HELLO FORKERS!

Yes, tell woody he is sorely missed here 

Yellow is the colour.......

I love the colour yellow in the garden....yellow flowers or foliage...but it's not to everybody's liking it seems.

So, convince the doubters folks.   What's your favourite yellow plant?

Right now daffs, primroses, euphorbias and hellebores provide lovely yellow flowers.

Oh eck!  Fairy, that Guanathingymajig would hate it there 

Mrsgarden, not like yellow?  Check out osteospermum voltage yellow, dahlia yellow Honka, yellow lupins, hey!  There's a new thread there.

Caths Garden Plants....excellent...can be added to my earlier comments about the good guys.  

Recently purchased from another supplier.  Will add here if goods arrive satisfactorily. Signs so far are good.

KEF, Guanajuato needs very warm...hot .....dry  spot.  You can discreetly stake stems (they can be little brittle) with short canes.  Not for very windy spot.  Different completely to Caradonna which is hardy, tough and tolerant of wind etc.  the former is demanding;  the latter is forgiving

Yes, definitely.  It's what I do.  Sturdier plants and only slightly later flowering.

Lavender

I would wait Just a little while longer.  Conditions will be improving week by week now...soil warming....so better chances of rooting thyme.

Not convinced by dividing lavendars.  They do far better from new shoots taken in mid to late spring.  Growing from old wood is not what lavendars do.  Better more vigorous plants by summer's end from cuttings.

Hey ho!  Good stuff 

Dahlia Tubers

MrsGarden,  agree with Bilje but don't leave them in those poly bags. They will get leggy, drawn and exhausted...prob rot too.  Even if you can get them on windowsill in 9cm pots in good light they will be fine.  

I have a birthday this year so what are ŷou going to get me?
