Thanks Diane for showing us around your garden,Interesting view on never casting a clout till May is out,As a child we always had to wear a vest untill the end of may,this has continued until this day,Was mother wrong after all.?Going back to the garden i thought we may get an update this month on all those seeds sown back in December.

Thnaks Diane, informative as always.

Tony, showing you how the seeds are getting on might involve a trip to the greenhouse. You wouldn't be trying to spy on the oppostion during the show season would you:-)))

Funny you should say that, Tony, it's in the pipeline. I've had some very funny germination patterns this year.

Actually, there aren't many seedlings are in the greenhouse ;-) also, the show season is quietening down, with nine consecutive Saturday shows now attended so far.

 

Anyway, Martin, what did you think of the lewisia in the garden - it's been pretty impressive this year.

Dead impressed. I've occasionally kept one alive for a couple of years on a South facing steep fronted rockery and got a few flowers but that's all. Even Carousel Hybrids sulk badly and just about survive!
