        Two brilliant choices @Cordy, they both have absolutely wonderful fragrance! :blue thumb: Considering the fact that 'Alec's Red' is the daughter rose of 'Fragrant Cloud', it really surprised me how different their perfume was! :)

          I have to stop this ... just ordered cuttings of ...

          [​IMG] Peach/Light Orange Nerium Oleander, 2 unrooted big cuttings (Spain)

          [​IMG] Double Hibiscus, "Chiffon" Dark Pink, 3-4 unrooted woody cuttings )Spain)

          [​IMG] 10 Hibiscus seeds (from UK)

          Received Friday and planted ...

          [​IMG] Beloperone guttata, Yellow, rooted cutting (Spain)

          I have never heard of a Peach Oleander nor a Yellow Beloperone but they are cutting from the Seller's plant. Not sure about the colour of the Blue/Pink/White Hibiscus but we'll see.

              I bought three agapanthus, black buddhist, silver baby and Dutch seaside at a plant stall at the local Wildlife Reserve.. My large, potted agapanthus, one white and one pale blue, didn't have names so I'll be careful with keeping the labels of the new ones.

                  :heehee::heehee::heehee: There is no room to put all those beauties!

                  Good colour Lantana. :thumbsup:

                  I have the Blushing Bride Tradescantia.

                  Ooh, like that Disporum cantoniense, must look it up.

                  Good buys all round. :dbgrtmb:

                    Thank you @Victoria I'm glad you like my new plants, the Disporum was in the 'reduced' section of a local garden centre. I'd never heard of it before but it was half price so I had to buy it :thumbsup:

                      Not a plant, but qualifies as a garden ornament. I invested £13 in a cast iron giraffe.

                      Apparently it's really a toilet roll holder (love the photo on Amazon :heehee:), but I believe it will look brilliant peeking from my dwarf Cosmos. Very pleased with my purchase, I hope it's very heavy.

                          We can find information about English Princess, but no info on Fragrant Antique

                            My border fork and hand fork from Burgon and Ball arrived this morning. I'm pleased with the hand fork's weight and size and the size of the border fork. Not sure about the latter's weight tho, seems nearly as heavy as my Joseph Bentley digging fork! Well, we shall see how they both perform tomorrow as I have to dig a fairly big hole for my Hebe 'Midsummer Beauty'. :)

                              Today I bought clematis Ernest Markham. After a couple of days of intensive research, that was the plant I decided was the one I wanted. I thought I might have trouble finding one but I was pleased to find this one in my closest gardening centre. I don't actually need it yet but I wanted to buy so that I had it when I needed it.

                              Eventually it will grow up and (hopefully) over the pergola I intend to erect across the path.

                                I have a recess over the top of stairs with a window, far away from radiators. My Phlebodium Blue Star has now totally overgrown the space, nearly turning into a cube as the large leaves grew against the walls- so action was needed.

                                Rewarding myself for good behaviour I impulse bought four small indoors ferns from Morrisons. I admire their good labelling, they put in the full name down to the variant (a nice change from Wilko's "foliage plant"), detailed description on the back and a picture which helps a lot when I have pulled them all out for re-potting.

                                Didymochlaena Lunulata, two Peris (Mayi and Albolineata) and Adiantum Raddianum to enjoy some palliative care before I kill it.

                                Adiantums have a perfect spot in my bathroom windowsill and they truly appreciate it as a great place to die. I think this poor little thing is number four. :wallbanging:

                                Anyways, they are now all together in a roasting tin and look fab. Six pounds well spent, and who want a roast in the summer anyways? The Phlebodium is relocated to my home office and looks alarming. :biggrin:
