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
