There are a lot more flower spikes this time Nut. I might have a little dig to find out if there are more bulbs or not.

They don't appear to multiply at all Nut. I am always hopeful that one day they might decide they like their location and spread.

I'll try to get a photo of the yellow ones on here.

I have those, they are a pale blue, muscari Comosum? I think and there are another variety that are bigger than the blue ones and are yellow which I bought a few years ago called Golden Fragrance. You can also get white muscari too, muscari Botryoides Album. I got them all from Taylors at their charity bulb sale which they have in October or November every year.

strawberries in raised beds

I have strawberries in a raised bed, about 7 inches deep and the soil is mixed with general purpose compost. This will be their 4th year and no probs so far. You could try in a hanging basket.

Bargain Buy of 2015

What has been your best buy? Mine was a flaming katy for £1.00 and a slipper orchid £9.99. Never seen one 'in the flesh' before so hope I can keep it going.

Shrub ID

This has been growing in our hawthorn hedge and this year decided to be 12ft tall with read berries. I thought it migh be a pyracantha but not sure which one as there are no thorns.

Mystery plant at the bottom of my garden. I've never seen this before and it isn't something I planted.
