Tracey, you can only join the hellebore club if you send one of them to me.  Those  are the rules  See? 

I was tempted by some hellebores ....candy love.....yesterday.  Bit different to Lenten roses.  I can see myself yielding to temptation tomorrow....I have to drive past the GC in the morning.  

Apart from the wind it's not been a bad day here.  Got some potting up done.  So far everything looks fine with no winter losses so space is limited.  Got to start serious plantIng soon

No wouldn't use aluminium either. ,polystyrene for me too.  Most shops, stores would have polystyrene packaging to give away I think.  Or local GC as in broken polystyrene trays etc.

Music in the Garden

Don't really take music into the garden much. ,I'm a bit of a restless so amd so and always see something to do that has to be done fast.  Now, music in the car is nice.  Years ago music very, very loud in a convertible in the sun and at speed was 100 years later I use doves Zimmer........
