Ever been had ??

Any named variety will be sold as one bulb at a price somewhere between excessive and ridiculous Rb.

For the white carpet you want Galanthus nivalis, bog-standard snowdrops. 

When is the best time to sow strawberries in the UK?

I don't believe the blue strawberries are real. Has anyone seen any growing?

Anyone done any gardening today?

Great gardening day. Working through the cutting off of last year's top growth. Found an elder growing into the Cornus mas, trunk must have been 3 inches across and I hadn't noticed. Cut back but I doubt I can get it out. Removed some of the mini forest of ash, field maple and other volunteers though.

There are some aches, I've been working on a slope

Dove, re letting more light in. It helps the weeds germinate more efficiently

Japanese anenome

I find a lot of invasive plants are difficult to get started. Jap anemones have never got established here (I still have hope and the space). Chinese lanterns were also slow to take.

Red robin help needed!

I'm with Dave on that one. I use to be reluctant to cut back but have proved to myself that it's the way to go.

The turning point was some years ago when I had 2 laurels limping along. The electricity wires people dropped a tree branch on one and snapped it. I cut it right back and within a year it was bigger than the one I'd left alone 

Clumps of crocus with no flowers

They look like crocus to me as well, that lighter line down the middle is a bit of a giveaway and grape hyacinths tend to be floppier looking than that.
