I know lots of you like posers, crosswords etc. Here’s one for you all. I wonder if we can gather a list of plants with a month of the year in their name.
Eg… Anemone x hybrida September’s Charm

That’s September taken care of! Lets see what we can come up with.

I was tempted to go to the 'plants' section on GOY, then concluded I might look good in a dunce's cap, but I'm not playing, if I have to stand in the corner & face the wall! Lol.

Hywel and Grandmage - nearly ;)
Oliveoil - well done on taking the dog a walk and sorting out those fish!
I suppose it's easy if we grow plants with these names on them. Let's see if anyone else has any suggestions.

There you go Scottish, I found a brilliant site just dedicated to roses, oh to be rich and have lots more space...I wracked my brain and checked my plants list and don't think any came to mind so had to resort to looking them up, passed the time away though...

14 Mar, 2013

 

be a good idea if some new plants had the name of the month in them ~ they would make nice birthday presents!!!

14 Mar, 2013

 

Narcissus 'March Sunshine'
Camellia 'November Pink'
Erica carnea 'December Red'

Have we got a full set yet?

14 Mar, 2013

 

May flower!?

14 Mar, 2013

 

What about a Christmas rose? Sorry if that's already been mentioned but I'm trying to cook as well!

14 Mar, 2013

 

Gosh, you've all done really well...I would have only got February Gold, and possibly Hosta June...I think it's really tricky!

14 Mar, 2013

 

I tried to browse for more and my laptop refuses to play, keeps telling me it cannot load the page, lol, I was enjoying doing that as well...

14 Mar, 2013

 

Well done everyone. I will put a full list up later when I have more time. I'm obviously very busy at work right now ;-)
There was an easier way to cheat.... RHS plant search putting in the month you are looking for!

15 Mar, 2013

 

Hi Scottish, I have been following the goings on, but 3 of us have health problems for the last 3 months or so and its not leaving me much time to do anything else.
