Only teasing....well,partially... Sanjy.  Sure you will enjoy your plants.  I guess I lack patience, just a little.  

Anyone done any gardening today?

Hot afternoon.  Got astrantia star of fire moved.  Got astrantia superstar coming too. Intended to divide jumble hole...the best astrantia....but it's starting to flower and will comtinue all summer.  Planted kniphofia Toffee Nosed and mulched.

mulched rest of hellebores, astrantias, astilbes, veronicastrums and heleniums with dried manure. (Lovely aroma in the car )

come, come, come!  Are we gardeners not allowed to voice what we think Brenda?  And Little Ann? It doesnt change anything or hurt anyone.   I've  looked back to see what possible offence could have been caused...there is none.  No bad language, no harsh views and no personal attacks.  Compare to the characters in the election campaign.....  Compare to the soaps on tv.  Compare to the folks on your street.  Compare to. ................

by all means be judgemental and reject the forum but it says more about you than us. (Said In the nicest possible way

Ok sanjy,

do you expect any of those plants to flower this year?  Even next year?  And will you want everything "they" choose for you?

I received plants in 3 litre pots........e.g. Helenium which will flower profusely at full height by mid summer.  I planted it out but I could have divided it into several pieces to secure several good size plants this year.  And I chose the variety.  

I wonder how many of these 48 or 72 "plants" will be wanted ....or will 2 years' time!

The most brash colour schemes, almost, blinding, were the judges' clothing. 

Not really impressed with the gardens.  Too much emohasis on interpretations, meaning, etc.

Hello forkers.

Wet .......warm though.  Plenty of rain overnjght that has turned the garden into a jungle ...........everything looks fresh, cleam green and lush.  Clearance to sun in the next hour. 

Bargain Buy of 2015

A pasty and 4 cream buns for £1 50. 

Quite a few purchases of good sized plants on line not too pricey.

Me too, with exams punkdoc.  ...same witb being a little "pretentious".  I move plants sometimes just a few INCHES to get them RIGHT.  

Many of my plants waiting in pots nave been planted but still a lot to get in.  Because they're in bjggish pots they aren't too urgent.  Then I go and get more plants to add to,the logjam.  Still pondering exactly where today's kniphofia goes but it wont just be pushed in anywhere
