CanVery warm day

Greenhouse far to hot for potting in. Got the watering done earley and completed my wood projects by lunch. Tomorrow have to put more basket brackets up. Put plants in two of my new baskets on Sunday. Another 4 baskets ordered from QVC. Am running out of wall space and my good lady will not let me near the windows(LoL). Datura seeds germinating fine, and my dwarf Godicia are coming on fine. Two climbing Rose cuttings still look great plus my Ivy cuttings are really taking off. I am getting my 4 Fuchsia plants from T&M ready for the baskets and thats about it for the time being. Hope you like todays pictures. Take care Tony

Definitely a Pieris,Tony...maybe 'Forest Flame 'variety..they seem to be the most popular.Dicentra looking good..another one on my list..but it has moved nearer to the top ! :o)

Hi Terra I took the Dicentra by section 2 years ago. It keeps appearing and in full bloom looks very nice. The Parent plant is on our rear lawn border and also growing well. Hope all the lovely pets are ok. Take care Tony

Lovely pics Tony, your Dicentra is miles in front of mine, mind you ours is lack of water I s`pose.
I saw those baskets advertised in the paper, are they as easy to plant up as the advert says?...
