I bought a bag of bulbs from a cheap shop and I'm delighted they all came up. The label said 'Fringed mixed' and they are very pretty, though mostly red, but one bloom has dozens of petals and looks almost like a rose. Can anyone tell me what type this is as I'd love to order some for next year. Hope you can see the photos to help identify it. Fingers crossed someone knows.

I'm growing them in sacks for the first time this year and I noticed this morning that they are just showing tips of shoots. Tomorrow night we should have a frost so should I put compost or fleece on them?

Anyone bought a bargain?

Popped into Wyevale and headed to the reduced stand. Bought 3 x 1litre pots of flowers at bargain price £1 each instead of £3.99 each.

Bellis Habanera and Dark blue and Pink Forget-me-nots.

I'm ticked pink. (please excuse the pun).

 

Dicentra spectabilis - is yours up yet?

I bought one from the reduced shelf last year, but I can't see it anywhere yet. Thought maybe I'd lost it. I'll have to look closer to see if there's a shoot or two.

It does drop the older leaves at this time of year, but usually has red new leaves showing by now.

I agree that we need a longer programme. I goes so quickly, and I look at the clock and think OH NO Not 9 o'clock already.!

I find Monty very relaxed and soothing as well. A breath of fresh air at the end of a busy week. Love it!

Anyone know any good trees that like very wet ground??

My salix tortosa drinks gallons of water a day. It's 40 years old now, but it would be impossible to get on my garden till about June if I didn't have it. It's pretty with it's curly leaves  and twigs.

If this was Yours ...

I like the white look if it's planted with the right stuff. I'd go with red white and blue planting, maybe with trailing blue lobelia, or bacopa over the sides to soften the look. I've got itchy fingers just thi9nking about the design. Lucky you!
