But Mike, it's the only time I can show off when I use latin names!  

But using Latin names ensures we get the exact plant we want.  So they are useful to know and learn

Could I suggest you add some mushroom composf to your hellebore planting mix and as a mulch too. Hellebores like a little lime...

Used to get fish blood n bone from local allotment stores.  However they have closed now.  Have to look elsewhere.  Will look online but postage costs may be high

Don't forget perennials for,height too......delphiniums, veronicastrums, tall agastaches, acteas, foxgloves, cannas, tall grasses, verbena bonariensis, tall dahlias.  I have loads of colour from tall growers in the summer.

Busy makes great sense.  If someone posts something that's suspicious just ignore it. We have to do that in our lives anyway....we don't always get on with everybody.  Even the spammers don't bother the morning, for example, if the spammers are there I just skip past them. Easy peasy.    I pick up on every post and comment......wisely .....on those that appeal to me.

I have no idea if Brumbull will go away soon but we have to deal with it.  

Changing a thread title is not the way...sorry fidget.  We will have to change it time and time again.  There have been 4 FORKERS threads so far.  I like hello is not the cause of the recent issues.  The troubles started before same character too.

Its funny writing this stuff knowing mr Brumbull is reading it.  Once a friend to us all, apparently, he shows a spiteful side to hurt people he doesn't really know.  Ironically he introduced some unique threads.....ah well!  Cel le vie.  I for  one cannot begin to understand that.  But it's just a forum.....nothing scary or life threatening.  

Lets enjoy it it comes, day by day

ordering plants online

Think dave has covered it but I order lots online from excellent supplierrices reasonable prices.

Bought once or twice from eBay but never plants.

Liseals, why not get back to us when you know what plants you want and where you think you might buy them ? 

Beware of offers that seem too good to be true.  They prob are
