Is it too late for bare roots?

Posted: Today at 19:51

I'd be ok with doing it til end of March - just remember to keep it watered well for the first year.  Our winter (Surrey) has been the coldest for years, and everything is weeks behind.  However, I hear (from Forum friends ) that Scotland has been mild ...so I guess it depends where you live .....

It seems to be a problem Loana - mods have been alerted


If you use your tablet in portrait form then you can scroll through it, but not in landscape.


Not sure who tests these things before they get released to cause a weekend of chaos

Mark, Flowers - it was Welford Park just outside Newbury ......(home of bake-off🍰🍰🍰) .....very impressed that you can spot a Berkshire snowdrop when you see it Mark .  Haven't seen the Hen&Chicken snowdrops Hosta, but I know that area - might pop up next weekend for a nosey.


Had my first weekend gardening of the year - first one that wasn't either Frosty or waterlogged.  Felt good to be out there. And just sowed my first propagator seeds too.


Pdoc -FiL moved in to a place like that last summer - its made the world of difference to him - he is positively cheerful .  Says he wished he had done it years ago. Still independent, but lots of neighbours on hand for a chat, to watch telly or do jigsaws with in their communal lounge.

❀️❀️❀️❀️ True love indeed ....hats off to you Mr Beau !  (Or should it be Beaus Dad )


Not round much at the moment - works a bit manic - but watching you all from afar . If someone could start my seeds off on th windowsills, prune my apple trees and raspberry canes, and maybe make a bit of a start on the weeding I'd be very grateful

I'm on the sofa too  But no knitting here, just piles of gardening magazines 


Snowdrops were a bit of a whiteout - and those that you could see were tightly shut so you couldn't see their markings.  Popped in to our local independent GC on the way home for birdfood and left with two mahonias - Charity and Winter Sun.


A couple of hours relaxing is on the cards, then must go and get my glad rags on .....Italian restaurant in London tonight for the final celebration of littlest Chicklet's birthday with uncles, aunts, cousins and Grandad
