    Usually I would bring a notebook and pen, bbut now I use my smart phone’s notepad to write.
    Cd duplication is something that lots of artist go ith to burn their music to multiple discs.

    A song, a joke, a poem, just thoughts in their mind.

    I live in California and I am having some planting “issues”. Was doing research on poppies and came across your website. Who knew planting poppies could be funny!

    Thanks for the laugh

    Dear Mr Higgledy,

    I use the very skilled Put Lots Of Autumn Seeds In The Ground And Feel Extravagant method. It’s very good. Until they seeds start sprutting and I am completely incapable of identifying anything. Could you possibly make a little Rogues’ Gallery of seedling photographs all in one place on your website, with a little identification tag, or a link to the relevant page on your website for that particular luscious item? I’m in a relatively new garden to me, which is Very Woodland and therefore there are very few scrub that absolutely no places at all that don’t have something else in the ground waiting to bust through – helping me identify what I want to nurture along and chat to my most flowery moments,, and what I want to help along to the great compost heap in the sky, would be unutterably helpful.

    Just a thought! Thank you!

    Having found your website by accident, I bought a selection of autumn planting flower seeds[2012] from you to grow flowers for the first time. I have grown vegetables for years – sensible & useful – but had got to the point in life of needing something beautiful – William Morris etc etc. The Autumn sowing came to nothing due to my skill sets but I persevered and today I have picked my first ever bunch of Eschscholzia. Thank you so much. Francesca
