4 seasons in 1 day here.

Managed to pot up 13 Cannas, just got to bring them inside, without making too much mess.

Have also cut back collection of Miscanthus', as lots of new growth appearing. Most of the flower heads were decimated by the December snow, so looking very tatty.

Time for lunch, and then a spot of weeding.

Yvie Garrya can get very large.

If you have no where warm and light to put them, then you might as well pot them up, put them in the greenhouse, and be prepared to fleece them.

Some peoples views will differ, but if possible I would not really want to that, unless you have no other option.

Congratulations to your parents Dove, that really is something to celebrate. My first marriage lasted 2 years, although I am doing better this time, at 21 years.

Hi Primrose Cottage.

I always pot my cannas up in early March, but they do stay in a heated house until early May, then harden off in a cold greenhouse. I don't put them in the garden till late May early June.

Hope that helps.

Morning all.

looks like you have all been struggling to get onto the site, like me.

Supposed to be sunny here but it is not, harrummpph.

Going to pot up the cannas today, then they will go in the bay window, behind a sofa. OH hates it, especially when a slug appears.

Have a good day whatever you are doing.

I am still trying to decide if it is genuine or not.

Hoooraayy. Just seen the weather forecast, and we might reach 10 C by Saturday.

What's flowering in your garden today?

Dove, the TVR Tuscan was a real car. As you say fantastic sounding, and properly pretty.

Seed Sowing Time Yet?

BL, I sowed the GW Zinnias a week ago, and they have germinated. Not grown them before, but they look zingy, if that is a word.

Hopefully an Audi A1. It will be nice to have room for compost and stuff in the boot, but whether that compensates for not having a soft top, well that's another matter.
