When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

They're just fabulous Jacqueline, I got #spintopred last year, it survived winter and also hasn't stopped flowering this year, one of my favourites this year 😍

These came in an amazing 72 perennials for 99p offer last June. They flowered a bit last year but have been fabulous this year 🧡 @sieveheadsarah

That has to be the bargain of the year Jacqueline, think I'm going to collect some seeds from mine, if I remember not to deadhead a couple of the flowers, would you like some??

It was an amazing bargain and irresistible. It had lots of plants hat I didn’t need but a friend now has a bed with three lavenders and my M-in-law got lots of aquilegias and delphiniums. Amazing! Thanks for the offer and yes, why not. I’ve been a bit disappointed with my seed growing this year but I’m blaming my compost 😉 @sieveheadsarah

(Sorry, more cataloguing) 4 Jun 2018 • Another of my “72 perennials for £2.99”. Not sure what they’ll be like, or if they’ll thrive where I’ve put them a but the leaves are good 😉

I got mine for 99p, but I didn't pot them all up, only a few of each one as I knew I wouldn't use them all. I labelled them up meticulously following the tiny printed labels, double checked them then put them in the greenhouse and other than watering them I left them alone. I went to plant them out on Sunday and noticed that most of then didn't resemble what they were supposed to be, I wasn't a happy bunny. I think I sorted them out but time will tell. 😬😬😬😬😬😬

Oh no! I hope they are all OK Jane and yes, you’re right. They were 99p weren’t they 🙄 I potted mine all up (some in things you wouldn’t recognise as pots!) and have given lots to friends and family and I think only a lobelia didn’t make it 🤞🤞 @pelly

Oh they were definitely healthy plants, and I gave my daughter some. I'm still trying to figure if I got it wrong but I'm sure I didn't. I wrote out a plant marker and only potted a line at a time and as I said, I then double checked that each row had the name given in the plan. Hey ho!!!
