Morning Everyone from an already sunny West Yorkshire ☉ Fritillaries looking lovely catching the early rays, although they do remind me of those godawful Seersucker blouses I used to have to sell 😁 Have a wonderful day (apologies for the now compulsory copulating lily beetles!!) #sunshine
Morning Ladies, nice not to work, but just too cold and windy for me to stay out long (how much of a wuss do I sound 😂) Hopefully next week can at least give me a few hours outside ☉ @jadojado29 @juliesgarden @rosiebug @rachelbrooks I don't have the heart to kill something such a gorgeous colour ❤ 😂😂 (And always with a ciggie 😉)
Thank you ☀️ Another great photo. I tried to get one of mine the other day but failed miserably. Do you have a macro lens or do you take your photos just with your phone? Either way, Iove seeing them 😍
@gardengimp Went there once about 10 years ago, when I first moved up here (before i started gardening) only realised a few weeks back that is is quite literally just down the road 😲 Keep meaning to call in!! Have they got a decent range of plants in there? Went over to Tong recently, was a bit too pricey for me!!
@Jasonsparkes1 I have tried them a few times with limited success but I do love them, have you got any tips that might help, my soil is clay so bulbs struggle and I am finding more successful in pots so I might try that 😊
@katgreen I have no real tips I'm afraid, I'm heavy clay too, although these are in a raised bed, it was still filled with soil from the garden. I have tried to mix in compost around the plants and when I plant new ones, and always keep a good layer of bark mulch over all the beds, which seems to break down pretty quick. Other than that they are in shade, do see a little evening sun. I was surprised to see them come back, I think at least 50% of my bulbs rot away 😐
@Jasonsparkes1 yes it's the bulb rotting in my garden too, so pots for bulbs will probably be the way I go, although as my hubby keeps pointing out, if I stop changing the garden around I might keep more bulbs 😄
Thank you @drumadixit @sambucussam @columbiariver Certainly is, and thank you @lovemygarden65 Buds about 1.5" and fingers crossed @gjones Mine too @susieg Thanks Cazz and it depends on how many layers of foundation I can trowel on 😂😂 @cazz47 Gonna try Jane 💜 @pelly
