Thanks, Snowy, but it costs nothing and gives so much pleasure.  I believe that small kindnesses make everyone's life a little better.

Couldn’t agree more, on the odd occasion when I’ve had tickets for a show or something & then been unable to go, I’ve offered them to friends/family etc & they’ve been so thrilled when I wouldn’t accept payment, all I ask is that they pass it on if they get the chance. It came back to me when I was given 2 tickets to Chelsea flower show a few years back that someone on here had won, such a treat.

We planted our first dahlias last year after seeing the display they had at Anglesey Abbey.  But I negelected to get a really nice red...my excuse is to buy Sam Hopkins as a Valentines Present for my guy  :blush:  Not for me, no.

( Oriental lilies are my fav cut flower but just do not grow in my garden  :( )
I can resist anything except temptation.

This thread has convinced me to order a catalogue, although that website looks far too appealing for the likes of my wallet...

You should get an insert in the catalogue offering you 20% off your first order.  If not, you can get discount by signing up for email updates on the website.  I am probably not helping here am I  :lol:

I went for a single dahlia in the end - Penhill Watermelon, but also ordered a few young plants and 2 packets of  flower seeds  :blush:

I know we established that the answer to the original question was no, but a catalogue arrived (not from Sarah this time) and these caught my eye.  3 mega bulbs for a £5.  Seems rude not to  :lol:

https://www.jparkers.co.uk/3-lilium-claude-shride-1013026c

There are also various oriental ones at £2.99 for 5 - product codes L020, L021 & L022.

You get 40 gladioli bulbs free with any order.  Postage is a flat rate £3.99.

I love lilies, and used to have quite a lot in the garden until the invasion of the dreaded lily beetle. Despite my best efforts, every one of my lilies is no more.
