Primula vialii, pots and the wife is away.


Walking around the garden tonight I noticed that one of my Primula vialii is growing again from last year. I’m over the moon, even though I did convince my wife that I needed to buy 5 over the Easter weekend as they hadn’t come back.

The pic is of the one growing again. It was taken last year.

Also I have got several good looking pots to fill. (If there is such a thing as a good looking pot, but you know what I mean).

And my wife is away with work, wont be home until Sat night so I am off to a car boot on Saturday to see what bargins I can get. That way if they are bought and potted up before she gets home it will be a nice surprise.

I will still have to do the hovering and dusting though as well.

I use the phrase: 'no its not new, i have just moved it from somewhere else in the garden.

nearly always works.

Over the easter hols I went to the GC lots and came back with new plants, then it was straight into the garden to plant them before hubby came home from work. When he notices them I just say "it must have self seeded" lol
