Looking for something to spice up a salad or add a little zing to a recipe, then use the Edible Flowers or Foliage from some Perennials.

Silver is one of the classic neutral colours in the garden, a tone that combines well with virtually anything else. Both grey and silver foliage also help to create interest when nearby flowering plants may have already finished or not yet come into bloom.

Valleybrook Gardens, a family-owned nursery farm, which is one of North America's largest wholesale producers of herbaceous perennials does not sell plants by direct mail order. It has created the New Perennial Club which:-

"If you enjoy trying new plants, we want your feedback. Each year we introduce new varieties of exciting perennials and the best way to determine how they perform season after season and year after year, is via feedback from real gardeners - like you! And that's what this Club is about."

 

The Scottish Rock Garden Club was founded in 1933 by a small group of enthusiasts who were interested in promoting the cultivation of alpine and rock garden plants. There are now over 4500 enthusiastic members in 38 countries. The SRGC is the largest horticultural society in Scotland and considered by many to be the friendliest and most accessible in the World.

This site is packed with information on club activities and covers every aspect of the cultivation of alpines, rock garden plants and dwarf bulbs. There are section on shows, show reports, plant portraits, feature articles etc.

Nurseries that grow and sell plants to the Public:-

If a plant is detailed in its own page in one of the Plant Galleries and it occurs in one of their catalogues, then it is noted as being available from that nursery in the Comments Section of that plant's description page.

Coblands Nurseries:-
Coblands Nurseries were founded in 1963 growing a wide range of shrubs, herbaceous, grasses, ferns and trees in the ‘coblands’ of Kent. The production nursery extends over 120 acres on a number of sites in and around Tonbridge, growing approximately a million plants at any one time.
www.best4plants.co.uk now brings this wealth of knowledge and expertise to the general public as well as the trade.

 

Kevock Garden Plants:-
The present mail-order nursery was developed on a bare site (Kevock Garden is on a slope with the top being well-drained sand, but the underlying clay emerges at the bottom of the slope and that is permanently wet) in 2002 and grows unusual alpine, bog, woodland and herbaceous plants, shrubs and bulbs for both the Retail and Trade markets.
Kevock Garden Plants will design your garden and produce the Planting Plan.

R. V. Roger Ltd, The Nurseries, Malton Road (A169), Pickering, North Yorkshire, YO18 7JW - Tel:(01751)472226 - Fax:(01751)476749 is a traditional third-generation family-run nursery, with the emphasis on plant quality and first-class customer service. The range of field-grown fruit trees grown is one of the best in the country, including many traditional varieties, which are becoming quite rare. They also grow over 40,000 roses in nearly 300 varieties. The rose field is usually in flower from the middle of July until the autumn, when you are welcome to visit and walk through the field. Besides shrubs and ornamental trees, R. V. Roger also produce four bulb catalogues throughout the year, offering choice for a plant or plants by mail order direct from the 280 acre nursery.

3 kids are playing in the street & get hit by a garbage truck. They all go to heaven and God says to them, "You weren't supposed to die - you were all supposed to live out your lives. This was not your time.

To make it up to you, I'll let you choose what you want to do with your life. Take a running jump off of that cloud over there, and as you're flying back down to Earth, shout out what you want to do.

And so it shall be."

 

The 1st kid takes a running leap and shouts "I want to be an attorney." And so, 20 yrs later, he is a very successful lawyer, making lots of money, with an upcoming appointment to the Supreme Court.

 

The 2nd kid takes his turn and shouts "I want to be a brain surgeon." And so, 20 years later, he is the most admired man in his field of Medicine and making a ton of money saving lives.

 

The 3rd kid goes to take his turn, and as he runs he trips over his own feet and stumbles off the cloud muttering "....clumsy great twat....." And so, 20 years later.................

he's playing left back for England..

.

This is what marriage is really all about . . .

He ordered one hamburger, one order of French fries and one drink. The old man unwrapped the plain hamburger and carefully cut it in half. He placed one half in front of his wife. He then carefully counted out the French fries, dividing them into two piles and neatly placed one pile in front of his wife.

He took a sip of the drink, his wife took a sip and then set the cup down between them. As he began to eat his few bites of hamburger, the people around them kept looking over and whispering. You could tell they were thinking, ‘That poor old couple - all they can afford is one meal for the two of them.’

As the man began to eat his fries a young man came to the table. He politely offered to buy another meal for the old couple. The old man said they were just fine - they were used to sharing everything.

The surrounding people noticed the little old lady hadn’t eaten a bite. She sat there watching her husband eat and occasionally taking turns sipping the drink.

Again the young man came over and begged them to let him buy another meal for them. This time the old woman said ‘No, thank you, we are used to sharing everything.’

As the old man finished and was wiping his face neatly with the napkin, the young man again came over to the little old lady who had yet to eat a single bite of food and asked ‘What is it you're waiting for?’

She answered . . .
