Waiting to be planted

Todays first priority was to find a treatment for the potato blight. Travelled to Craigavon first to Homebase but nothing available however the plant section drew me outside. I left with 3 phlox - Velvet Flame, 1 sage for my herb planter,3 Salvia Hot Lips and from the reduced plant stand 2 Verbascum Jackie in Pink and 2 Enchinaea. Then to B&Q no product available for potato blight so on to Mahon Garden Centre outside Portadown. Yipee Dilthane in stock but once again I was drawn into the plant section. Eventually after a stroll around collected a truck and left with 3 potentilla Ron McBeath,3 Gaura Rosyjane, 3 Lythrum and a red peony.These plants along with the 5 sedums from Lidl filled the back of the car. One purchase made in B&Q was 5 collaspable baskets costing less than £10 for all the plants now potted up. On returning home it was off to the kitchen garden after giving the new plants a long drink. Job done infected leaves removed potatoes sprayed and then along came the rain so I suspect that the spray has been washed off. Rain still falling so plants waiting patiently to move to their new homes. Also waiting are 3 miscanthus zebra, hope tomorrow weather improves.

Good days shopping considering you went out just to get blight spray. Hope it works for you now!!
