Morning Andy - seems like winter is about to return here too. What sort of things were in your bulb order?
some of my seedlings are starting to develop their true leaves - dahlias in particular are romping away
I usually pot all my new perennials up and keep them out of the cold at this time of year - can you peg fleece over them? All your new plants are hardy varieties, but it depends what conditions they have been growing in recently - they might well have been mollycoddled, in which case a frost will be a shock
Hi Briony - don't know of any evergreen roses, but i have had New Dawn and Little White Pet grow well on north facing walls. Both have some scent, but not very strong.
Thank you so much for all your pictures Marion - i love following this thread
Keep seeing pretty trees with yellow flowers on my journey to work - thanks to your photo i now know what they are - a willow with "pussy willow" catkins that have exploded
Oh KEF - big hugs and positive vibes
Thanks for that - it looks like my Black Adders have made it through the winter, and most of my cuttings took too, so i might be adding some this year. If it does well here, i add more
Clari - i "hide" in my GH - i work on the principle that if i pretend i can't see people, then they can't see me either. Bit like a 3 year old playing hide and seek
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)
