It’s been a few years since there has been as much to see all at once ,probably the main exception being white Camellia that are all badly damaged by the cold winds this week. Anyway see what you think they are all taken yesterday and today.

Quick change to the small front garden and how OH makes me plant it.


Enough of that.lol
Enjoy.

There certainly is lots to see Brian. I love Hosta 'Remember Me'. I have one here somewhere, but my Hostas aren't even peeping above the mulch yet. Your violet Daphne is a real stunner!

WOW! What a wonderful display of colours you have there, Brian! The "wow" escaped me completely involuntarily when I saw that lovely pink Camellia, E.S.Waterer!

A riot of colour, a proper spring at last, you must be very pleased to have such lovely mature plants to enjoy in your garden.....

Brian What a wonderful array of beautiful and very healthy plants you have. I love the Camellia's I have Williamsii mine is full of buds but not opened yet [must be the cold north winds! [Love the White Camellia]
The fantastic array of colours of your Acers is stunning too, but the Aquilegia Nana has really stole my heart, thanks for showing;0))

the white camellia some years is fully striped pink so don't class that one as a white also does not mark as badly as the pure whites
The Aquilegia is quite dwarf suited to a pot or raised position,will see how much seed I can collect.

Everything is lovely, Brian and I fell for the aquilegia too. I was quite seduced by your flowers and shrubs and then, oh! Those acers - simply stunning!!

Thanks Brian;0))

Your garden is way ahead of ours but its lovely to see so much colour. Stradbrook Q2 is lovely. Are those tulips all planted in the pot and if how many are in there? It is a bold colour combo.

two packets of ten that I picked up in a garden centre last autumn.

Did you place them in layers and how big is the pot? I planted up several pots of narcissus but they looked a bit sparce.

Lovely time of the year ! Spring !

Scotsgran no but the bulbs would be almost touching.
need plenty of slow release to build them up again, expect you know who will want fresh one come Autumn.

21 Apr, 2014

 

Thank you Bjs. Yes I did think I would need to do that. I thought I could give them a feed with half strength tomato food every other week until the leaves die back as i do with the ones in the garden. I'll plant them in the garden later.
