I am in France and I grow Walleriana from seed. Haven't had any problems so far. But they need sowing fairly early as they are slow starters. I had a problem about 3 years ago when I bought some as I ran out.
Bedding begonias will grow in the same conditions.
Come in for lunch. Been weeding the middle bed, but it got too hot in the sun so weeded some of big border instead as it has morning shade.
Do they know when Mike is for the chopping block? So we can be around for hand holding.
Good to see those. That's the one RHS garden I haven't been to.
Morning all. Have had a shuffle in the cold frames this morning and all that has hardened off and the young perennials are now on the kitchen terrace. GH is nearly empty enough to start planting the tomatoes, won't do it today as it's sunny and it gets hot in there. Must do middle bed. Then I'll have room to get some of the plants into it.
Not a bank hol here, was last Thursday for 1st May and will be this Thursday for VE day on the 8th.
That's a good list, but sumach can be a nuisance sending up suckers.
Don't take any notice of Verdun, Mrs.G - he's just with envy!
Look like gladioli to me as well, OL.
Going to have an early night, then I may wake up at a more useful time tomorrow. But will have a look round here first.
Did you take any photos Lizzie? I've started a thread for Gardens we have Visited.
11am until 4.30pm is fine, they get sun during the sunniest part of the day.
Wow, Lindsay, fascinating. Amazing photos. I hope she was impressed and didn't eat him!
