Great news on the planning Fairy - now bring on the builders. Lovely daff Stacey - definitely worth marking for later.
Where were the agastaches from V??
Lovely camellia pics. Looks like i started something ........ now how to amuse you tomorrow ........
Busy day, but not a garden in sight. Roll on the weekend - complete with arctic blasts - thats my magnolia done for. Might squeeze a bit of HW in this evening. .... OH is out, and the girls have their heads in school books (well, more probably social media, but they make it look like they are studying hard)
And just to prove we put garden pics on here sometimes too ..... Here is my new camellia (from Trehanes) - bought because it has the same name as the littlest Chicklet. And, no, she is not called Debbie!
Pretty as a picture
Morning all - enjoy your days away Dove.
Thanks Verdun, for your advice on Bowles Mauve - when do i need to remember to take cuttings? I'll make a note now - will be nice to replenish the stock.
Our forecast is turning cold for the weekend - might affect project GH move (Tracey isn't the only one with GH worries!). Needs to get done before i get too many babies in there
Tracey - its 4 days til the weekend - plenty of time for the forecast to change
The garden he is doing is not one of the ones that will be judged- so no medal pressure for him. But i am looking forward to seeing it all the same (never agree with the medals anyway)
Could be suffering from soil that is not acid enough. Try a feed of sequestered iron, which should green up the leaves. Flower buds form in the previous summer, so you won't get any this year. Make sure it doesn't go short of water next August - that is when it will be making flowers for next spring. Hope this helps.
Lily - try feeding them with tomato feed once a week when the leaves have come through a bit.
keep all mine in pots (congestion helps with making them flower) and bring them in the GH to keep them dry and warm all winter. I love the Midnight Star variety, and one called Back in Black - i like them really dark blue
Love that daffodil MrsG. Also, thanks to posts from you and Lizzie a couple of days ago, i went and looked properly at the patch where i planted my brunnera ..... And there are new shoots appearing, so all is not lost
