Just to let you know, Graham, I wrote a post the other day about plants on my covet list, and put in several links back to your posts on new plants. The post is at http://tinyurl.com/3dyq53. (I convert links to tinyurls so they paste easier.)

Remember all the hype a few years ago about Icicle Pansies? I see the website is still up and running, but no nursery I know of in NS is carrying them now.
I love pansies and violas of all sorts; they look like little cats, plus they remind me of my grandmother. And a bravely flowering Johnny-jump-up, in the unheated greenhouse in February, convinced us nine years ago next month that we needed to buy this property. So I let them free-range wherever they want in the yard, and they do brilliantly. They don't seem as inclined to slug damage as do the bigger pansies, either.

Thanks Jodi - but I'm afraid your TinyURL link doesn't work - I think this one does: http://tinyurl.com/3dyq53.

I ike violas and pansies too - but the are so many of them! I've done a piece on them for the British magazine - Garden Answers. It will be out in about a week and is an overview of pansies and violas of all kinds. I'm not sure if it's going online - if it is, I'll post a link.

And Jodi's bloomingwriter blog is well worth a read... just click on her name at the foot of the comment above.
