Beckie gets the glass of wine.

Michauxia  tchihatcheffi. I got the seeds from plant world. Three germinated. Two survived the first winter. second winter, one got eaten by slugs and is in Intensive care. This one flowered  Then its going to die, but I hope for seeds, although it might be self sterile

Dont ask me to pronounce it after a glass of wine.

It is very beautiful 

Carrots, hard in centre?

Sounds like not enough water and, as you've guessed, not thinning them so they didn't get big enough soon enough.

Nantes are an early carrot and are best grown quickly and picked and eaten young and sweet.

There are other carrots which can take longer to grow and can be left in the ground through the winter - Autumn King is one of these.

I've also got a Hellebore with a flower bud almost open - one of the white Christmas flowering ones - can't remember what it's called and I'm stuck to the sofa and can't reach my notebook 

All the things that are flowering out of season are in the new west-facing bed at the front of the house.

I'm stumped 

But then I'm not the only one who's confused.

Remember the other day I said that my Viburnum Bodnantense 'Charles Lamont' is in full bloom RIGHT NOW!  

Well, the Clematis cirrhosa 'Freckles' which grows behind it, is blooming NOW as well  - do they think they're in the Antipodes?
