You should have said you wanted Lily of the Valley...my neighbour has it and it spreads under my fence every year - I could have gathered some for you!

12 Jan, 2012

 

awwwww thanks Scottish would have been lovely - really nice scent and flowers :))))

I've got masses of lilies of the valley too. I wouldn't care, but when I first planted them, there was nothing for about three years, then they suddenly started growing. I give clumps of them away now!!

13 Jan, 2012

 

That's great Sheilar - love them - have you got them in a shady spot ? They love shadier areas and a little moist :)))

13 Jan, 2012

 

Paul, the ones in the front garden (north facing) only get a little sun about 6 pm in the summer but not for long. However, the ones in the back garden get full sun most of the day! Both lots are in different environments but still grow - that's nature for you!

Cool Stuff Sheilar - like the house plant ivy we bought 5 years ago that had withstood -17 and growing crazy :))))))) love nature's way :)))))

13 Jan, 2012

 

Paul, you can have some of them if you like - let me know.

13 Jan, 2012

 

Thanks Sheilar :))))))))))))))- everyone is trying to give me things tonight lol - I think I have packed full - see how it is in spring - send you some things too :)))))))))))))))))))))))))

13 Jan, 2012

 

I can't remember when they start growing. We'll sort something out later OK?:-)

13 Jan, 2012

 

Thanks Sheilar :)))))))))))))))- think about end of March - April - think my garden will be very packed though :DDD :)))))))))))))))))
