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

Wordless Wednesday- purple crocus

Happy Valentine’s Day

I’m not a fan of Valentine’s Day for reasons we go into here but I do love red roses so here’s some we cut off one from our garden when pruning a rose last autumn

Wordless Wednesday- crocus

Wordless Wednesday- first hellebore to flower

Wordless Wednesday- still flowering in the greenhouse

Wordless Wednesday – alstroemeria

Wordless Wednesday- more autumn colour

Wordless Wednesday- hesperantha


These are the tulips I have planted this year in pots/troughs with wallflowers that I grew from seed and pansies not grown from seed.

I like to try different tulips each year and like them in pots because in the ground apart from the fact they are likely to rot with clay soil and a lot of rain it means I don’t end up digging up them up when I’ve forgotten where they are.


Here is a finished trough

Wordless Wednesday- gerbera
