Thank you everyone for your kind comments and advise. I will be putting these in the garden this weekend now, just hope after all this that they grow and flower. Thank you again

Thank you nutcutlet, who would have thought that such little bulbs would cause such a problem. They do look so lovely on the box though.

In tiny writing lower down on the box it says Triteleia Queen Fabiola, I will be honest I have never heard of these.

They are very similar to crocus bulbs, quite small.

Hi punkdoc, it says on the box that they are phacelia companularia, hope that helps.

Hi everyone, has anybody ever grown California Blue Bells. I have got about 30 of these little bulbs but I don't know anything about them. Can they be invasive and take over your garden or should I just put them into a pot. Any advise would be greatly apreciated.

I have taken Salvia Hot Lips cuttings last year and have got three lovely plants to go out in the next few weeks. This week I have taken cuttings of Alstromeria. I bought these lovely plants in Holland last week so hopefully they will grow big and strong. They are all standing up nice and straight and tall at the moment, so I am keeping my fingers crossed. 

The Swifts are Back

Posted: 08/05/2013 at 17:59

I heard my first scream of swifts today. I have been looking towards the sky for a few days now, knowing that they will soon be back and today I was rewarded with that lovely sound. I always feel that it is the sound of summer even if the weather thinks otherwise. But who cares, because I love watching them and hearing them and I will be doing the swift count for the RSPB later on in the summer.
