I emptied out a pot full of croscomia that I'd been carrying around with me for ages. Managed to split the crocrosmia, salvaged some self sown jacobs ladder and bleeding heart. They've been in there for ages but this is now popping up. It's leaves are slowly unfurling, I don't think I've seen it before.


 

It's about 1.5 " tall Thanks for any ideas

Gorgeous day here, at one point I was down to a t shirt, a first for the year Not a huge amount to do, just waiting for the seedlings to grow big enough to prick out. Still managed to spend most of the day outside. Rediscovered some perennials, over wintered in pots, thank you seed swop

Love the frame tigs and the lupins

I've got a couple of blue ones which are in are those old galvinised metal buckets/baths. I've never had a problem with snails, even though I've been expecting it

It does depend as Fishy says on lots of things. Perennials do take longer so a month isn't that long although it feels that way when you are waiting for them to come up. Has any of them germinated?
