Some plants from my 'Window Garden'

My Hibiscus Sinensis coming back into flower and my Cyclamen Persicum which has been in flower since Late August


What next?

I would wait until April to direct sow preferably

Perfect planting weather today

Planted out some Polyanthus, A Helleborus niger, a Bleeding Heart, A Gorgeous Primula called 'Silver Lace', Some Asiatic Lily's and a wonderfully fragrant Garden Pink called 'Roselly Pink'

Hope everyone else is enjoying their day.

Please could someone tell me what this plant is?

Its an Iris of some kind definitely. They grow from little bulbs.

I would say it is one of the Reticulata varieties at this time of year.

Thats lovely Dove. I wish I had the enthusiasm to do that. Direct Sowing does seem like a possibility at the moment.

The ground hasnt frozen once here this Winter so I guess it would be pretty easy with this lovely weather coming.

Definitely worth it Verdun. I'm in Telford tomorrow to meet all our Suppliers, Going to be another long day.

The greenhouse should be up on Saturday ready for me to get going and organise all the 'junk' I have lying around :P

Music in the Garden

Posted: 03/03/2014 at 20:44

Bird Song is enough for me. I listen to so much music whilst not gardening that it seems nicer without it

Greenhouse should be up on the weekend, and with the lovely weather promised to us it looks like perfect timing ^_^
