to get plants,you should have seen his car today,like a moveable greenhouse,we went to cattrick boot fair and i got tons of plants,4 hosta,s and fully grown too,2 quid each,another sambuca 1 pound eh,montana reubens a pound and a tray of 20 seedlings of i dont know what,i will find out for you all,one is a daisy and lupins yet again(got to stop the lupin thing)for 4 pound,and then got my first roses for the scented garden for mum all climbers……
Ena Harkness…sultry red
High Hopes…delicate pink
Zephirine Drouhin…magenta
the zephirine smells out of this world and i got it for mum as her name is irene and its nearly her name,oh and a hanging basket of petunias and lots of pinks for scent and a white lavender called edelweiss white.

'Stopping the plant buying ' - I don't believe you lol. That's something I cant do either.

Well there you go then. lol

You must be feeling pleased with yourself, I would be. Were the roses named/tagged? only I have 'High Hopes' and it's a beautiful deep red.! A word of caution about plants from 'other' peoples gardens, keep a close look-out for pernicious weeds that arrive in the soil. Fully grown Hostas £2 each now that's a bargain!
