I took cuttings off the penstemons when I cut them down a couple of weeks ago.
I didnt label them at all.
But I know they are penstemons.
My verbena bonariensis aren't labelled either.
I opened the controlled drug cupboard in a lincolnshire pharmacy, to find a row of bottles of Strychnine. For sale to the registered mole catcher. he had to sign the poisons book and have a certificate.Thats all right then.
No frost here. It rained a lot last night. Mrs Mallard was having a good time furtling around the pots with a few side ventures into the wood. I'm assuming she was sorting the slugs out.
Sweet pea sticks to set up today.
Yes, now you mention it, I seem to remember reading the label. I usually photograph both for reference, but was amazed to see it in full flower so early in April.
So B3 which is it?
I had an Amistad survive the winter last year. I had taken cuttings. It emerged from below ground and eventually flowered long after the cuttings had. I dug one up, and took cuttings this last winter. They are in the greeenhouse. The potted one is behind the cuttings, so I intend to start fresh from cuttings each year now.
Actually I dont think the above is canary bird which is single. It may be Williams double yellow.
Canary bird is one of the earliest to flower. Felley Priory have it in flower at the same time as bluebells.
Taylors have a clematis called Miss Christine
David Austin have a golden flowered climbing rose called Christine
Have you got Allium karataviense? they have a couple of broad grey leaves and flower later on in the year, after the usual ones that flower for Chelsea
That is a line about 6 ft long. About 50 bulbs that were dug up as tiddlers a couple of years ago and then grown on. I will use them as cut flowers.
