See you there Aster.  Visit the nursery at Lizard....Croft Common.....but loads around too many to mention but signposted.    From where I am the nearest is a mile away followed by several en route to Helston, for example, and thence more from towards Burncoose.  All different.  All worthwhile.  

Where is my grass?

Right, uninstalled the lot and started again.  Success.  Have my toolbar, smilies and free donuts again

Hiya Lyn
Yes checked and re checked settings, ticked all the boxes, logged out and logged in ....the works. No tool bar unless via Chrome. Chrome has its difficulties too though. It all happened ....seemed fo coincide with avatar etc., "fixes" .......a few days ago. However, if you have toolbar on iPad then it is, for now, perplexing me.
Agree with you about replying through our own experiences you say we can all google stuff. And, if we are mistaken, others will come along and we all learn like that. Different situations, even climate, give us all a better idea how plants grow and thrive/or not.

online is definitely the best but there are many nurseries down here supplying rare, tender and unusual plants.  Walking around one at Cross Common at the Lizard for example is like a child in a sweetshop.

popping in to Burncoose Nurseries tomorrow as I pass by to pick up some ordered stuff

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Not sure what the temperature is out there but it's feeling pretty warm.  Uncovered the temporary polytunnel to check on plants there and will keep it uncovered for couple of hours.  Planted out potted alliums.
