Been sunny and dry...little windy but that's another story!
Which varieties of heuchera Bob? I think hyacinths are my favourite spring bulb because of their fragrance.
Still planting up a new border. New last winter but now with large conifer gone it has made for an exciting project. Often I dig up clumps of hosta around now and plant large Pulmonaria or similar in their place. The hostas remain with good rootball wrapped in bin bag to replant next spring. It means I will have something to look at instead of a bare (hosta) space. For me, Pulmonarias are evergreen and flower very early. The new bed has added heleniums, dicentras alba and king of Hearts, anemone wild swan, geum totally Tangerine, Heucheras Marmalade and others, and with two new hellebores planted earlier this year, grasses, some large stocks and wallflowers already planted which will make way for my tender agastaches in spring. Astrantias, astilbes, geraniums, etc plus a smattering of bulbs keeps me focused this winter.
My niece has told me who the would be burglar is so I will pay him a visit. (I want to plant a new fruit bed so a 12 stone mixture of blood, bone and various minerals will be just the ticket). .......no, not really folks. Would like to though but will call on the police
