Morning ☕ 'Thalia' has more #mondaymotivation than me...for a late Daffodil she's surprisingly early this year

comment
gjones

Glyn says he has lots of favourites. He's mostly into trees and shrubs but has a passion for dahlias, delphiniums, trumpet and oriental lilies, pachysandra, primula, lupins. His favourite trees are oak, Ohio buckeye, all evergreens and his favourite shrub is probably tree lilac.

3w
comment
gjones

Oh he forgot a couple. He loves all Irises and fritallaria. He's not very helpful in the vegetable garden- tends to weed things that aren't weeds. But he's great with trees and some perennials. People in our neighbourhood contact Glyn when they have problems with their trees or for suggestions on which trees to plant where.

A lot of favourites 😉, I just asked as a lot of people seem to have a liking for a certain type, I haven't come across anything in particular yet...early days @gjones

😊 @lovestogarden @pauline33 @hayleyaj @mojo A very happy mistake (I picked up a different pack to what I intended!!) @Patiorose Definitely become a favourite, I put them in pots, can I just put them in the ground when they're finished?

comment
hayleyaj

Fab mistake! Take off the spent flowers once finished so it doesn't put energy into trying to set seed, then lift the bulbs, dry out and plant out in Autumn Jason 😃👏

I would take them straight out of their pots and plant them in the ground. But I never do things by the book! 👍🙃
