what a beauty  not jealous one bit

I went far royal flush in the end.  nice red  foliage in spring and smaller than arsendsii so I it come closer to the front of the border rather than the back were neighbours could possibly come in contact with it. 

I am going to get stainless steel one day looks great.

lovely colour stainless steal, I might give one or two ago and hope nobody foolish enough to eat them

I would like Aconitum carmichaelii Arsendsii in my border I got a perfect picture in my head how good it would look , but I am a bit worried it might poison my neighbours  is it really as poisons as they say, even to touch? I wanted to plant one next to my white currant, I dont really pick them but the birds have a good do out of them would it poison the birds as well? 

Any good ideals for something similar blue about 5ft, flowers late in the season.

rotting lily bulbs

I like to sit them on a little layer of sharp sand, If planted in pots permanently john inns No3 would be best. did you put any crocks/stones etc at the bottom of the pot to improve drainage?  I left my pots of lilys in a rain shawdow at the side of the house for now because it will not stop raining.

It's my birthday

People don't seem to be surprised when they see me pottering about in the garden. I think most people are used to seeing me now. I get the same comment "You can do my garden "

I think I get more looks when I am visiting the GC

Hi , I plant mine in seed trays, but dont cover them. I had mine in the house to start off. They like it on the dry side aswell
