You've just reminded me - I noticed an Aconite bud the other day but forgot to see if it has opened yet - will check tomorrow! Have a lovely weekend 😃

Good morning everyone, the 🌝 is out already and today looks promising 😊 I underplanted the Kilmarnock willow with aconites. I'm definitely doing much better with my previous yellow flowers phobia 💛

I'm like that with yellow so last autumn I bought 3 bags of my daffs to challenge myself 😂

I think I’m over it now, I can see how much it brightens the garden up. In fact I’ve even ordered a yellow rose @ublaszko @pelly

Afternoon Jason, oh no! I haven't long bought these so I cheated. No signs of any of the little bulbs I planted. They are fickle little things. @hebelover

Question please? I can't tell how deep these were planted. They don't have leaves but flower buds. Do you think this is too shallow? I'm guessing the bud should be above the ground? #advice

No idea, sorry. I'm going to plant some next year though. I only have snowdrops in flower at the moment as hellebores are still tightly packed in bud.

They look fine to me 👍🏼 Eranthis flowers appear first without true leaves. The outer parts of the bud develop into greener leaf like bracts but not true leaves and then the flower develops and opens. After flowering has finished, true leaves pop up from other parts of the tuber for a few weeks before dying back before summer starts.

Thanks @richard.spicer.7906 I found it quite confusing some were very short from bulb to bud, some a bit longer. Hopefully I'll have some flowers soon 🤞
