not best thing to do right now but you will prob be ok.  It's the new growth that might result that's the real problem because it is more vulnerable to frost.  

Online plant suppliers?

Jools,,used gardening express once.  Would not use them again. perhaps you were just lucky.

there is a thread about good online suppliers .....I use several.  Online suppliers are far better than gc' can get exactly the plants you want.  Gc's usually stock the standard fayre and their prices are often very,,very high now.  Check out local nurseries too

Philippa, you are right.  3 weeks and then the mild mid winter comes heralding an early warm spring heralding a scorching summer.......

cut grass again.  It hasn't stopped growing.  Potted up a few alliums.  Swept up a few leaves.  Breezy but spells of sunshine and fairly far.  Forecast saying rain and strengthening winds. 

I think my garden has blown away !!!

Laura, often the wind does do just that so when you see a pile sweep them up.  

I cut my grass today and in the process the mower picked up leaves etc.  

Sad day......
