Berghill, you have whetted my appetite for Alpines again.  Delightful.

Had a phone call from my niece describing the "most delicious cup cakes of all time".   And then went into great detail about all the delicious ingredients she will be using. She is making them for her colleagues at work.......for her colleagues?   What about me? I asked.  "maybe, if I've  enough left" she said. 

Sorry folks to burden you with this...I mean the world has so many serious issues right now.....but I really had to get this out of my system.  right now I'm suffering ! 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Been busy folks I see.

Wimtersong, ophiogon is a little difficult isn't it?  In dark soil it gets lost.  I think it looks good just behind campanula dicksons gold....an evergreen yellow mound.  Or next to a yellow,hellebore perhaps.  Or heuchera. However hosta Patriot is a good companion throughout spring and summer.  My favourite though is fire and ice.  

Ive tried different ways to accommodate ophiopogon.........I currently grow some in a terracotta pot with white gravel.  

Help with planting out my little lilies

No, they're Panda's Nut.  If they're in those pots just plant level with the soil

slugs on the run

Perhaps you did overwater it a bit Leigh.  It shouldnt need watering over winter very much at all.  However, I would complain asap. If you got it locally many gc 's offer a 5 year growth guarantee but, in any case, any reputable supplier would replace it.

on line purchase,,just email or phone.  You should get a replacemenot without sending yours.  locally take your plant in......your berberis is evergreen and tough.  It should be looking pretty good right now.

Hey, I do post pics.......albeit usually summer ones.  I've got quite a few hellebores so I might just post a few pics 

(trouble is if I'm in the garden I want to garden and not photograph stuff.....and I'm a lazeeeeeeee bloke too.  Got to get phone all way out of my pocket )

HELLO FORKERS!

Chicky you know you are my favourite.  that  cake looks delishush 

not a lot of rain here after all and it is now drying up.  Really mild.

sorry your tyres were flat Dove....so you had to drive your convertible instead.  It's a hard life 

got a phone call from a friend's friend........could I take a look at her garden?   her weeping willow has "lost its shape".  I was warned I might get this call.  She has a fairly large garden that apparently does need sorting.  I don't really want to get involved ...so far Ive just said it doesn't need pruning just yet!!!
