bulbs in pots

Posted: 04/03/2013 at 19:16

Hi nut, I have a lovely little single Iris in a pot that has been coming up for years with complete neglect. Mine probably could do with a bit of feeding and maybe some new soil, but it keeps coming back.

Seeds are up

I would yes GG, although not tried it myself. I often wonder how the lovely drifts of spring flowers that we see in hedgerows etc get to be there in the first place.

March in your Garden

Good news Rain, growing from seed is brilliant. Looks like nothing then all of a sudden.........life.

Definately a different garden this year in Spring to last year. It was really mild last year and all my crocuses were out by now. This year they are just started to bud and the daffs look like they are going to put on a better show.

Overall the garden is looking good for this time of year, I have the Cloth of Gold and the Bowles Mauve wallflowers still flowering, primoses galore. Lupins and Aqueligias are showing fresh growth as well as the clemantis, Montana and Jackamini.

Big surprises for me are that the annual Scabious that I grew from seed last year have survived desite the frost and snow and are putting on fresh growth and a lots of the Snapdragons also grown from seed seem to be turning into woody shrubs and are sprouting new growth

I've just seen an unexpected crocus due to pop up in the lawn. Every year Spring is a surprise to me but this one I know I wouldn't haven't planted there.

Seeds are up

Hi all, Spent a couple of enjoyable hours in my newly converted shed this afternoon.

Pricked out the cleome seedlings, got about 25, still find it hard not to prick on every single one that germinates. Think I've got 4 viable white snapdragons from my first sowings this year.

Had a rejig of the cold frames and moved some germinated seeds from the kitchen outside into the frames to harden them off. 

Not sown any thing else  lately apart from some more snapdragons. There is a tray indoors which has germinated but they are called unknown. Think they were collected from some garden visit but I have no idea.

Thanks for the infor Gardengirl re the teasels, didn't realise you had to shake the seeds out of them.

Glad that the seeds are up for everyone

It Is Not Spring Yet !!!

Not long now, that's when the days really start to lengthen. 

I know there is always some critiscm of the clock changes in this county but I really enjoy them. They mark the seasons and the passing of the time for me, just in the same way as the solstices do.

It Is Not Spring Yet !!!
