I knew it looked familiar, it got posted twice

Not bay or portugal laurel.

Not familiar with that holly but wouldn't be surprised it it was a holly

Hi Panda

I've never been to Hyde Hall. It's on my list

Identification Please

Posted: 20/03/2015 at 23:09

Hi PinkFern, it's a Hypericum. 

Might be H. androsaemum, aka Tutsan. A photo of the whole shrub would confirm (or not)

Snowflake maybe, Leucojum vernum.

I agree muscari, there are many species, only resembling M. armenium on close inspection.

Have a look at M comosum for fluffiness

Royal Wedding Poppy

this one?

If so it will probably flower in June eventually but not 2015. A few perennials will flower fist year from seed but I wouldn't expect these to.

It will be a while before my toms go to the GH 

Hardy plants are tough, they will grow faster with the daytime warmth of the GH y but for years I grew them all outside with no protection

PS

A cold GH gives some weather protection but you can't keep it warm.The temperature out there on a winter's night is just as low as on the roof and colder than up against the house. 

Yes, we have thermometers everywhere

Ventilation is very important

OH's welding mask photos weren't that great Claire.

But the eclipse viewing was very good
