Thank for your kinds thoughts everyone, we are still hanging in there.i asked the doctor for some sleeping pills as he gets agitated through the night, nothing forth coming, even the Marie Curie nurse told the receptionist it was urgent. Can't be bothered to fight anymore, ( me, not him ) I gave him a Nightol, hasn't worked yet.

Fridges and propagators, natures own is best.

Mike, are you telling the OP to wait about five days before planting up?
I don't think that's such a good idea.

I don't know why they called them all crocosmia, my crocosmia have the little corms like rows of beads, the Monbretia is just little pale bulbs that come up one at a time.

crocosmia leaves are erecting and strong, Monbretia are floppy.

Have you got yours yet?

Is that so bad then, getting a work permit.?

plenty of Brits available to do care work or fruit/veg picking, they just don't want to.

not many years ago people would fight to get a job fruit picking, even my daughter, aged 10 at the time, went asparagus picking, and her friends loved potato harvest time, boost their pocket money no end.

The reason I said Agapanthus is that my Monbretia is only about 6" tall so far, very pale bright green and standing erect, not floppy.

my Kaffir Lily's not up at all yet and it's a bit thin for day lily?

Amy how did you get a photo that small, I can't enlarge it either, what are those plugs.

those top ones look lovely, I would be well pleased with those.

i bought, yes folks, bought! trailing begonia plugs from Wyvale this year, half inch tall, they doubled in a week, 5.99 for 20, the reason I didn't buy on line was because they weren't dispatching quick enough. I got mine on the 7th March so plenty of time to grow on.
