Very. agree on price of GC plants. Luckily we have one local nursery which sells good stuff at bargain prices. 

Salvia Amistad is a wonderfully showy but class act. Did you know Amistad is Spanish for "friendship".? How appropriate as a give-away plant.

It was supposed to have rained today, but we haven't had a drop! I dug over a friend's very stony bank and planted it with baby buddlieas and hardy geraniums. She wants a natural look under the trees. Should look great later, and a good solution for this spot. Pretty flowers just wouldn't do.

Primrose, my hostas are always outside, usually in a fairly shady spot. Because i was having a new terrace built they were moved to a sunnier spot and I think this has brought them on with the recent warm weather. They are now back in their home.

Frank, the trick to encouraging your bird to leave is to wait till dusk and put a light outside to which it should fly. I did this when a bird was trapped in my house, and no amount of chasing it towards open windows worked. The light trick worked immediately.

Have just seen the results of our Plant Sale... best since 2007. Our members are really supporting us well. 

Thanks Gg for the pictures. The orange tulips are Abu Hassan, which I have wanted to grow for some time. shall use them again. Rest of garden is looking a little immature after lots of renovations.  7 weeks to opening.

Talkback: How to harvest sweetcorn

They are much better microwaved for about 3 mins., turned over, mw for 3 more mins. Lot less bother than boiling . Keep flavour and scrunch.
