Pulmonaria 'Roy Davidson' dying?

Posted: 29/08/2015 at 16:37

Although they have a reputation for doing well in dry shade, I find pulmonarias really benefit from being kept damp for the first couple of summers until they are well established.  A bucket full of water may well do the trick

Foxglove seedlings ....when will they flower?

Rb - glad you're feeling a bit better

I'd better go out there and get the washing in - it's clouding over

They've been increasing in mid Wales  - I saw my first one there over the Elan Valley in 1975

Chimonanthus flowers very early in the year, before the leaves come, you need to be a winter gardener to appreciate it

Or a flower arranger - just one stem of flowers will perfume a room

What weed is this?

We are right on the edge of the city - although we have woods and marshes just over the hill - I've seen red kites up in North Norfolk, and over at Nutcutlet's place on the edge of Cambridgeshire, and I've seen buzzards over arable land in North Suffolk and hobbies and marsh harriers around the Broads ........ but virtually over central Norwich!!!

Although of course I know they used to scavenge in London in the Middle Ages.

I'm thinking they may be migrants returning to Europe for the winter?
