I couldn't get them going here for years though they seeded everywhere in my last garden. They're beginning to take off now. 

First Spring Flowers

I love dandelions 

I've planted so much to keep me cheerful through the winter that I sometimes get flowering gaps later on

Mine had fabric like that, long since rotted, it is part of the propagator. I use newspaper now. It holds moisture and keeps the atmosphere damp so good if that's what's required. I don't use a propagator much so can't offer a lot of advice.

First Spring Flowers

I have my first Helleborus niger that's come back foe a second year and has grown. Feeling chuffed.

lots of snowdrops, aconites and other hellebores. Cyclamen coum and Crocus tommasinianus.

Not quite any narcissi, but some little irises in the cold GH. Hardy enough but I thought they'd drown in their pot outside. 

and a selection of scented winter flowering shrubs.

It will soon be spring (please)

and pulmonaria rubra, lots now and a few other pulmonarias

Hi  Verd 3 Meg for me would be internet heaven. I pay the same as everyone else but as a rural dweller I am subsidising everyone else and get a very poor service. Grrrrrrrrr.    I barely manage 1.5.


same here WW, sometimes it just stops for a few minutes then starts up again

No WUM on my forum. I love that ignore button. No kitchens either.

Do you think we should have a code word for cake Dove? So they don't notice

Gardener come.....

I enjoyed my nursing career for some years, especially the psychiatric part. I wouldn't have met OH, also a nurse, without that. But, with hindsight, a change of direction after the kids were born would have been good.
