Hiya Dove.  same here.  Thought Adrian blooms foggy bottom was brilliant.  He was a great inspiration for me and am sure my love of grasses, foliage colour, perennials etc was because of him.  Went through the dwarf conifer period too.

Never enamoured about auriculas.  A friend grew them and loved them but they just looked too artificial for me.

Cant grow good roses here so don't grow them but I will check out your site in a mo.

Grew a border of iberis too.  In spring it was eye catching but it was something I grew tired of too

I want to grow again

I grow a few heathers but used to grow a lot more.  I "tired" of some of them but now I'm drawn to growing more of them again.

Dont like them in isolation ...I.e as single plants......so I have three smallish beds of them...........foxhollow with yellow foliage, Ann Sparkes with reddish foliage and Springwood  white, all carneas.  Easy, evergreen and flowering during the winter so what could be better? 

So, two questions.......what did you grow that you dont now but would like to again? Heathers? Like em or loathe em?  (oooo, I could have earned bonus points here for two threads in one )

what's still flowering in your garden?

Got a bed of winter flowerimg heathers now showing their first flowers?  Love heathers.  Used  grow a lot more....now itching to grow,more again

Woody, yes I think mollycoddling probably the reason for tulips not coming up year after year

However, they mostly carry some virus....don't they?.....so maybe this is a factor too

Hiya punkdoc.  Is it the darkness now?  Gets to me somewhat too.  I tend to improve in the new year
