    Not seeds but bulbs-I mentioned in Chatback that on Saturday I found a box of spring bulbs in the garage that I had completely forgotten about so a little belatedly (both from a posting and planting point of view ) I got these into the ground:

    75 Daffs- Actaea,Obvillaris, St Patricks day,Prof Einstein and Red Devon.
    125 Crocus- Ruby Giant, Fuscotinctus, Cream Beauty, Ard Schenk, Sieberi Firefly.
    75 Snowdrops- singles

    Still to put in are 50 iris reticulata and 25 chrysanthus Prince Clause but I'm thinking they will go into pots this year.

    Not expecting much but they stand more chance outside than in a box in the garage...

    Live well. Laugh often. Love much.

    Most days are plain old stones, but sometimes you get a diamond

    Gardening is as much about dreaming as it is about doing
