We have wild primrose in the lawn next door, it gets mowed intermittently, and they are increasing. Cowslip on the motorway banks are also on the increase.

Me and mum have tickets for a tour around Highgrove gardens in June. Unfortunately, no phones, cameras or binoculars allowed, so no pictures. Passport or other photo I.d. required. I don't suppose ....No don't even think about it, might end up in the tower.

Hilliers book describes x burkwoodii as dark shiny leaves, Brown grey felted beneath, fragrant white flower clusters, pink in bud. Flowers January to May.

Roger Philips and Martin rix describe it as  deciduous shrub to 2.5 m, leaves I hate to Lancelot, flowers scented, 12mm across, .

Other possibility is Viburnum x carlcephalum

.hee hee autocorrect changes that to cataclysmic.

I put plastic dome lids on until they are up, then I remove them to stop damping off.

I have buds on the aquilegias, which is a bit early. There is a new plant on the touchwood site, it looks like the one that I sent her seeds off a couple of years ago. I called it raspberry ripple, but there is another plant with that name so it can't be called that officially. It is described as "awesome"

I am so chuffed.

Those who had plants off of me last year at Bressingham should have something similar this year.
