    I thought Finland lost its trees because they were all cut down for boat building by Vikings or something? As for our gardens, I find it amusing to read old gardening books (I used to buy them in secondhand shops) that don't mention growing things perennially we now take for granted eg salvias.

    White borage?

    Hi all, I've seen some white borage plug plants I've taken a fancy to, I'm just wondering if it's to late to buy them (it says ready now)? Or would it be best from seed next year? Thanks.

    Achimenes / hot water (bottle ;-) ) plants

    I hope it survives having its seasons turned almost upside down. I'm certainly going to do my best to look after it - having a little green shoot arrive through the post today has made my day!:planting:

    Bamboo help!

    IMO you should take it back. In a container there's a strong risk that it will become dehydrated and look terrible, and it will pretty quickly fill the container and need splitting/root pruning....

    Where are my tomatoes!

    Hello there, well, think I was just impatient, mainly; have a good crop on most now, although the new variety that I was trying haven't done much. Thanks for all contributions.

    Gentians

    I have seen them rot when they hold wet. But I am pretty poor with gentians - the only ones that do OK with me are g. asclepiadea. Is yours septemfida?
