She loves them! Although her personal favourite are scrambled eggs. 😁😁 Eggs are a good source of protein for cats and good for their health as long as you don't add any butter, milk, salt etc.

My crocuses 'Miss Vain' should look similar to your white ones, except they don't have the purple blush on the outside. 😍😍 The white ones are lovely, aren't they? I think they might be crocus chrysanthus 'Ard Schenk' 😊👍 They're on my wishlist too 😉

It sure is. I'm always trying different things, to improve upon results from the previous year, especially with seed sowing techniques & with new, more challenging plants to grow. 👍

@jeatacake I get you with the seeds. So many different requirements for them little blighters! 😂 about to start mine for this year and hoping for success with some of the failures of last year 😜

comment
jeatacake

Overall, consistent warm is the biggest factor with most, hence the heated propogator. It makes a huge difference. At less than £20 at Wilkos, they're well worth it 👍

@jeatacake something I’ll have to look into I think. It’s slow going in these temperatures otherwise 😒

Is this a mixed pack of crocuses? I'm thinking of getting one next year to have a good variety of crocuses to stare at and admire 😍😍😍

27w
comment
kez001uk

@ublaszko it was a big mixed bag from the garden centre. I don’t remember them being named as anything but mixed crocus. They’d be a good idea for adding a bit more random variety 😁

27w
comment
ublaszko

I reckon I'll plant them in a pot and then separate them once I see what they are. I might get some varieties that I don't have yet and it's always nice to have something new each year.

@ublaszko I love that you’re planning for next year already! 😜

27w
comment
ublaszko

I find that it's easier to plan spring bulbs when they're in flower so you can match them with what you already have in your garden, rather than rely on memory to remember in September what you garden looked like 6 months before. If that makes sense...😅

27w

@ublaszko I’d never considered that. Although I have no eye for colour matching at all so it’s just luck if s combination works 🙃
