The one benefit of having a small paved garden- no mowing. It used to take me 2 hours to mow the lawn where I used to live.

What's the weather like in your area?

Haha Mike.

I must admit I put slow release granuels mixed with water saving gell when I make them up then try to feed with liquid feed weekly. Last year was too wet to give the liquid feed, it would have run straight through with the rain.

Yes they are plugs. They won't be delivered 'till April but they are really beautiful.

 

On the cheap note Ideal world shopping channel have 18 Hellebores for about £20 +£5p+p  today. It includes

           9 x Double Queen Mix     2 x Burgundy        2 x Pink Spotted                         5 x Anemone Flowered

 

hellebores in this range are:

  • Double queen mix - mix of double flowers good colour consistency without spots
  • Burgundy - rich burgundy cup-shaped flowers
  • Pink spotted - red pink flowers with a fairly regular and densely populated small purple spots towards the centre of each sepal
  • Anemone flowered - a delightful variety of hellebore in which each flower has an attractive ring of frilly petals

I must admit I am really tempted

I will be putting 3 in each of my 12" pots. You don't need too many as if fed they really do grow well.

I will be on the lookout for snowdrops in the pound shop- those really are beautiful.

All the gardens look really good.
