I am gradually putting my garden to bed as its early autumn here. I hope we are going to see some photos of your garden MPT?

Hello Magpie, also getting tidied up for the cold dark months, its back to an autumn feel today after having a very unseasonal heatwave last week, still lots in flower though.
It will be good to see your garden coming into life as ours fade though.

Hi Magpie....we are all getting ready for winter here in the UK. We depend on GOY members in hotter climates to cheer us up with photographs of their beautiful gardens. Thanks.

I love the spring. It's my favourite time of year. I've been planting bulbs. They are mineature daffodils mainly, but I've got a few dwarf tulips and Iris reticulata. I've put some in pots, and I've got some to put in the ground - must try and do it soon. I would like to grow some more Aconites but I can't find them anywhere, so I'm going to send for them on line.
Last year I sent for some double snlwdrops. I'm hoping they will give a nice display when our spring arives.
It's nice that you've got the spring now. We've got autumn here on this side of the world and it's getting darker. It's a colourful time of year - it's nice to wind down and have a rest from it all as the winter approaches.
Enjoy your spring and summer :o))

I seem to rember you need to buy 'in the green' like snowdrops Hywel so I looked them up.
Thompson and Morgan say -
'Winter Aconite Eranthis hyemalis Hardy Bulb
This woodland member of the buttercup family will swiftly multiply to form a glowing carpet of golden yellow flowers each spring. The cup shaped blooms of the winter aconite attract pollinating insects to your spring garden, and associate beautifully with snowdrops and bluebells for a spectacular woodland display. Easy to establish and virtually maintenance free, Eranthis hyemalis are ideal for planting in the dappled shade of deciduous trees, or naturalised in informal areas of grass. Height: 8cm (3”). Spread: 5cm (2”).Winter aconite bulbs are ideal for autumn planting. For spring planting choose winter aconites bulbs in the green. Only cultivated stock used.
