Alright, who broke the forum???

Its too cold to garden, and I dont like rugby.

I picked some daffs to put in a vase. The pond is full of frogs and frogspawn. Too late to put a new liner in again.

Remember to water the hedge every week for the first year, until it gets established.

A deciduous hedge will suck all the moisture out of the soil during the summer and most summer flowering stuff will struggle to survive. Primroses and snowdrops are the traditional plants for hedge bottoms.

They look a bit broader then common grass seedlings. None of my roscoeas are shooting yet. The later years, you get a nose poking through the soil around May.

Daffodils in June?

Fentongollan farm send out daffs by post in wholesale size boxes. You could ask them what the latest dates are. Although they are in Cornwall, and i suspect you need some from Scotland.

Thats good. They dont grow much in the first year, probably only a couple of broad grass like leaves. Keep them out of bright sunshine, and dont let them dry out.

Sunny here, so we may get to see the eclipse. We saw a partial one last October in Indonesia. No one paid much attention to it.

Wait until the leaves have grown, maybe flowered, and then died down. Then dig them up, give them away and ask them to plant them before winter.
