Better than Christmas


By AndrewR


Remember all those catalogues that arrived in early January? All those tempting pictures and mouth-watering descriptions? All those order forms posted off in anticipation?
Well now they’ve come! I think I overdosed on new plants this year but here are the deliveries that have arrived (and been planted) so far – there’s still one to come.

Isn’t it wonderful being a plantaholic?

Great fun! I wish you'd told us what they all are, though, Andrew. I 've only had three double Hellebores, three pink Veronicas and a packet of Acidantheras so far. Lots and lots still to come. Can't wait!

Oh yes Lainedru. I know precisely where they are to be planted at the ordering stage.

Spritz - if I get time, I might list them all but I'm still working flat out to be ready for the group visiting next week. Managed to get all the borders fed today depsite a damp afternoon here.

Argg it's not fair, I also had all of the catalogues but I was under strict instructions not to order anything because we are moving house, I've had to make do with what I've got and scattered some annuals where I have gaps. I did get a couple of sneaky orders in though which have gone unnoticed!!
