Great idea Mr list, I think I'll also do one.

I was trying to find a place for another plant but looks like you've filled up all that garden to the brink, you've got some nice plants in there, can't wait to see how it fills out.

I like you bamboo area icon_cheers

Asda or Wilkos for large pots Mr L, B&Q are taking the pee with their prices, even the small normal type pots are mega expensive.

yep went to wilkos, cheap as chips and then when i got to the till it was even cheaper because of some unadvertised promotion.
3 big pots ,4 little pots and three troughs for £15.00 icon_thumleft

here's a photo of the B&Q plant haul:

and the plants i got for my troughs in leeds market:

http://i1198.photobucket.com/albums/aa4 ... 011570.jpg

6x begonia salmon @ £2 each
4x azalea @ £2 each
and 3x canna indica-hybr. @ £2.70 each

can anybody tell if the canna are virused or OK from the photo?
i think they are ok atm and shouldnt be a problem since i dont have any other canna.

Nice collection sir, although you need to sound more enthusiastic about it :wink: :lol:

By the way I'm glad you've got Azalea indica, I've been promoting these to people since I joined, every one should have one!

It'll be ok to plant at least one of those! They will get through a normal winter.
