I also got some turkish species tulips (as it is mentioned they are much more prolific and last longer)
And, I also got some pink large hyacinths to balance out the few I had in the garden...
I also got some crosmia lucifer, as I love my yellow crocosmia and I have the tall red ones have been on my list for awhile!
Ok, so I went a little overboard...and I got some seeds and didnt know what they were...now I found out they are Queen's Anne's Lace! (See below more information on the appropriate company----Seedaholic!!
Sorry Guys..using an ipad originally so kept it simple...beyond the fab pics on the link (thanks to my hubby Lars, here is a panorama pic). Our 360 pics did not turn out as well...but it was a great trip!!!!
Happy Easter weekend! The weather won't get us down! Yes my seeds are floppy and sad indoors...may have to start over....but am I letting it get to me...no! Instead we've been using Lars camera for some 360 shots near our area...albeit winter pics! We look forward to taking them when spring arrives too! Enjoy one of the shots at wisely.....more to follow! Take care and enjoy the short week and pray for sun next weekend (and warmth!) http://www.360cities.net/image/pagoda-rhs-wisley-garden
As I am no saint, I must be a seeder. In fact, one of my seed packages comes from seedaholic! Ok, I had my next bolt of energy and I planted the following in the new Super Seven heated bed (see previous article)
I never have luck with Dill! I cant give up...because I love dill potatoes, Swedish style! You noticed there are 8? I accidentally combined the basil!! So I will have green and purple coming up....good thing the tubs are large!
Now, the more painful part...starting to pot on....determining what needs to go in little pots and what goes outside! This weekend I will get my raised beds ready, and cover them and put out some of the more hardy seedlings (kale, etc) underneath them...if they die, I shall learn!!! Some I will put in the mini-green houses...this is where I have to keep my labeling and relabelling in check before it becomes a big mess! I did get some tidy potting on containers half price so we shall see if it keeps me organized!!!
Ok, time to put the plants to bed and sleep! Sweet dreams to the wicked....sowing the seeds of success! LOL!
I am a Texas gal living in Surrey, UK-- going further n further into gardening addiction....hopefully I cant overdose!!!
This is also my fifth year in the UK and my second year in the new house...wish me luck with the garden!
