You'll have to promise to keep my secret if I've got one wrong already ! I'm hoping it's just our sunny Lancashire weather 😀

@donkinads I only live up the road in Cumbria, you must be in a nice pocket of warm air. 😁

@halfpintlinda yeah closer to the sunshine cost ha. You shouldn't have admitted to being a fellow northerner, you'll be getting all my hardiness questions now 😀

@donkinads I just plant and hope for the best 😂 Monty Don takes his dahilas out of the ground and puts them to bed in winter all mine are in pots outside although out of the 6 plants we have I have 4 left. I bought some small ones last year which I bought down south (not included in the 6) I reckon they won't be appearing.

@halfpintlinda I couldn't get the small ones to grow no matter what or where I tried, big ones do great but like you they've been left in over winter so fingers crossed for them all. Get a garden they said... no one mentioned my new Saturday nights would be spent doing seed trays 🥀!!

@donkinads your Friday nights watching Gardeners World and the post coming through the door is garden/bird related 😂 At least you don't get a hang over on a weekend 😁

@halfpintlinda yeah I broke my postie with a 50lb sack of peanuts. Seem to have lost the ability to walk past a Wilko's and pretty sure I was the only guy in the gym this morning listening to the GQT podcast. Sobriety may follow but one step at a time 😊
