Does anyone know what Monty Don bought at the Malvern Spring Festival this year?

Love in a Mist - Nigella

Yes I've grown different colours of Nigella in the past as well, I had some lovely pink ones one year.

Even us experienced gardeners sometimes need a bit of reassurance when we're talking about precious plants, that's one of the reasons I like coming on here. I'm relieved to hear that it'll be a while yet before my Rozanne shows it's face again. I only got it last summer and most although not all, of my other Geraniums are showing at this stage. There's no reason for me to think anything is wrong with mine either.

Hostafan1 I bought African Bride Nigella from Sarah Raven last year. They were a bit sturdier than the normal Nigella and a nice change. They did'nt set much seed 'tho that might have been down to the very wet weather here.

Looking forward to it as always. The best gardening programme on TV.

Mine arrived 13.2.16 and were potted into 7.5cm pots, they all had a bit of a root system and a tiny tiny bit of top growth. I'm pleased enough with them and look forward to growing them on. They're currently out back which is covered and stays well above freezing. When the weather warms up a bit they'll get moved to a grow house with the door open and then outside in early summer.

I've grown both Matucana and Cupani and last year on the advice from my Daughter, I decided to grow something different.

April In Paris, white with lilac edging and the most delicious scent. I picked them every week and they grew to be strong sturdy plants with lots of flower stems on them. I grew them from seed bought  from Sarah Raven and can't say enough good things about them.

Dahlia's - recommended sources?

Some of the best I have grown are Downham Royal, Nuit D Ete, Bishop of Llandoff, Selina, Waltzing Matilda, all from tubers, various suppliers and from seed, any of the Yankee Doodle Dandy series as well as a Pom Pom mix which turned out to be great. Good luck.

Thanks Kleipieper, it's on BBC2 from 20.00hrs until 21.00hrs. I'm not a fan of MD but starved of gardening programmes at the moment.
