Planning for the coming year

Posted: 13/01/2016 at 21:22

The variegated euonymus are really reliable, I like those.

I don't like the growth style of vinca so much, sort of flat and straggly.

I'd like some white Cyclamen coum for a start.

I have chimonanthus Tetley, I grew it from seed, at least 20 years to get flowers, first ones last year. Lovely but not much goiung for it out of flower. I'm trying to think of something not too overwhelming to grow through it

Might be Dove

I bought a variety of viridis last year, it's out there and flowering but I don't know if it's really hardy enough to survive a proper winter. But maybe we won't get one. Nothing lower than -2 forecast at the moment

I like fritillary's garden but with someone to do all the tree work and shredding so I can just mess around with plants

Is this Asparagus seedling?

I can't see these very clearly but they look like dicots and asparagus is a monocot.

But don't rely on me, I've never grown asparagus

Dividing Clematis

I was given some dug up 'outriders' last year from 2 clematis. They started to grow and have now died back, I hope that's due to winter. I await with interest to see what happens in spring. They're potted up, outside

What new seeds will you be trying this year?

I've got some on order from the HPS, I've forgotten what they are

I've resisted looking at too many catalogues, I know what happens later on. I have a good collection of germinated and waiting to germinate seeds out there already and more to sow around March. Come April a 20' x 8' GH and the area surrounding it starts to shrink and the babies are homeless

Rose hips- culinary varieties

I haven't made wine for years Bob.  The proportion of really good ones was low in relation to the not great and the undrinkable.

I find a lot of seeds germinate much more quickly if you save and sow them yourself. I assume they haven't gone completely dormant in that time, unlike a packet of seeds that would have to be completely dried before packeting

Rose hips- culinary varieties

I've made rose hip wine. It tasted a bit too much like rose hip syrup for my taste. Maybe I put too much sugar in. A lot of home-made wine recipes are over sweet for my taste
