This morning in the green house...

The little house has served me well .  

I've got things that I sowed at the end of last August ready to plant out . Things that I sowed in February needing to be potted on. And a new sowing of more seeds ....

The ones that need to be potted on : German Catchfly , Helenium hoopesii,Erynium 'miss marble', Scabiosa altopurpurea,Centaurea scabies,Cleome 'violet queen,Dipsacus 'fullers teasel, Emilia javanica, Zaluzianskya 'might night candy'. and a few more I'm sure ...

In and out of the April garden...

It was one of those sun and showers April days . Rushing out door to catch the sun , then packing up every thing before getting drenched in the rain. 


This is the shade garden's time ,with mostly spring blooms .  I 've been planting some of the annuals I've started from seed to build up the summer blooms . 





I haven't made many changes to the planting this year , but I did stick this in the other day  Arisaema sikokianum 'Silver leaf'  .

Garden Blogger's bloom Day for March

I must always start my March GBBD with the  Santa  Rosa plum . It takes up the width of the back garden , which I'm grateful for come summer !

I think this is the only plant ( outdoor) I've bought so far this year...unheard of , I know !   And I've lost the tag .  Primula  something or other, from Joy Creek Nursery .

Primula vulgaris

Another Primula Vulgaris , another lost tag .

Wind flowers are throwing themselves about the garden .

I took photos of the next four single Narrcissi that I found in different places around the garden. Hoping that they would all be different . But  no ...they  look all the same . Someone has been moving bulbs ...

Just to annoy me...

I'll have to dig them all up to make one clump .

I think it looks pathetic ...odd single bulbs everywhere.

At least this one is different.

This must be a mini bought for indoors , then planted out .

Same with this Hyacinth.

Muscari ...just everywhere .


Cerinthe Major ...everwhere  .

Japanese flowering Quince
.
The Brunnera starting to bloom

Kerria Japanica has been blooming all winter.

I'm not a great fan of Pieris , But I love wavy leaves ! So here is Pieris Japaonica 'Crispa ' 

I seem to be getting more and more careless with plant tags ! Euphorbia NOID planted last year.

And lastly ... is that a bloom on my Cosmos seedling ?
