My Dad was mad about motor racing. When he died my mother, sister and I went to the florist to choose some flowers for his funeral, his favourites were red roses. The florist had some beautiful red roses called "Grand Prix".
I am very lady like, been told I talk posh, but can't help having wind with fizzy drinks, Lily! I wear posh green wellies a lot. Oh dear, spell check changed that word to something a bit rude!
I think I would wrap some damp kitchen towels around those roots, Chicky.
I can see one photo of a lawn that looks like my lawn after all this rain!
I thought that was strange, very green for February. I hope your garden is OK Ivyhouse, must be upsetting for you. Plants can be very resistant though.
Love Champagne, but it makes me burp
Well done Camera Corner! I thought it was doughnuts and cream buns that Verdun was addicted too.
Tracey, I don't think you're a Newbie any more! You've done well over 750 posts. You're one of us gardeners.
Snap, but Dove's answer is better. Why does everything happen back to front? That smiley was after the answer and my photos are always back to front nowadays.
Chicky, I think they will be fine. Are they just the rhizomes or have they got leaves? The leaves can feed off the rhizomes until you get them planted. They sell them in sawdust in plastic bags here. Or are they bulb irises?
