Thanks Fairy. Some had rotted but there were still quite a few. They are in now so I will see what happens

Hanging baskets

Posted: 13/04/2014 at 11:48

I've got this type of hanging baskets from shopping channels- QVC and Ideal world. Also got some from e bay. It's a good idea to also get the special things to plant up with the plants which helps get the water to the centre of the basket.

I've just found some tulip bulbs. They have started to sprout. What is the best thing to do with them now? Is it worth planting them?

Morning all.

Must get on soon- my bedroom looks like a bomb has hit it but I'd always rather be outside than in. As I've been away quite a bit in the last month I have 3 cases all partly unpacked. I am determined to unpack them all, then put away everything that doesn't go straight intoa case to take for my week away. Then I'll at least come back to some order.

Everyone seems to have a busy day planned.

I'll put some pics on from last summer foryou Lily- everything I grow is in pots- but Ilove plants so much that I have quite afew pots in a very smallgarden.

 The bottom left corner.

 Here is my only bit of real garden in front of my living room window.

 Viewed from other side.

 The front

 Along left side of garden

 The right side down to gate

 View down garden from top right

 Upthe side passage with what were my new ferns- only thing that would grow down there


My phone has broken so I think that I've lost the pics I've taken in last few months but used sons phone to take some pics yesterday. The daffs are a bit past their best now but I love this combination every spring.
