My passion in life is gardening and specifically growing flowers from seed

Iris flowering

Just a little blog to show my Iris bulbs flowering, they came up yesterday. I haven’t even got the snowdrops yet and I thought they usually came first

Late New Years greetings!

Happy new year! Sorry it’s late but I like to include a picture on my posts and there is nothing flowering in the garden at the moment. However, it’s not all doom and gloom, there are signs of life with bulbs and other plants.

Anyway, today I bought some pink lilies for my owl planter (he has a separate post of his own but I’ll include a picture too). Also on the pink theme – some sweet-peas – Painted lady which are apparently very old and intensely fragrant. I will be planting these in my electric propagator soon.
