Mrs Garden, the daisy is a margeurite. They are perennial but frost tender. You can easily strike cuttings to make more plants, and then cut it down, it will then shoot again . It probably will need as feed as well.

Mrs G - your shoots look like crocosmia to me..... Love the raindrops on the lupin too.  Marion, what a delightful garden - looks enchanted


Lizzie - agree it will be sad to see the last of the snowdrops and hellebores (loving your clumps of both) - but we will be so carried away on a frothy tide of spring that we will forget to mind for too long

FB - thanks that's the one, knew it wasn't michaelmas but just couldn't think what it was. Never thought to take cuttings, nothing to loose if i try now and throw them in the GH for a while, second thoughts on a window sill.

Chicky - don't remember crocosmia being in there, although I moved that many things last year, guess time will tell!

Longer and more catkins than previous years, just need to choose a spot in the ground (to be seen in spring but hidden in summer!).

Mrs G - they are so attractive.

Those pics of the catkins turn the right way round if you click on them.

Glad they turn round for you Forester2, I thought they would but they stay sideways on my laptop !

Tracey - your borders look amazing! Did you build them yourself?

05/03/2014 at 18:31
No Allium, I'm afraid we were a bit lazy (well we don't really have the time to be honest with working full time) so we got someone in to build the actual borders but I have been out and bought all the plants and planted them myself. There are more pics on the other thread about my borders. Thank you for the compliment.....I'm not used to so many compliments

Mrs. G, have you got Preview on your laptop? If so you should be able to rotate it in there (look at bar on top), then save.

Hellebores doing well concidering they were only bare root plants and put in in Spring not bad for a pound each, although i had to wait 2 years I still think its worth it.
