P.S if we are doing a new plant challenge this year I'll happy join in

I'll keep going BM, I'm made of iron

To be honest I kind of saw this coming, not that it makes it any better.

I'm pretty sure mine didn't seed but will hope for seedlings all the same

Good work guys

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Nice in the garden today. Seen a peacock butterfly on the drumstick prims and a wasp queen on the blackthorn, hopefully making some sloes. Loads of queen bumbles out as well, very positive

I did a small amount of weeding and planted some things out from a delivery a few week back. Planted things in an uninspired, dullwitted way (spikes next to spikes, spring next to autumn) but they've been sat around for long enough.

Potted on some outdoor seedlings, sidalcea, Veronica gentianoides and seedlings from a white polemonium, I bet they're all blue. Put my other seedlings and cuttings in the sun. 

Found my lamium orvala album, I'd planted a persicaria almost on top. Moved the lamium to under the kitchen window, that's quite a smashing spot for a nettle.

Studied a daffodil catalogue sent this week. Best time to plan for more daffs - that company doesn't miss a trick

Whoop! Do the seedlings look similar to the plant?

Thanks scroggin. It saps the joy out of it as something seems to happen every week and I wonder what I'm going to find

That glade must smell glorious AWB I love hyacinths, especially when upright.

These seem earlier than previous years, Trepolo:

Should have a constant wave of daffs now for the next month or so, haven't had to start deadheading yet despite the recent weather weirdness. Had a few windfalls though.
