        Are those three Benjaminas to a pot? Mrs Shiney would have those split and repotted for sale in a blink of an eye. :blue thumb:

          Hi Shiney,

          There are three in the silver edged, four in the golden edged and four in the Pilea and Fittonia.

          They'll be split in the Spring. I can't do them now as I've got no compost, got to wait now till Wilkinsons put their gardening back in next year.

              That's a bargain :dbgrtmb:

              We don't buy anything for the garden apart from compost :noidea: I tell a lie! :doh: I bought a couple of obelisks the other month but they're still in their boxes in the shed and waiting to be assembled in the Spring. We'll grow annuals up them.

                  I had a Paul's Himalayan Musk at a previous house. It covered a 30ft fence in 4 years and grew to15 ft, kept footballs out of our garden nicely.
                  I had a Rambling Rector in another (country garden) I grew it up an old apple tree. That got to about 30ft. Apple blossom, followed by roses, then apples .
                  Both smelt wonderful.

                      My old wheel barrow "died" some time ago and yesterday I got around to ordering a new one. I chose one brand, a heavy duty type, which started on Amazon at £46 and with carriage added it was £52....if you wanted next day delivery it was another £8. So I trawled through the Net and found the identical Wheelbarrow for £39, post free which, according the the information, wouldn't be delivered until the 30th January. I wasn't in a hurry, [a next week delivery was fine], and ordered it at around 4pm. It arrived at 10 am this morning.......now that's service!!:thumbsup::yes::snorky:
