Yay! 👍🏼👏🏼 🌱🌱🌱 and well done, you've reminded me what I have planted in the end of one border, as I saw the shoots earlier (the same) and couldn't think what they were! 🙈 thanks! 👍🏼

@nessas - I must have printed a million labels Vanessa! I'm determined not to misplace anything this year! 😀

@richard.spicer.7906 - I couldn't quite believe what they were! Thought I'd mixed the labels up, but I hadn't! They've arrived before both my snowdrops and crocuses! 😀
