Attended RHS Plant Fair, London on Friday afternoon. It was lovely to see some old friends and collect my order of lily bulbs, saved on postage. I've never seen so many potato varieties, so it was difficult to choose. I went for Lady Belfour (white), Vitolette (purple) and Anya (pink). Unfortunately, nobody was selling Casablanca, it did so well last summer and we enjoyed it in early summer salads.
Looking forward to plant all my lily bulbs tomorrow.
I remember weeding last week and seeing no flowers except Christmas Helleborus. Went to prune the rest of fruit trees and was so happy to see little beauties of Crocuses and Iris Reticulata. My hands are itching to start planting, but my butt got so cold after 4 hours in the garden, that I decided it's too early. Sorted all my seeds and trays, waiting for compost to be delivered and more lily bulbs to arrive.
