Seem to remember wittering on here about my hyacinths last weekend.  Here are the same bulbs grown indoors last year, and then planted in the garden. Can't believe the colour difference

Morning.  Hectic work week over, so can turn my thoughts to the garden  Weather not looking great, but I have lots I can do in the GH.  Don't mind at all that we lose an hour's sleep tonight means it will finally still be daylight when I make it home from work.....and that makes such a difference

Glad to see you have all been busy with spades or paint pads

Take it easy Dove - Lesley is so right.  Look after yourself ((hugs))

What a pretty chanomeles Matty.  How about a white geranium for underplanting?

had another afternoon of mulching - have to say the bits I have done are looking very good for it - hope things grow good and strong as a result.  Maybe one more day to get the top border done, then time to start the bottom one

Daffs are looking pretty good, and lots of scillas and chinodoxa now starting to flower last years forced hyacinths that I put in the garden once they had finished indoors.  They are a much darker blue outside than they were indoors
