I think Fairy must be on duty on top of a tree somewhere - hoping she will come back when her shift is over.  Am missing her wand

I start my first batches of flower seeds off first week of Feb - only have 7 seed trays on my heated propagator, so have to get the first lot going to have room for a second, and even third batch.  So not long now ......

I can just see my snowdrops poking their heads up, but nothing else yet.  Lovely violas Ggirl - they look like little faces.

looking forward to hearing how Dove gets on with that unicycle.  Maybe you could request a trapeze strung across the garden for your next birthday

I have bought pots of tete a tete like this before too.  If you are planting them in the garden do you still follow the "plant at depth twice the size of the bulb" rule.  Ie do you bury them green shoots and all?
