I have been told by a supplier some done by cuttings in the spring may not develop tubers and have been bred to concentrate growth more into flowering. Not sure if this is correct though? I wonder whether the use of growth retardant could affect tubeer production? The ones we had to try have produced tubers though
Or a ornamental quince, chanomeles? (sp?)
Could it be a camellia?
Up in County Durham it doesn't seem to do well in pots, last winter died right right back but did sprought a bit at btottom and broke eventually. There is one doing alright in a gravel herb bed in a sheltered walled south/east spot. This is at 800ft.
A vinca, perrriwinkle. There are some nice variegated forms, blue or purple flowers
Thrift, sSea Pinks, Armeria are all the same thgings
SEcond does look like a campanula. The ones with the the long belll flowers like campanula punctata rubra.
I did this last year, worked brilliantly.
I did Chinodoxia, crocus, tulips (two varieties) daffodil and narcissi.
Assume you could also add Iris reticulata for early colour. Layered on bulb size I think
It's a Hebe not sure of variety
Things seem to have started turning really early this year.
