rotting daff bulbs

In future you need lots of drainage in the pots. Better luck next year. Soon you will be able to buy daffs in pots which are in flower. Cheat. Plant the new small pots  into your large one for a colourful display

Hello to anyone in north Cornwall. Cornish planters in my village normally plant on the 14th Feb.Is anyone else waiting until later in the month to plant earlies

After the awful rain, it was a mild day in north Cornwall. So i put my winter woolies on and got stuck in to the garden.It was lovely being outside and looking at the bulbs being to appear. Like Monty i have a retriever dog and i think he enjoyed it to. The big surprise was the French lavender was in flower. 

Roll on spring.
