I think you are right fidget, I think i only started getting success when I collected my own seed. I wonder why?

I did not used to be able to grow them, but I loved them so much, because of many Scottish holidays, that I kept trying.

Verdun is right; cool, semi-shade, moist conditions preferred and leaf mold seems to have helped.

They are not long lived so I sow seed each year, in the autumn, in an unheated greenhouse, the winter cold seems to help them germinate. Last years seeds have just germinated and should flower next year. Most of the existing plants seemed to have started growing, so my collection is increaing. Sorry does that sound like I am bragging, if not then I am.

Hi Chicky, the stream in the photo is the outflow from thr pond which then joins the real stream. the little purple flowers are the perennial sweet pea [ Lathyrus vernis ] pretty plant, easy from seed

KEF, I would love an under gardener, I have always fancied having someone to boss around out there. Some how I think i might lose those Meconopsis. Your more likely to find me in the summer house, due to bad behavior!

Love those Magnolia

Thankyou Mrs Garden. The tree is a Corylopsis. Not good camera work by me, as the flowers are yellow.

Some of the pictures with the house in, are a bit of a cheat, as the house is split into two, although we own most of the garden.

Thanks SGL., the back is getting better, although I am taking it easy, well if truth be told I am horizontal.

                    <p>David, sorry to hear of your loss, and your comments are most welcome as an ex-NHs worker. One of the most demoralising things for staff was to constantly be criticised by people who were largely doing it for political gain.</p> <p>There are bad hospitals, and bad staff, but, that is no different from in any other walk of life.</p> <p>Pleased to say my back is much better today and, I mowed the lawn in the rain. [ Moss patch is closer to the truth ] I keep trying to decrease the amount of lawn I have, by digging new beds, but perversely, it then takes longer to mow the lawns, having to go round all the edges.</p> <p>Had a pair of mandarin ducks on the pond earlier, they fly in occasionally from Abbeydale lake, which is about 2 miles down the road. Always lovely to see them, even if they do look a bit "alien".</p>
