Do you grow Aconitum's?

Posted: 07/11/2014 at 11:08

They are very poisonous, but as usual, a slight exaggeration by the press. I would always wear gloves, but that is all.

Heavy frost here, had to scrape ice off the car.

Hoping to plant some more tulips today.

Verdun I am thinking about some Pennisetum next year, which would you recommend that are likely to be hardy up North.

I received a download film of place in Artic where I will be staying. It was filmed in June, and still looked very cold.

Have a good day everyone.

All the Cannas and Dahlias are now out of the ground, the cannas in pots, and the Dahlias in the porch drying, the OH does not like this!

Still sunny, but very cold.

Morning all, very cold, but sunny.

Congratulations Dove, today is also the 23rd anniversary of my arriving in Sheffield. First night I was on call, and covering the Burns Unit.

As gardeners I think we are able to adapt to whatever we get. If it is mild, some stuff survives that might otherwise die, and, if it is cold more pests get killed off.

Perennial planting time?

Agastache in particular are not that hardy here [ Yorkshire ], so I would leave them potted up.

Morning all.

Very cold, but sunny here, trying to motivate myself to go and dig up some Cannas.

Evening all, cold but sunny here today, and colder still according to forecast. Had a lovely walk on the moors today, thought some sunlight would be good for blues.

Just making a ratatouille to go with some lamb chops.

Have a good evening.
