    Oops, famous last words:dunno::heehee:as another lot of Allium Red Mohican and Silver Springs arrived this morning, along with a parcel containing Allium Globe Master, and one large final parcel containing 3 more Polygonatum (Solomon's Seal). To be honest, I have ordered so many different kinds of bulbs and hardy perennials that I forgot to record the buying of the Solomon's Seal plants so their arrival was a surprise, but a welcome one as although I already have one waiting to go into the borders I can always find space for 3 more.

      @ARMANDII - you are naughty!:spinning: You have now made me feel it's ok for me to go to my favourite nursery and see if they have any interesting berrying plants to bring home.:whistle:

      Naughty is my middle name, Caroline:dunno::heehee: And, besides, you know you really need to go to the Nursery, walk around, see those lovely plants (that you really, really need), and not buy them.:whistle::heehee:

          Tut tut @ARMANDII - what are you like? As a result of your previous misdemeanours I bought a load of plants at Farmyard Nurseries - Arbutus menziesii, pink berried sorbus, Ilex Handsworth New Silver etc etc.
          I don't want you tempting me again!:yikes:

            They're very nice plants though!!!:thumbsup:

            I hate to say this, Caroline, but I have 3 large empty plastic hanging pots sitting on hooks on the Patio so, having bought the previous carnivorous plants, I struggled with myself trying not to buy any more yet......and failed.:wallbanging::dunno:
            So I've just ordered from the "Little Shop of Horrors"

                Aaaaah, well, I was hoping you'd miss that:hate-shocked::doh: Well, the postage was nearly £8 but over a certain amount it was free, so I bought another plant and got basically two thirds of a plant for "free".....if you know what I mean:heehee:
                I guess I'll have to find/buy a nice ceramic pot to put the fourth in:dunno:. The plants bought from the "Tiny Shop of Horrors" are the big 3' plants so they'll go nicely in the hanging pots........well, that's my excuse anyway.:whistle::heehee:

                  Ive tried (and failed) twice to grow carnivorous plants from seed. Maybe its time to buy plants instead.
