Another Parcel!


Parcel arrived this morning..what have i ordered now? i thought! Turned out to be six trailing Verbena, pink, white and purple, got to get them into pots and then when bigger into the baskets for summer.

then i decided to have a trip to the garden centre i needed some more compost and they were selling 3 bags for a tenner so off i went and boy i think everyman and his dog had decided to go too!! anyway got the compost then i thought i’ll just have a quick look round, i know fatal isn’t it? Ended up with a Clematis called ‘Barbara Dibley’, suitable for pots it says so it can go in the tub on archway opposite side to the Climbing Rose.

The lilies are coming up nicely they are ‘Pisa’ and ‘Tiger Woods’,

My friend gave me some dwarf runner beans today so i have those to put into pots tomorrow, too late now cuppa time got some seedlings that need potting on so will be busy tomorrow weather permitting!!!

Good day for you! Nice to get parcels - and more, too!

The postman brought a pack of 10 Bacopa today, and I got them potted up safely. I'm running out of greenhouse space already! HELP!!

Lovely to receive parcels, especially when you're not sure what they contain. The clematis looks lovely (I looked at website too!) and will be great when flowering.

Barbara Dibley is a lovely clematis. I had one in a pot for many years when I lived in the old house.
