    Sounds interesting Hannah. Are there any plant disasters members care to share? Or newbie gardeners who would like a bit of help? What's the worst garden investment you've made?

    My pet hate is ordering plants online or through a catalogue where you see a photo of a lovely mature plant ...then lo and behold the plant you get is a weeny, weedy thing that really shouldn't have been let out of the nursery, let alone travel boxed up in the dark the last two days.

    Makes local plant swapping where you see the plants, where they grow and don't part with any cash look a fine alternative!

    Same as you Jeremy i hate it when i pay good money for plants online only to receive a tiny sad thing , thats why i have joined on here hoping to swap some lovely plants and chat with some greenfingered people
    i think my main plant disaster was buying bears breeches and now i cant get rid of it, also spent a lot on Trilliums and they never came up again.

    Yes - we have more than our fair share of Acanthus (bear's breeches) too. Striking plant, but gets everywhere. I've never grown Trilliums, but Helene Taylor wrote a brilliant post with great photos a while back about how to grow them. They sound a little tricky, but well worth the effort if you have the right, moist shady spot.
