I can knit and contribute to a forum more or less at the same time. It beats sitting in front of a TV watching 'celebrities' and listening to canned laughter

All a matter of opinion I think Carol. Hang about and you'll get all the opinions.

 

Stratification in warmer climates (Cornwall)

Posted: 09/01/2015 at 23:00

I had to resort to the fridge last winter. The success rate wasn't as good as usual.

I think the changes in temperature are helpful. If we get another mild winter I'll have themi n and out of the fridge, a few days in the freezer, back in the garden in rotation. 

It won't be a problem this year, temperatures are very up and down and we've had some good frosts

Leaves: to remove or not remove?

Bulbs won't have any problem but if there are other smaller plants in there they may be swamped

Early Spring

Yes, it doesn't hold them back much does it. 

A very variable winter so far. Temperature up and down like a yo-yo. 13C now and predicted over night, dropping during tomorrow by 10 degrees, then up again the next day.

Good for breaking the dormancy of all my seeds, the warmth we had last year left a lot ungerminated

Good garden centre/nursery

A good GC for me would stock  a larger variety of plants than is usually seen. Too many have the same mass-produced, latest fashion plants at high prices.

Until this happens I'll stick with nurseries and plant fairs.

Go for some species as Berghill suggests Dove. You could get a new variety when they cross. Call it Dove and sell bulbs for £400 a piece on ebay. 

 

Early Spring

It's spring here

Very warm and big changes since the NYD count. A few aconites and snowdrops, more hellebores. Some fairly tall narcissi but no heads turned down yet
