I rearranged the greenhouse so that I can switch the heater on without cooking the plants.I removed a dead mouse from the full watering can. I pruned the Brugmansias down so I now have a a bunch of cuttings in a jar in the kitchen windowsill. They will make roots by spring, when I will pot them up. Also I pruned the lower branches of the magnolias so that I can see the hellebores beneath. Then I was going to shred the prunings, but it rained  so instead I had ginger cake and coffee.

I dont think it is fallowiana. The leaf arrangement would be more like Buddleja alternifolia.(if it is a buddeleja) If so it should flower early on in the spring.

I'll agree with  Jasmine officinale. The white summer flowering one.

I seem to have spent all day on the A1.  Two and a half hours to Gateshead, two hours there for MIL 90th Birthday Party. Two and a half hours drive back. If she'd woken up for more than 3 minutes it might have been worth it.

Early night for me I think.  Have a good evening folks.

I find them but they are more brownish. I found one of the adults also in the garden. It looks too much like a leaf.They are probably there all the time, but I dont see them.

Too late to plant bulbs?

I could never decide with de caen anemones which way was up, so I put them in on the side. The roots will go one way, and the shoots the other.
