HELLO FORKERS!

An unexpected afternoon off Always the best kind. Kizzy is very pretty, she looks like some sort of poodle/lab cross.

Hosta- don't let them get you down.

It's stopped raining and there is a small slither of blue sky

Out of control...

You could cut the taller stems off the big one. It won't do any harm and it will look bushier. If you pick out the tips of new leaves more often than not the plant will grow in both directions so you can encourage it to bush up in places.

The off cuts could be used for cuttings. I'd be tempted to leave the small one as it is and repot when it starts growing again in Spring

It's a succulent of some sort. I used to have one. Maybe something like zebra?

A new bloom from the NYD flower count

To cut back or not?

I love Bowles Mauve too. I trim mine throughout the year, I just take off the tall flower spikes when they've finished. This seems to help to prevent it from getting too woody. I only have a couple of flowers on mine,so am leaving them be for now.

Think they were the first plants I had a go at taking cuttings from, so easy

It's must be so strange to see crocus, daffs and grape hyaciths in bloom now.

Everything is very green and lush here, cooler but no frost.

Rudebekias x 2 types,

annual trailing stock,

Primoses

Goblin gardillia,

White sweet rocket

Bowles Mauve- always flowering!

Cloth of Gold wallflower- I've had this for years

Pulmonaria- Thank you nut, just noticed it flowering today. It's pretty shady where it is, but looks like it will do well there  The flowers are red. It's one that has retained it's label but can't read the writing ha ha. I love these plants

Hardy pink geranium and

a single cosmos and candytuff flower

It was good to be outside and have a look at what's been going on. Shanta daisies have buds on them and the pestenmons cuttings are growing really well should be good plants in Summer. Too wet to do anything though, everything is soggy. Starting a written record this year

Happy new year Marion. Don't often post on your thread but I've enjoyed looking and reading all about your garden.

I grow for the pollinaters too. You are an inspiration, looking forward to what our growing year has in store for us
