Here’s my end of month view, you would be forgiven for thinking that very little has changed… I’ve spent the past month on tender hooks waiting for the garden to burst into life and yet here I am still waiting!
Iris, Bluebell, Crocus, Allium and Daffodil. Perhaps it’s time I cleaned up debris from the garden now…
Aquilegia seedlings are growing, I assure you!
Tulips and I believe an Iris, although I don’t remember planting anything else in this pot… Bit unsure what else it could be!
The snow doesn’t appear to have damaged the Skimmia
Pretty pot bought very cheap in Autumn… Notice the dead Heather, seriously it always dies on me, no idea what I do wrong!
Bulbs in the shady front garden, significantly behind those in the back and side. These are in our darkest border, thrilled to see so many coming up.
Snowdrops and I believe Daffodils, although I do not remember planting any just here…
A large group of Crocus
Primula does not look happy after the snow, but new buds are coming through to replace the damaged flowers.
Crocus in the deepest darkest area.
Sweet box is still providing us with lush honey perfume.
Snowdrops in the border at the side of the house, I look forward to them naturalising and providing more of a show.
A pot with Tulip, Crocus and Allium, still teasing me. I’m getting tired of all this teasing!
I’m really very happy with how many of the Snowdrops have come through, with planting not ‘in the green’ apparently they’re not all that successful, but out of 100 bulbs I planted I have to say a lot have come up! I’d estimate at least 70% so far and considering the bag was around £4 that’s pretty good imo.
Although I’m not too impressed with the success of the Crocus from the same company… Saying that, all the other bulbs I’ve ever bought from them have been excellent. So once the Crocus come up, we’ll see.
