Hi Victoria, just revisited this thread.  I bookmark the pages of specialist nurseries and name them with the plant they specialise in this saves me time when Im looking for something specific.

Had my delivery from plantsforshade.com.  All of them were well established, well packaged and in good condition.  I was especially impressed with they Epimedium.  Ive not planted them and they seem to have taken well.

My choccowatsits arrived from T&M, small but lots of roots and in good condition.

Help. Not sleeping.

Yes I have Pauline, Ive also had the stronger Nytol tabs.  I have to say the Herbal didnt work.  Ive often had periods when I suffered symptoms similar to you.  I think mine was stressed based even though I didnt think I was stressed at the time.  I found that breaking the cycle was the best bet.  I took the stronger Nytol tabs for a couple of weeks and then gradually stopped and I was OK.  It would return but not for quite a long time.  The main thing is dont worry about it as it does become a vicious circle, not sleep, worry about not sleep, worrying stops you sleeping etc etc.

Morning everyone, sunny and cloudy here, its a bit chilly but not too bad.  My trip to the garden centre for a bag of compost went a bit haywire.  The following just slipped into the trolly.

Muscari Blue Angel

Narcissus Baby Moon

Taylors Bedding Hyacinths

a fabulous Hellebore Neon Star

Just got back from babysitting so thought I'd pop on and say goodnight.  Sorry to hear about you mum Lesley hope she feels better soon.

Had a good (if expensive) trip to GC today. I only went for a bag of compost to pot up my Chocawotsits.  More details to follow but Im too tired now so off to bed.  Night Night.

My son in law's middle name is Aher, apparently its a family name from Jersey.  When they got married everyone thought the vicar was clearing his throat.

I love looking after them Bekkie but you forget what hard work it is, especially when they feel poorly.  But one big smile through tears and all the tiredness is forgotten.  I love them at this age (14months) because its when they start looking for naughtly things to do.  They wait for you to say no, shake their heads and then do exactly what they arent supposed to do with a big smile on their face.  Eldest granddaughter is going through the ugly duckling stage at the moment.  No front teeth, hair always falling out of ponytails and permanently looking like shes been dragged through a hedge backwards.  Its even worse when shes allowed to choose her own clothes to wear, never mind she thinks she looks absolutely georgeous.
