Seems ages since I posted a SOS for The Propagator who as always is very diligent and continues to post come what may. I on the other hand skulked about mostly indoors, as every time I did get the camera out, it poured with rain and I lost heart.
So at last here I am with my first 2020 SOS. Wishing you all a Happy Healthy gardening year and hoping that there is some good news from Australia soon it is devastating to see and hear about the homes, lives and animals lost.
Found behind the cold frame that lives in the greenhouse on a tidying up day, I think it’s just a bit old to eat now!!
Are we too early again I think so. Last year they suffered badly having come into flower early and then clobbered by a hard frost after which they did put up a reasonable show but nothing like normal. I have always found Hellebores to be an easy reliable plant but not recently. Lovely to see in mid winter though.
I have never grown Daphne’s before but now have two in the border. I can see something has been munching on it but it’s not going to detract from the flowers when they eventually open, so looking forward to seeing it in full bloom.
So many different ones and some very healthy offspring growing nearby . They never seem to thrive in pots so left them to grow a little bigger. If anyone knows the secret of best time to pot up please let me in on it as I have tried at different times using a variety of potting composts but they always drag their heels for me.
