I remember seeing a driver turn his car in town square and hitting a brand new car yet drove off. A queue of people waiting for the bank to open and lots of others around but nobody did anything.  I gave chase on foot,,much to the embarrassment of my then very young nephew, and stopped the car. got him to leave his written details and I got witness names.  Hero or what?  Ha ha 

people SHOULD stop, hold their hands up and do the right thing.  It annoys me when they don't.  

Hedychium?

Very aggressive here Nut but in a cold place they prob wont be.  After a year their chunky roots had ventured quite widely.  They are good in large pots though.  You can divide them every couple of years and flower seems unaffected.

actually, I gave mine away to someone who has a few acres so I might get a piece of two back to plant in pots.  Had yellow,,orange and white vwrieties.

hope you appreciated my ginger nut joke back there

Gertie, ring the gc immediately and ask them to look at their cctv....agree with Dove about this.  

Prob the selfish toads that did this....and they would have known....will visit gc again.  

Get the number and descriotion of the vehicle and ask at the gc if they will confirm seeing the incident.

(I have history of pursuing such incidents....like a dog with a bone....so my advice is get those so and so's )

lovely blue sky and sun this afternoon and took advantage by planting my "chain" 

KEF, I remember doing that for my mum last year....I just ticked the most severe option every time.  Agreed though that there's little common sense with these things and a whole bunch of frustration

Yes a ginger nut......get it?  

Garderianum I think....had to look it up...but if it's what I grew it had scented flowers and mine were 6' tall.  Looked a little like bamboo.

.......oooo I could use a cup of finest tea now...Typhoo 

well, I know of one on the forum who shares those "tendencies" Tetley.  

It's just that I never just plonk a plant in.....it has to associate with it partner, set it or others or itself off;  colour wise, foliage shape, etc. .??  No?
