Sorry should say spring bulbs, not sting bulbs, but that's the auto correct for ya!

Thank you seaside oldie...I had written down Canterbury Bells, so might include them and the delphiniums.

Thank you kate1123... Kind of forgot about some sting bulbs and not heard of mahonia. I'll check it out.

Hello, I'm planning on what to plant for next year. The area is around my vegetable plot. It's a raised board, south facing, but gets some shade as its surrounded by other gardens. I want to attract bees and butterflies and have a cottage feel. I'm going for whites, pale blues and pale pinks, with maybe a stunning dark red/ purple or black plant for contrast and impact. How does the following combination sound? Alliums Aquilegia Verbena Bonariensis Lupins Buddleia A Japanese Maple Feel free to make any suggestion or comments, I'm sure there are loads of plants I haven't even considered due to my limited knowledge of plants. Thanks in advance, Tina

It came up last year and again this year.

The flowers are pink on upright stems, flower are like little bells, leaves look shamrock shaped .

Any ideas?

When do you buy your seeds?

Figrat, how do you organise your collection in a calendar sequence? Do you have a special box or divider system.

Thank you, I do keep my seeds in an air tight box in the garage. I hadn't thought about putting them in the fridge.

Paper clips are a good idea too!

Hi, I'm really lucky, at the bottom of my garden is a greenhouse and vegetable plot. The is a raised board down there too, but no plants. We just move in last year. What plants would be good? I was guessing plants or flowers that attract bees and butterflies or do any plants help keep pests away or encourage wild life to eat the pests? All plant/ flower suggestions are welcome, thank you x
