 :ohmy: The Sarah Raven Catalogues have arrived  :lol:  ::)  :nowink:
I'm not good, I'm not bad - I'm just me, and sometimes I have to apologise for that ;)

I do love them both... it is always the postage that makes my eyes water though, with tubers etc (not just Sarah Raven's either)

What a question, its like asking me do I need more shoes lol. Go for it, I might needs lots more as Ive left mine in the garden again but this time weve had heavy frosts & lots of snow ☹️. My own fault I know. But hey, maybe next year Ill be more organised. Let us know what you order😉😉

Do you even have to ask?!!!  ::)

Always  :D
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

My catalogue hit the mat yesterday as well, but I haven't dared to look yet  :ohmy:

Do you need more - probably and with an uncontrollable urge once you have flicked through those lovely pages of colour  :lol:

I`d love lillies but unfortunately the red Lilly beetle loves them more in my garden. I only have to turn my back and they are devastated by the little devils.

My Sarah Raven catalogue arrived today, and I feel it would be disrespectful not to squeeze a few more dahlias into my patch as they've taken so much trouble with the lovely photos.
I'll probably need a shoe horn to get them in, but you can borrow it if you need to MoS.

I finally emptied my dahlia pot from last year today.  My 3 Sarah Raven tubers were pretty decent sized to start with, but had grown to fill the pot and had to be carefully chipped out.  I'm hoping for even more flowers this year  8)

I feel it would be disrespectful not to squeeze a few more dahlias into my patch as they've taken so much trouble with the lovely photos.

 :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

Absolutely Jaydig.  I agree entirely.  I dared to rip the plastic wrapping open on that catalogue and flick through  - aarrggghhh !   Sucked in and suckered in one.  I must have them  :wacko:

It is inspiring and I feel a protracted day dreaming session coming on  :lol:

Yes! All of them - I need everything in the catalogue ::) Someone once told me gardening isn't addictive - Ha! they were joking right?

Perhaps we need to start some sub groups to the seedaholic club.  Dahlia desperados?  Lilly lunies?

It could be worse.  Compared to a season ticket for the football or a golf club membership, I think we are pretty frugal in our hobby spending really ... go on and justify it NS  :nowink:  :lol:

The shed doubles as general storage at home, so only half the bill can be pinned on me  :lol:
