    Went to the Garden Centers this morning for some snow in summer and London Pride all the GC didn't have any. I got socked through but found the reduce section in one of them and three items just well sort of fell of the selves into my basket. Freesia Double blend, Agapanthus " Lilly of the Nile and a big clump of Dahlia's "Purine all at 50% off.

    Take plenty of bags and money ! Resistance is futile.
    I am envious  :)
    PS Will you be posting photos @Yviestevie, just so that l can suffer even more ?

    I'm sure I will.  Maybe I'll just take photos instead of buying any plants :D

    Well having vowed I wouldn’t place any more online orders, somehow I managed to order twelve achilleas last night. Three Terracota and Nine Safran. I only needed two or three more Safran to bump up an existing patch, but the postage charge covered up to twelve plants. I just couldn’t control myself. Shameful.

    Well I'm back from the Malvern show and I now need to buy two pots.  One for Hydrangea Runaway Bride and the other for Hydrangea Fireworks (Blue).  I also have to find space for Geum Eden Valley Angel, Tiarella Raspberry Sundae and Centaurea Joyce.  I could have spent a lot more but a) couldn't afford it and b) couldn't carry anything else.  Note to self 'no more garden shows this year'

    @Yviestevie  Tiarella Raspberry Sundae is so, so lovely. Was sold out online so I got two Pink Skyrockets instead which arrived today.
