NEC,Plant supports....


Went Gardeners World yesterday,very lucky with the weather,spent more than I wanted as usual. And Sharnford I KNOW what I said.Two more to add to my growing collection Heuchera Mahogany and Hucherella Golden zebra, 3 more clematis…had my first lovely white flower from Marie Boisselot,(out of my 4) this morning.Bought 9 great plant supports,resisted them other years because I thought they were expensive and was worried they may get"lifted"from the open side of my house where all my tall plants are,but they work a treat and have lifted my flattened delphiniums,poppies,aquilegias etc….got soaked shoving them in but plants look SOOO much better,and I will now be prepared next year and get them in earlier.Anyone else go Gardeners world?seems to be less exibits this year, one man where I bought a 2 tier pot stand from,was telling me it cost him £9000 for his stand outside,I’m amazed how they make their money,he was saying the Chelsea show was more profitable for him. Always enjoy the day lots of interesting things to see, lots of tasters in the Good Food part of it.We have already started a list for next year….better start saving (:0)

I'm pleased you enjoyed. Golden Zebra is beautiful isn't it. I've got one too, but bought it a few yrs ago in a GC
