Thanks dove, will get on with that now, so if anyone needs me, i'll be in the leek bed getting inventive.
I'm clearing the veg plot to prepare seed beds etc, but still have a boatload of leeks, they are getting used up steadily but I could do with them not being just there. Can they be lifted and stored or can I lift them and heal them in somewhere else?
5 small tortoiseshells, 1 peacock, 1 yellow brimstone, a massive bumble bee wedged in a small crocus and too many small bees to count at rillington, north Yorkshire. Not so grim oop north.
wahoo look what I did.
thankyou Berghill, I'm going to leave it for a couple of years to get well established, I'm building a new Japenese inspired garden around the back and theres a bed that is in shade so hopefully it will be happy there and if it looks lonely I'll just have to go buy it a friend.
Hello again, just done some nebbing and if you put in helleborus pennys pink into the site finding bit when you first fire up the internerd it brings up a whole gallery of pictures.
Left it all night to load, the photo has gone from the file but has not appeared on here. I give up. It's called penny's pink, it stands about 2' high in it's pot and the flowers are a open cup form. The top 6" of the stalk branch so that there can be as many as 8 flowers to a stalk, and the flowers are held in a more upturned position than the orientalis generally is. The plant has quite an open structure to it giving it a sense of movement. The leaves are the typical 5 lobed, but rather than the spear shaped of the orientalis , each lobe is spoon shaped with a point and more pronounce serrations, they are dark green with pale green colouring of the veins and dark red stems.
I cant send a photo, I've taken them, got them into my puter, pressed the little picture icon in the toolbar above where, got to the point where it says save, press save but nothing happens. Am I doing something wrong?
I'll leave it alone, I promise. I did just pop into the G/C for some yellow rattle seed and you know what it's like, I just had a look around and there was this lovely new hellebore with lovely big round lobed leaves and massive upturned flowers on 18" long stalks, I'm quite shocked that I only came home with one.
