New Years Day flower count

Posted: 05/01/2013 at 17:18

We've done it here for years. It's varied between 50-60 species (if there hasn't been any frost up til then) and none at all (or can't see them for snow).

Seeds are up

It's time to play with the hardy stuff while the weather is reasonable.

I moved some things about today. Some primroses, seeded in the garden, transplanted to meadow, some violets with them. Cyclamen distributed here and there. It all takes a long time, I have to keep stopping to peer at new growth

Temporarily repotting amaryllis and hyacinths?

They'll look best in a clump. I'd have them out of the pot and spread them a bit, they're always well squashed and rather shallow in pots when you buy them

I spend so long deciding where to put things they sometimes don't get planted and sit in a pot all summer. Daft really, if I have put them in the wrong place I can always move them

I've potted my false sunflower but only because I haven't decided where to put it. It came from outside so I've put the pot outside.

My hardwood cuttings are outside. Inside warmth might bring them into leaf at the expense of roots. 

bind weed in compost bin!

If it's coming up from the bottom the fabric should stop it. You would need to get all the root out to be free of it but it could be done. I find the big white hedge bindweed much easier to get rid of than the little pink field bindweed.

Temporarily repotting amaryllis and hyacinths?

I like the hyacinths more after a year or two in the garden. Less of a heavy look to the blooms but still the lovely scent.
