New Year's Day 2017 Flower Count

Posted: 30/12/2016 at 09:26

I've had a prelim. look around, we have violets, can't find any Cyclamen coum and no hellebores even close.

We'll be here Dove. Both days. It would be good to see you

I think I'll say no to the raspberries though, thank you. They don't do well here, maybe when I've improved some more soil.

Records were broken here last year, but, as Dove, it doesn't seem a high count likely this year. We've had several days of frost to wipe out the stragglers.

If Sunday is the predicted wet am I allowed to do it on Monday?

The gravel is over a membrane GD, it's where I used to stand all the babies in pots before I planted them out. I cut a hole in it to start them going, the soil is a bit too hard really. I have some in grass, the ones in shade do best in there in the same stiff soil. I must put some in a proper piece of garden and give them a chance to thrive.

Tilia petiolaris

I know this as  Tilia tomentosa 'Petiolaris', which suggests a cultivar to me and maybe grafting needed, but not a plant I know first hand.

I had a look at the RHS website and it seems to have even more synonyms,

weeping trees rarely (if ever) seed to weeping trees, the weepyness is a sport and reproduced by grafting

Maybe not Liri, I've never had acid soil to try them in

can't see too clearly but has the look of a willow

I've seen them in sun and shade. They don't like stiff clay. I associate them with chalk.
