Looks good Spritz, I have planted these but no sign of them yet! Any sign of the late planted tulips yet?

15 Mar, 2010

 

I love these too.

Yes, Skillen - they're still in the g'house for the moment, though - but they are showing green shoots!

Mine are outside, for better or worse, no green shoots! I did plant them a couple of weeks after you though.

Ohhh, i love these - but they never, ever come up out of the ground when i plant them :-(((((((((

its out early....... mine arnt even through yet....

I think that was about the tulips, Amy - I just can't imagine what these are doing open so early, I think Spritz has secretly towed her part of Somerset five hundred miles south, it's the only sane explanation!

Yes, Wagger - it was indeed the tulips. These Fritillaries are in the garden! Things are beginning to happen, now. Late, but arriving. :-)))))

Ours are still sleeping.....or gone............

Bet they're snoring, Ray/Jane...just put your ear to the ground! LOL.

Okay Spritz..will do...our neighbours think we are mad anyway ! LOL

And mine - especially lately, when I've been bringing small pots of bulbs home in triumph! LOL.

Good for you !! LOL !

I had to put something in to replace the ones that the wildlife ate for supper, didn't I!

That is stunning!:o))

Thanks - I MUST plant more of them in the autumn! :-)))))

Try collecting the seed, Spritz - they're prolific! If they're happy they should seed themselves, some of mine have in the oddest places.

Mine haven`t come up this year so I can only guess they won`t now. :o(

I do know that Berkshire was colder than here, Lab, so don't give up on them yet.

Mine have been out for about a week now, in West Sussex. Beautiful flowers.
