Developing my knowledge all the time. I love growing plants: barely any space on my windowsills, nor on my patio as it's full of pots. #renting.

@Charlotte Thanks very much for asking. Means a lot. In himself he is ‘back to normal’ and wounds etc have all healed. We saw the consultant who confirmed it was cancer in kidney, Stage 3 as had started to grow out of it but all removed and don’t think any cells broke away (as much as they can tell) so regular CT scans to monitor over next 5 years. Glad he had the op though and it all removed. Now just got to do what he’s told by a different specialist to keep remaining kidney as healthy as poss

Need some #mondaymotivation Hmm! I have a feeling that this so-called #rainbowdelight variety is simply a mixture of different pansies in different colours as this is a blotch pansy but the white and yellow ones weren’t!! Still it’s nice to see it open hiding under the tulip leaves! #purple #pansy 08/04/19

@anges @juliesgarden Thanks. Yes you both make good points!! It is very dainty looking, much more so than my yellow blotch pansy, and bright and cheery. It's just I was hoping for a bit of variety of colour with these pansies, based on their name!! 😊

Spring pots now complete. Bought #pansy #rainbowdelight in clearance £1.50 can't find any info on this variety though. Not sure 2/9 will survive but can't complain for the price. Now just need to keep everything happy over the winter! 😊 06/11/18

Go ahead and get your succulents from Sainsbury's as then you can garden inside over winter 😁 I've promised myself not to buy so many plants next year as have lots of seeds to grow, but I know I'll give into temptation 😂
