Lesley - I cover everything up if the forecast is 5 or below - we are in a frost pocket so often get blitzed when the surrounding area escapes. All tucked snugly away now
Glad you had such a good time Dove. Once spent a frustrating couple of hours stuck in traffic in Stamford, heading for the A1. I did think what a lovely place it looked though. Probably should have parked up, wandered round and waited for the traffic to subside, but I was still 3 hours from home so I "persevered"
Uplifting tales of blossom. My amelanchier is going for it for the first time (year 3), and my two new amanagowas have obliged with blossom. It is lovely....thankyou Yvie and Matty for the recommendation
Got to go away tomorrow - yukkity yukk yukk (that's a Hosta-ism)
Do i spot a "bells bank" David? ......one of my favourites
Morning Winter Another beautiful day dawning ....enjoy working in your little bit of paradise (can say that with conviction, having seen your pics on the other thread)
seem to have escaped the frost again - my pieris is still a-flaming
No singing endorphins here .....it might work for me, but others are less than appreciative of my efforts
Looks fabulous Wintersong .....you must be so pleased that all that planning paid off Love your great bowl of tulips too - fantastic colour.
A great mini cucumber is minimunch - but it is the fruits that are mini, not the plant.
Morning peeps Blue skies here, with a hint of frost. Just been to the GH, and my seedlings are looking good - glad I had them all under their own cosy lids though.
and now....tea needed, before the weeks chaos begins in earnest
Sounds like a great break pdoc - gardens, plant talk and wine
All my seedlings are now pricked out and in GH ......covered, as its forecast 2 here tonight.
chicklet has just gone off to pick up chinese .....there are advantages of her driving
Happy planning MrsG
Looking great Doris - that wallflower is amazing
all my lavenders are from offers like this in the past. They have all done well, but do take a couple of seasons to get going. But all you need is somewhere to grow them on out of the way - they don't need much attention. And you get an awful lot of plants for a fiver
My daphne bhoula Jacqueline Postil is wonderful - fragrant flowers from December to April - but it was here when we arrived,so someone else had done the hard work of getting it going. I have two self seeded babies growing, which I am leaving in situ for the time being.
eternal fragrance has yet to get going - maybe it never will. I had noticed some nibbling, and thought it was mice, but maybe it is my friend bambi after all. They never touch JP though.
