The bluebells are just opening here and the apple blossom which is very late for both, but the good news is there are lots of bees and butterflies out today so great hopes for good pollination this year.

My wine red tulips are opening now and my double yellow, orange, red ones are still stunning,  The forget -me-nots are making a fine show before the blurebells swamp them .

My late tulips are hot on the heels of the early ones this year.  These ones are a lovely deep red, very dramatic.

This is an echevaria, gardeningfantic.  Not sure of the species but looks like peacockii.

Anenomes ?

Posted: 30/04/2013 at 22:48

Anemones (Just think "No ones eneny") are very easy.  You do not have tp worry if you are planting them the right way up as they right themseves.  Try in a pot or windowbox.  Anemone blanda will spread its lovely blue and white flowers and the wood anemone, Anemone nemorosa a little later. Anemone de Caen can be planted any time the ground isn't frozen ot flooded and will flower in the spring, summer and autumn, 8 weeks after planting.  The ones in the pictures flowered last year and were left in to flower now.  Buy from a good nursery who specialise in anemones.
