"A Mishmash of Colour"


Hi just logged into my account and found the saved draft of a blog I had started writing some time ago . If memory serves me right I was taken ill while I was adding photos so managed to save before having a few days in Hospital. I was unable to lift my head without feeling sick and found out very bad bout of suffering from vertigo and sickness. I will publish blog as I left it. I am lot better now the best thing being told though I have had a stroke in the past the docs don’t think I now have a small tumour.
To be honest I’m not to sure what their names are but these are the results of bulbs planted late 2011.
I did list their names down but I have misplaced the list.

Not to sure of names but this was the start of growth in my pots then the rock-less rockery

just a few planted in the Camellia pot.

Top of the rockery.

A yellow flower

_ I will take the time to add photo of long awaited plugs from one company finding they are using another company to supply. The invoice said dispatch date was 06 May 2014 and delivered today. I must add I did get a full refund

49 plugs Poppy Angels Choir

These are part of the 36 plugs of Livingstone Daisy Mesembryanthemum Magic
_I won’t name the two companies involved as information never added up, one of the very reputable company from whom the post through the door plug came. I rang them saying I had some plugs delivered in their “post through the letterbox plug boxes” and also asked if they delivered direct to me and they confirmed yes. I gave them my name etc and was told that my name not on their computers.. I also rang the company asking if my French Marigold plugs been posted and they confirmed yes they had left on Tuesday 20 May 2014 but please could I give until the Tuesday after the Bank Holiday for arrival. Live plugs stuck in the post over bank holiday weekend, if anything like the plants delivered today shall not use the company again….

I gave up postal purchases years ago after a box of
Chrysanthemums arrived dead. Seems they were prepared
for posting one week, left on the shelf the 2nd week, then
collected in bulk the 3rd week in Jersey, came over on the ferry, then got stuck in the post as Bank Holiday weekend.

The original advert was an address in Spalding. Muggins
me believed they were grown there !
