The Garden Community for Garden Lovers



Parcel arrived again today and my back is still too painful to do anything :o( it was a Mrs.Chomondley Clematis beautifully packed in a large box, managed to put it outside in the corner where the mini greenhouse is, that should protect it from wind etc., its got company with the Clematis Andromeda and Clematis Pink Flamingo, i like Clematis did you guess? There was supposed to be a free packet of Iris bulbs but unless they are coming in a different package they weren’t there :0( I have emailed the company just to ask if thats the case.
Hobbled down the garden today didn’t enjoy it much but i must keep moving, noticed the Foam flower in the woodland bit is in bud, the photo below was taken last year

The Geraniums are up and looking very good, all the Clematis are up Nelly Moser has buds coming on it, will post photos when in flower.
I hobbled painfully back to the settee for more painkillers and to browse on GOY. Hopefully be even more easier tomorrow.

Great to know the clematis was so well-packaged.
Which company packed it so carefully ?
You must be sooooo frustrated with your aches and pains...
I hope you feel well soon. A warm day forecast for tomorrow so maybe that will make you feel better.. :o)
