RHS were doing plant trials on foxgloves im the trial fields at Wisley (including illumination pink) a couple of years ago - it was a 3 year trial so will be interesting to see the results.

Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?

Next instalment from sunny surrey ......my flower spike is beginning to unfurl, and lots more are forming lower down.  Have had to do a bit of propping up too

Morning


Such sad news Lizzie - must have been so difficult having to plough on with your Open Day as normal having had a shock like that.  ((Hugs)).  And for you too Dove.


Blue tits nesting is exciting though


This brought me my first smile of the week, so thought I'd share



Happy Monday everyone ....sounds like that would be a good name for a band

Some of mine don't have flower spikes yet Helen.  But plenty of time for them to get going yet. Apart from the last couple of days, its been quite a cold spring, which might hold them back a bit.

Best present this year !!

Great haul seacrows - you obviously had a car full. Have you got places for them all or is that the next challenge .  I have a tulbergia that I am very fond of .... must get it some playmates


Did you enjoy the rest of the show? Loved the look of some of the show gardens when they showed them on GW.
