Spring has sprung!


Spring has sprung!

I have had this primula outside for months so it has endured frost and been buried in snow.........doesn't seem to mind that much ~ it looks like spring to me!

very nice Sticki.

thank you cinderella and Slad, Im amazed it didnt keel over and die in the snow!

14 Apr, 2013

 

They can be tough Sticki!! It is looking really healthy. Don't forget, with the snow comes all sorts of minerals and nutrients - it's not all bad ;)

Really beautiful Sticki. I love the pale yellow.

14 Apr, 2013

 

Its in wonderful condition Sticki...:>)

Yours look so clean, ours are very mud splattered.

14 Apr, 2013

 

Thanks Scottish, I hadn't thought about the minerals!

Thanks Linda, motinot and DD - it's in a pot on the steps so I think that's why it has avoided the mud splashes, plenty others of my plants have those.......as well as holes nibbled out of them!

I wonder if this is the same primula I have received from Brian. Mine are showing just upper tips of leaves so you are at least week ahead of me!!!
Nice lemon yellow!

Hooray for Spring! Lovely colour.

thanks gem!.......spring is good!

this is Primula Elatior kat ~ i bought it several months ago and it has flowered ever since. [even when it was covered with four inches of snow]

15 Apr, 2013

 

those are beautiful!
for all the snow you've had yours are so far ahead of mine, I saw a bud on one today but the leaves still look almost the same as when I posted the picture last :D

15 Apr, 2013

 

I cant remember when i bought this floralhead ~ but it was already flowering, i wasnt at all sure it would be ok after all the snow but its fine!!

hope you get some warm weather soon

15 Apr, 2013

 

it's beautiful today!

15 Apr, 2013

 

& thanks, hope it stays this way!

15 Apr, 2013

 

Your primula looks in excellent health.

oh good floral, i hope so too

thanks linda, its ok so far! looks as if it might be split at the end of the summer?

It's a bit cooler again today but really can't complain...it didn't snow Friday like it was supposed to :D
These are easy to separate Sticki, I've done it many times, just moved them the other day! I don't think they even know :)

17 Apr, 2013

 

cooler here today as well but since i was working it doesnt make so much difference! very windy as well

did you separate with a fork flora or just pull them apart?

17 Apr, 2013

 

just pulled them apart, they separate easily :)

17 Apr, 2013

 

any time of year? im reluctant to pull these apart too quickly because they look so nice just now ~ mind you the wind sounds as if its blowing 100 miles an hour so if they are still surviving out there it will be a miracle!

17 Apr, 2013

 

I transplanted mine the other day :) Wow at the wind!
We had a weird weather day as well, 24C today, still it's 16 right now (9pm) but at around 3:30 this afternoon it poured buckets.

19 Apr, 2013

 

I dont suppose it was 100, it just felt and sounded like it!!

still cool today but the sun is out, the fence at the front was wrecked ~ it was already in a bad way!

19 Apr, 2013

 

was beautiful...
back to winter coats today LOL
was the front fence wrecked from the wind? ours in the back needs replacing but I love the green on it now & that comes with age...will look funny to replace warped or broken boards!

19 Apr, 2013

 

Oh no! Winter coats never seem far away......I have been wearing mine! But yesterday I actually went out in the garden with no coat and no jacket, even sat in the sun!

Yes the wind finally broke the fence, may put a trellis up instead and grow some climbers up it?

20 Apr, 2013

 

It snowed here last night but nothing on the ground, car had ice cover on it.
I guess that's the only good thing about the fence falling, you get to do something new. A trellis sounds nice!

I'm not in Worcestershire today, I'm the other side of the country, it's sunny and a cloudless blue sky!

20 Apr, 2013

 

Nice! today seems milder than it's been all week, lots of rain all week, suns out today :)

25 Apr, 2013

 

I have this one to Sticky I also spit it ti take a piece up to the walled garden project.
