Thank you Nut, I did get them a couple of days ago and sent you a PM, they are lovely and one is out in flower now.

My PM's are playing up, deleted a few and the lot went so maybe it didnt get to you, so sorry, I have your seeds ready and will dig the bulbs and Pulmanaria probably Monday if we dont get anymore snow.

Why wont they flower for 3 to 4 years, I grow mine in pots every year or is it just that particular one?

When to plant out...

There is far too much faffing around these days, too much on the market to get you to spend your money.

 The most I ever use is chicken pellets and homemade compost for mulch. Nothing wrong with my garden.

I know certain plants dont grow well here, being 960ft above, and always windy, but I plant what I like and it takes it chance. Roses are not brilliant, the air is to clean and pure, so they say anyway!

Stick them in a pot about 4inches deep, probably wont grow now, but whats to lose,  its only a bit of compost. Give it a try.

I have never seen a strawberry plant tuber, they are usually roots, either attached to the mother plant or bare rooted fron GC or nursery.  Can you take a photo. Click on the tree icon and follow insructions.

Well done Matty, xx

Hope Verduns mum is ok. Mine not good, finally got to speak to doctor at 6.30, he said he would come in ' on the off chance, as he was passing' next Tuesday, suppose better than nothing.

Burns night 25th Jan. Don't know many Scottish people in Devon/cornwall though!

I think Lidl have slipped up there, well, down here anyway! 

Which garden would you pick?

Johannele is coming over from Finland, how lovely, I couldn't choose, but having spent a long time living in Kent/East Sussex, I can recommend Sissinghurst and Gr Dixter, (because I lived very close)there are so many in that area and all are beautiful . Makes me feel homesick! 

I suppose May is a bit early, the Spring plants have finished and Summer ones not underway.. Should be a good showing of bluebells if you can find some woods.
