cost of entrance to gardening shows

Posted: 25/04/2012 at 08:10

I've been to hampton Court twice and loved it, but even as an RHS member, it ain't cheap!  Especially if you factor in the cost of petrol, food, drink etc.  And thats all before the plants have taken your fancy and you find yourself handing over more money.  I would never go to Chelsea, purely because of the crowds.  My idea of hell!  Also, the coverage is so good and plentiful on the Beeb, that I'd never get to see so much in person.  I went to the Losley show on Friday.  Very small (no show gardens), but only £3.00 entrance, and very enjoyable.  I intend to do some Yellow Book visits this year, and make more use of my RHS & National Trust membership, which means I get free entry.  If this bloomin weather improves!

April in Your Garden

Koala's right Winter, no need to be sad.  See it as a new planting opportunity.  You can grow all sorts on a south facing fence, and new space in a bed.

All sound very organic with you Inka, and you're putting lots of goodness into the ground conditions you have to cope with. I'm with Koala, and love your garden, postion and outlook. Luckily, the people before us, landscaped the garden and must have put tons and tons of compost and top soil into the beds, as the area beyond the gates, and in the ditches is pure clay.  You can dig it up and fashion pots there and then!

Oh, just seen Jo's news on the other board.  Poor love.  What a time She's having. So sad.

 Excellent!  I would like to have heard & seen that Geoff .  Seeing all those stuffed shirts and the presenter acting as if they've never heard swear words before, and that the general public are so ttteeerrrriiibbblllyyy shocked by such things these days. Ridiculous.

I could opt for Chamomile tea Kate, but as that Worzel looking guy, on The Fast Show, used to say  'Today I is mostly eating.......'  CHOCOLATE!

Pretty plant Rain.  I think you can split it.

Can anyone help me identify whether this is a weed or a baby seedling?

My Cherry Brandy Rudbeckia plugs are quite furry, so I really don't think it's them.  I have some Echinachia coming up, which looks very similar to your sprouting plant.  It's pink, but I can't remmber the exact name.  I'll try to remember to take a look and come back to you.  Might be wrong though

Talkback: Tulips

Posted: 24/04/2012 at 12:56

Shame that your Tulips are not what you wished to purchase. To be honest, I've bought from various suppliers, that I do, in general, trust, and had problems.  I've had various packs of bulbs and plants, that turned out be NOT what I'd ordered, or NOT what was printed on the packaging, or within the catalogue.  On each occasion, I have called the supplier, explained the situation, and they have either replaced, with the correct goods, or refunded my money.  So even our 'trusted' suppliers make mistakes.
