No its  not too late. Why not give your local garden centre a ring to see  if they have had more delivered.Many supermarkets often sell them, well worth a look Violas  can offer an attractive alternative     Good luck

Too late to plant bulbs?

Do go ahead and plant! I always plant tulips deeply and have many that have been in for years. As others have said remember to feed.

Sorry to hear about your loss Last year we thought all of our goldfish had been taken, and then at beginning of spring one of ours suddenly appeared perhaps you will have similar luck!

What tree is this?

I would agree on escallonia. An additional suggestion would be to try layering a branch,anchor it down with a stone, hopefully by next season it will have rooted

I do agree  with Berghill, alliums can be a delight but also some varieties are best described as a weed  so plant with caution!

No contest! About 35yrs ago I received a Mothering Sunday gift from my daughter. I believe the official name for it is a  daisy grubber It is in constant use as a weeder, planter etc but to me it will always be known as Rachel's tool

Thank you for sharing your garden plants They are delightful. Following a fall 2 months ago I have been unable to walk and cannot wait to  get into what will be a bed of weeds further surgery is likely so  it may be a while yet My OH a non gardener, is doing his best but I feel it will be like starting from the beginning again, meanwhile keep your piictures coming, they are much appreciated

I do so agree with the suggestions that have been made How many times have I said 'if only I had known; when plants have become rampant Berghill makes avery apt point when he mentions plant fair sales, I think many are just interested in gettinga sale rather than the performance of a plant Forums like this do help to promote awareness of such things
