The planters are a great idea and so colourful.

Davids10, your plants are so much more advanced than here in Wiltshire. I'm still waiting for wallflowers and Tulips, but they won't be long.

Just looking through old photos and found this taken in 2006, so glad that project is over and it is now planted

Lovely pictures everyone.

Beautiful Magnolia, my Magnolia 'Betty' is still in bud and will be for weeks yet. I don't know the names of the daffodils as they were from a friends garden.

I hope they come true from seed as I am now pricking them out to grow on.

Also Californian Poppy to fill any gaps in the garden, that's if I can actually find room in the greenhouse.

I collect lots of different seeds when dry, and  try and grow them on.

Thanks for the quick reply, I have just looked up the name and pictures and that is it.

I am growing these from last years seeds, so now I can actually label them correctly, Thanks

Last year I sowed a small area with a wild flower mix, I think I can identify some Alyssum, Californian Poppy, Cornflower, Cosmos, Poppy, Blue annual Phlox, but there is a magenta one I don't know.

Any help appreciated.

I went out this morning to take photos of whatever was in flower, it's now 6pm. It's been such a warm sunny day here that I just carried on gardening.

I don't have any pretty Hellebores only the stinking one, I think that's the name.

lovely pictures CharlieBot

Kitty 2

The contorted Hazel is in a round 6 foot  built container, it only gets fed twice a year with pelleted chicken manure, I usually do this just before I know it's going to rain otherwise the garden smells , then a layer of bark mulch on top to keep the moisture in. Planted in full sun, they are very slow growing for a tree. The catkins this year have been exceptional 5" long. Hope this helps.

kitty 2, yes its a contorted Hazel and about 20 years old, there are 2 others in the garden, but are only about 6 years old and not as many catkins on.

Berghill I have just been out and found tiny, tiny red flowers, as you said. I do pick the nuts in the autumn and eat them.

Hello everyone,

Just taken photos of the garden today, to show what is in flower. Started cutting back last years perennials and generally clearing up.

I love seeing all the photos, so thank you.
