japanese anemones

I have saved more than I had hoped for, just had a walk about!

Delphiniums, lupins, erygium, honesty, alliums, some big thing begining with Z, ? something like a lily, (or maybe is a lily). Sambuca, geranium been there all winter so must  be evergreen, few more things, hebe, euonymous etc.

what I have lost though, is the big tall echiums, I couldnt keep the fleece on them in the wind and they are black and bent over. Shame, I was looking forward to seeing them, they are like palm trees!

I am going to try moving some bits of the japanese anemone, maybe a bit later, not sure really when to try it.

Beautiful Marion, they really are a good all rounder, once you have them, you have them forever, well worth the money. Mine flowered right up to first frosts, and the greenery is still there now.

I have never tried cuttings, you say do them in about May/June then?

TIPS ........

My tip: We have all tried eggs shells as a slug deterrent, save the shells and pop them in the oven, just on the shelf, next time you bake, they come out even more spiteful and crunchy and a lot less messy to scrunch up.

I use the knee pads, keeps your knees dry as well as comfortable.

Click on your name at the top of page and select my messages, then fill in the new message box, with your address, perfectly safe, I have sent lots of things out to other people.

But isn't it to cold to put them in the unheated greenhouse yet Adam? The problem is more about housing them indoors.

I still have some tried and tested coronaria seeds spare, if any one wants some.

Plants from cuttings

I put a couple of bit of fuchsia in water last Saturday, they have already made roots.

Strangely enough, although not many daffs are out yet, I do have a few tulips, probably because I didn't plant them so deep.
