        Dropped into Morrisons Supermarket whilst on holiday and picked up a nice little (cheap) Garden Bistro set (Table - 2 chairs and 2 cushions) all for £60. Bargain I thought. All that's needed now is a centre stone circle for the grass area to set it all off.

              This morning I took delivery of the final installment Sempervivum of the RHS AGM Award winners. "Sir William Lawrence". A bit pricy for such a small plant but it needed to be included. It's healthy and a real beauty, that's the main thing.

                  I knew you would, well be sure not to keep us all in suspense.lol
                  If you buy any Sempervivums with offshoots I will trade with you if you like.
                  Good Luck with your purchases..Try not to buy them all lol

                    More into echeverias and aeoniums for the moment BigC.....
                    Sempervivums will follow soon enough I think.:)

                    I have a pretty big garden, continue to add plants regularly, have loads of plants unplanted but desired, and rationally need to have some will power.

                    Even today I added another colocasia.....a huge plant potentially. I want it but where do I plant it? The garden is full....plants well spaced so I never squash plants in......so I guess I need another garden !! Possibilities for me to acquire a near 6 acre garden ....hey! Then I can really plant everything :)

                      The view from the kitchen window has improved a lot this year. The plants that are in there now should be beef up enough to fill the gaps.

                        That sounds very familiar to me and others I expect...I don't have a big garden but long for the extra space to grow everything I can think of...my hubby keeps saying where are you going to plant these plants...it's the same reply I always give..I'll think of somewhere..:biggrin:

                              @Perki I am a total "stuffer" too.
                              These are my brussels sprouts surrounded by nicotiana and backed up by cauliflower and varieties of cannabis (it's legal here).1563640528291-1080096768.jpg The tomatoes have chives and catnip growing in front of them with dianthus interspersed in between them.1563640562479509536769.jpg I stuffed in tiger lillies, then peonies, then phlox, then rudbeckia, then ferns, creeping myrtle, hostas and in front of the tree that's about to be taken down (dead) are more hostas with rhubarb to their right and a small asparagus bed.1563640598265-1466777386.jpg You're supposed to space begonias but I have these stuffed into a balcony planter. Figuring out to collect the seeds from these because I'm betting I won't be able to order them again as they were a "special"15636406737101445249968.jpg I've got hanging pots everywhere and my little greenhouses are stuffed too. The only bed that is not overcrowded right now is the cucumber space.
                              Sorry if the pictures are fuzzy. It is stinking hot and humid out there- 30C with humidity feels like 42c as the weather guessers claim or 86f/108f and because the sun is blazing, my tablet just looks like a flat shiny surface with fingerprints all over it so I can't see if I'm focused :doh:
                              My small garden out front has plants all shoulder to shoulder too :)
