Yes - nice new shoots appearing.  

It looks like you have a skimmia or viburnum growing right next to it Emma.  The Fatsia will grow over it so if you have room somewhere else, it might be worth moving one of them to give them both room to grow.

Seems to be nut. Nice little flowers - multi headed

Remember to give them plenty of ventilation once you have them in the greenhouse too Sarah. A closed greenhouse gets astonishingly hot even in the earlier months.

'Cheerfulness' is lovely nut. There's a yellow version of it which is quite a subtle yellow. Nice scent

Not sure why they're not more widely grown GD. Lovely little plants and no problems with them. I love the seedheads 


I must get some frits nut. Don't know why I haven't before now

I love their feathery stems  Hefty 

I bought them as small plants GD, but they do seed around quite happily. I have some white ones and a reddish/violet coloured one but they're not in flower yet.

I've been playing with a warm hosepipe in the back garden,     


I got slightly worried there for a moment....

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

That was kind of her Verd. Did you ask for seconds? 

I fed my grass, sowed some more sweet peas and potted up some Acidantheras - handy in the sunnier border. Also sowed the harebells I got - they are so tiny!

Ta philippa  

Think I put a bit of chicken wire across the bulk of the pond last year. Birds could get in to bathe and drink but the spawn was relatively safe. I rescued several little froglets once they were out and about so at least some managed the 'Great Escape' 

Hopefully some will eventually come back once they're big enough
