My flowering shrub is called choisya ternata. Weather permitting will go out tomorrw and have a proper look to see if anything else is in flower.

Just popped outside and plucked one out bluebell-tiny white flower with 5 petals and grouped in 6 to a stalk. Need to learn to put photo on the web also names of plants.

Guess I'll be at the bottom of the class- looking out all I have is a shrub with white flowers. As I'm still learning not sure of the name of shrub. Indoor cyclamens and plenty of cut flowers which don't count.

Weather awful not venturing out today-not even to the GC.

Economical-artjak that sounds pretty good to me, will work on that angle in winning the husband over!

As its going to be the yr with a special birthday my wishes are endless. My gardening resolution is to read and follow instructions on the seed pkt/ pots as they are there for a reason and not to be ignored. Convince my husband that a greenhouse is a need rather than a want.

Good luck NB2. We only had a few panels blown over but will probably have to replace the whole lot as the other panels look a bit dodgy.

Although I subscribe now-I managed to get 3 yrs worth in pristine condition from free cycle. The gentleman who gave them to me was fab with an admirable garden! I love reading them. I take mine to the hairdressers, it blends in very nicely with Hello and OK mags.

Thanks Hosatfan1

My fellow allotmenteers are great-they can open their garden gate go straight into the plot which means they've been at it for centuries. Actually they have been really helpful and encouraging and yes its a family.Gardening will never be a chore-after a stressful day its very therapeutic and keeps me sane! My plot is a safe haven-no phone away from it all.
