I’m starting with this lovely group of Fritellaria meleagris which I have to confess I bought in a pot from Waitrose. The ones I’d planted in the shady lawn a couple of year ago seem to have dwindled to nothing, and I was feeling their loss. I can’t quite decide whether I’ll plant these out after flowering or if it’s all rather a lost cause. I do so love them.
more of the new Narcissus ‘Cragford’, which have been blooming well for a month,
I went a bit mad with the Crocus ‘Cream Beauty’ this year after they were all eaten last year, and I’ve now got plenty in various pots, having kept them safe in the greenhouse during their infancy.
My two Hamamelis, ‘Aphrodite’ and
and a couple of Pelargoniums which somehow never got brought in over the winter. Luckily I seem to have got away with it!
This is a plant I don’t think I’ve ever featured as I havent known it’s name. For the majority of the time it looks like a low growing conifer, but at this time of year it’s smothered in these tiny white/pink flowers and is absolutely stunning. I finally discovered its identity at the recent RHS show, it’s a Coleonema, I think Coleonema ‘Sunset Gold,’ and it’s an absolute belter.
With thanks as ever to Carol at May Dreams Gardens who hosts the GBBD.
