OH has been busy creating a home for bumblebee. It's facing south and inside is clean and dry.  Is there anything else we can do to encouage a tenant to take up residence. How about smearing honey on the entrance? I have surrounded it with flowering crocus in pots which produce pollen to draw them in.

For bulbs I like deJager of Kent, Crocus plants, lovely condition but sometimes top price. You soon forget the price, it's the quality that counts I think.  Parker dutch bulbs I wouldn't touch again, J P Morgan packaging not good so would not order again from them. Groves nurseries for violets excellent

this is just a personal appraisal of the ones I have used.

The RHS mag The  garden,  is selling Violas. There is a picture in there of the three colours. They look like large violets with taller stems. Do hope they look like that when they arrive, otherwise I shall be sorry I ordered them.

If you tell us what your friends dog was, we could start a nation wide search for another one that needs a loving home. Trawl the Internet etc.
