flight.  As Tom said the plane crashed with no survivors.

grateful for this warning Tom received a thank you of £100 and the sack.  

Why was Tom sacked?

The Gingernut Cover-up ?

Helen......I share your alarm, dismay and horror.

I went through this phase a while back with jaffa cakes.  I wondered....no, worried.....that a shortage of jaffa oranges was the reason for a lack of supply in the shops.

.........it was ok! supplies of jaffas were soon back to normal 

         This should give you hope that gingernuts will soon be back in those stores so you can, once again, enjoy your cuppa 

meanwhile please accept my sincerest regards for your (hopefully only temporary) loss

My local gc supplies lots of perennials in 9 cm pots.  good value.    They are all bursting to grow

Buying 9cm plants now

Peanuts....it's what i do now, buy herbaceous perennials in 9cm,pots now

firstly, water them.

give them a couple of weeks then pot on.  I repot several times so that by mid spring they will be in 2 litre pots.....often in 3 litre pots.  They will soon start growing FAST.  Yes, they will flower this year....mine do.  I do this for lupins, delphiniums, lychnis, malva, etc., etc.

can you cloche them or make a sort of polythene tunnel?  At least cover with fleece for a few weeks.
