Introduction plus Canna question

Welcome. Good to hear you have the bug! Sounds like you have some good plants to get you started. I use Hosta alot but it's a nightmare keeping the slugs at bay. I suspect the Canna was called Cleopatra. One of my all time favourites! I'm not sure where you can get one from and be very careful as so...

Winter 2017/2018 Beast from the East survivors

Heatwave

Today I noticed some plants in the garden dying or already dead. It looks like after the killing winter we're in for a killing summer. I was going to buy some plants, buy may be better to wait until September to avoid the struggle of keeping them alive. My flip-flops on the patio have melted again....

Hopefully, as already promised the kids a pool party next week.
Looks a good idea. Think I'll be getting the kids paddling pool out again.

Do not buy from this person

Unfortunately it would appear he's taken people's hard earned cash and done one. He's blocked all the unhappy customers. I tagged him so he could have a chance to comment in the thread on facebook and he blocked me as well! I hope he doesn't have the cheek to appear on here anytime soon!...unless of...

Just a friendly heads up that a young guy called Robert/James Parsons (Fern Rob on here) is currently being reported to PayPal by numerous folk on Facebook after big issues with some plants he sold. Allegedly he has refused refunds when requested. He's actively blocking anyone who contacts him about...
