That sounds absolutely wonderful Marion.  Have you ever grown Rogersias?  

Hope we see the pictures next year.

Finish the pond now or in the spring?

Cadge some from other pond owners.  They spread rapidly.

Qqqqqqqquite exciting........

Don't  throw out plants....not decent ones.  Just make new borders.  Shrubs or anything that doesnt hold it's own is discarded.  Old past their sell by date shrubs once removed create nice new planting sites.  Try to replace with new varieties if they are better.

Just's somewhere between the "national hub" and Cornwall.  

Chocs through the post!  My "fix" is  Toblerone......all on its own, that's Toblerone.  I find the large bars taste best

Talking of "fix" I called on someone recently I hadn't seen in a while.   He was growing 3 beautiful plants .....lovely foliage and offered me a potted one.  I declined.  Suffice to say he is the most relaxed, laid back guy you could meet.

I have some nice yellows Stacey.  

But, back to the,important order,has progressed even further towards Cornwall.  Ain't you all excited?  However, calm down will soon be here

Fox poo

Chilli powder.  He doesn't want to cook it Stacey. 

Domt think it's fox droppings on a,though ESP if no smell.  

A spray with jeyes ......allowing it to dry.....on a piece of wood with mesh barrier overnight is worry trying despite the warnings.  It's the smell,of jeyes that should work amd if it's dry,it,shold be fine.  Otherwise you,will be back to square one handy chap(nearly wrote,Andy cap).  I think this will break this foxes routine.

Sounds good fO me 4thPanda.  Just some patience though.  I would pot into bigger pots choosing John innes and just aim for growth for 2014.  

Still best buying in large pots in flower or online with guaranteed colours, as from ashwood and harvington.  (impatience I guess)

My order is now on its way to Cornwall.  I should have kept this secret though cos there may be some serious criminals out there targeting my parcel.

Morning,folks. Sun is coming out now.  Think it will be nice today.  All this talk,of bulb planting makes me want to get some.  Not too keen on winter pansies etc though.  Wallflowers and stocks give so much colour and reliably so. Pansies, violas, etc bit hit n miss for me.  Panolas sound good though.
