Thanks, Libet...Dd - this came from the Plant Fair. We'll have to wait until next year to see what happens then! ;-)

now thats just fantastic

I reckon it would be worth tracking down some bulbs in the autumn. :-))

28 Mar, 2011

 

Unusual and very pretty.

28 Mar, 2011

 

Yes, I thought so too. :-)

Ooh...I love it!!!

We grew them last year, stored them and planted them last autumn no problems as such, they do like a sunny spot.

28 Mar, 2011

 

Why did you lift them, Dd? Yes, they are in the sun (when it's out!)

put on my favs for the autumn

29 Mar, 2011

 

What a good idea. Yorks. :-)

Spritz...my Mertensias are up above the ground. Now, I seem to recall this is the second time yours has disappeared, so I wonder if it is just too warm for it in Somerset in the summer, or perhaps the wrong type of soil?

Thanks, M.

Karen - this is their first year, as you sent them last year. The soil should be OK - it's good neutral stuff. I can't explain it. It's just sad. :-(

I love these! Had never seen them before!

2 Apr, 2011

 

Nor had I, Raquel. I've taken a real fancy to them. :-)

I really love all the little species tulips.

2 Apr, 2011

 

I found where I'd planted the other species tulips - they're on their way up, Karen! :-))))

3 Apr, 2011

 

Really lovely and so unusual, I have never seen them before either!

3 Apr, 2011

 

B, I know I only sent mine to you last year, but didn't you tell me that you'd had one before that and it had also disappeared?

3 Apr, 2011

 

A lovely species Tulip Spritz, Kew has them but I'm sure yours look better!

3 Apr, 2011

 

Thanks for that! I now know where to buy bulbs from, so I'll be getting some more in the autumn.

Karen, no, I hadn't grown Mertensia before you sent me some. I'm so sad about losing it. :-(

3 Apr, 2011

 

It is sad B. I'm sorry it's gone.

3 Apr, 2011

 

Me too. :-(
