tradescantia are a love hate thing with me.  they are lovely then get battered, need supporting, snails love em.  however, a couple of discreet supports before they reach full growth solves the battered bit and a nightly trek with the torch solves the mollusc bit.  theres a yellow variety with magenta flowers....sounds ok but is nauseating.  sorry if anyone is growing it

bookertoo....Im getting rid of it.  lovely and well behaved for few years but now its exerting its authority.  dont want any now..better things.  Agree that it eventually does get a grip in its own time

evening all

damp all day.  someones pinched my sunshine...think it may have been fairygirl!

however dry now with chinks of blue sky.  garden has grown, plants filling in, with that rain

my anemone wild swan is now flowering too but how different from previous years.  my runner beans are barely 3' tall ..normally they would be 7' and needing pinching out at the tops.  Ive even been picking beans by mid June too.  climate warming!!!

tina, nice to have our own space at times

My experience of "customer service" .

hiya jatnikapyar

touch wood I dont currently have any difficulties with bad customer service...I think Ive got to know who is good and who is bad.  surprised you mention Brookside and Crocus though.  Havent used them much...just once for Brookside..but plants have been delivered on time and in excellent condition.  Maybe if I had to complain I would have had a different story to tell.

I am like a dog with a bone though...ultimately I get good recompense for bad service.  have to be stubborn and persistent and speak to the manager.  Jatnikapyar, just hang in there and say you have this forum watching developments

What's your Flower of the moment?
