Hiya lily

The Towans approaches gwithian beach. Can walk on Towans or bit more to go onto the beach itself.  Just  returned from a Towans walk.  Right now tis sunny and warmish.  

Hey KEF lots of flowers ....agree that more and more are showing day by day   You mentioned myosotis.....forget their common name, hee hee hee....I think there are non seeding varieties now.  I would grow them if so.  

Quick consideration today of changing one of my side borders.  It's good time of year for ideas I think

 

 

 

Am I a sillee billee?

Got plants galore in GH, in polytunel, under fleece, in conservatory and in pots outside.   

Im still buying more....got 4 plants coming on Tuesday and a few more heleniums in the spring.  

So......am I a silly billy?    I'm sure they will all be accommodated.....well, maybe not!  Besides, there is a small queue of vultures here ready to pick my stock. 

Any more sillee billees out there?

Me please woody.  Had my lunch but always got room for extras 

Weird weather indeed.  Womderful morning then it poured down from nowhere for 15 mins or so and now it's beautiful again.  We are pretty well sodden down here....luckily my soil drains well so when....if...we get a couple of dry days I can get on it.  Some roads are dangerous because of ice!  

HydrAngea macrophylla pink care

I do it this way.   Now or during next few weeks in cold areas I remove the old spent flowerheads down to the next emerging buds....usually in pairs.   Really deadheading.

I also remove one or two old branches to the ground occasionally......Red, yours won't need this.

In a pot water it often and well during the growing season.  I would actually place a saucer under the pot.   I would leave well alone for a while re feeding.  I would do this when deadheading. 

Anyone growing the new breed of hydrangeas?

Good morning folks.

Beautiful, sunny, calm, dry but cold.  Not quite ice but nearly   Should be lovely day in prospect.

Just heard it confirmed the mother of the 3year old boy in Edinburgh has been charged in connection with his death.  Can't get my head around that one 

Will sow sweet peas today......can smell those flowers already
