Hello Marion, just posted that I have snowdrops flowering too.  

What's your day been like?

Agree with Artjak zoomer....name amd shame.

I buy from people I now trust.  Can track my deliveries so know exactly where they are and when I will receive them.  (got new supplier for plants due on Tues so,will know if this one is good.  However, an exchange of emails suggest excellence)

Day today?  Good this morning.  Wet and mild now.  

Got snowdrops in flower. 

HELLO FORKERS!

Did a check on my plants this morning....all looks good except for one Heuchera,  Berry Smoothy. A quick tug confirmed vine weevils.  Not a root to be seen.  I had treated all my Heucheras, etc in autumn but I think I missed this one.  

Excavated soil, extracted weevils, washed my plant after cutting it back and dividing it and replanted elsewhere.  It will be just fine.  Vine weevils are delicious on toast  so that's breakfast sorted for tomorrow. (a locally well known cornishman....some 30 miles east....eats road kill.  All sorts of road kill. Apparently he hasn't bought meat for years.  Thought I would share this at lunchtime with ??ou guys)

Rain here now..........hmmmmmm! 

Cytisus plant - will it recover?

There is a thread about small online nurseries currently on the go.  Salino has posted a very informative link to numerous suppliers.  

There are nurseries supplying small plants now, the garden centres will soon be supplying Perennials in 9 cm pots.   All these can be potted on to produce good size plants for summer.

Re your broom Bex, yes the period of flowering is quite short but we all love them.  After flowering I prune back ...not past green wood....to encourage a nice bushy evergreen mound.  For me they make nice foils then to summer and winter plants.

I would determine what your soil, including PH levels, and conditions are like and then  go online to check our what plants will grow there.
