Great photos, I really enjoy looking at them. The white peacock is stunning, I would imagine that they are quite rare?

Depth advice

I tend to go with at least twice the size of the bulbs. I have planted crocus/grape hyacinths deeper than that and they always seem to find there way through.

Great pics Bill, as others have said when it snows in the Uk, we don't seem to be anywhere prepared and the whole country seems to descend into chaos. I don't like it much but it does look beautiful

Hard plants to grow from seed

Posted: 30/10/2013 at 20:43

I always have trouble with delphs and larkspurs, don't think I've ever got a delph seed to germinate, not sure why? 

I grew verbena boneralis this year for the first time and they took an age to germinate, I put them in the fridge, out of the fridge, when I finally ignored them, they did well
