      My plants from Crocus finally arrived yesterday, they seem to be in good condition. The Ajuga 'Catlin's Giant' have a few buds on them so I should get some flowers soon, I think. :) Hopefully they will attract some Orange-tip and Green-veined White butterflies to the garden!

          Nice! Great plant for butterflies and bees, the seeds are also enjoyed by Blue Tits and Finches apparently. :) I bought one of those a few weeks ago and look forward to growing it in a nice container. Tough little plants as long as they're well-drained I think, mine was accidentally stomped on by roof workers a couple of days ago but is still shooting up!

            Here's a laugh

            I tried to get the one Asparagus Fern seed my daughter in law had, to germinate. No luck so I ordered a few new ones. I didn't read details as I was in a hurry and the package arrived. Think I can get one out of this lot to sprout?:heehee:

                Very late reply ... too late probably. I find Cleome need varied temperature to get good germination. if I leave them at "ideal" propagator temperature they are disappointing. On windowsill where they get cooked by the sun, and chilly at night, might be better than in propagator.

                  I bought a big "double" LED growlamp - cast off from a failed high-value-crop growers attempt i expect - to add to my exist two square ones.

                  Wasn't sure it was going to be the right type from the description ... but it is ... so i wish I had bought the other one he had on eBay too. I'm moving it left-to-right to give 12 hours to each half of the table, but a second one would mean I could lift everything on the table onto the floor and swap-over a complete second set of plants, which is a few days time is the amount of plants I will actually have ...

                    Thank you for sharing the link I have just ordered a "Belle De Crecy" bare root for a large wooden planter on my new patio raised bed. Excited to start getting some new plants in to brighten the area up.

                      It felt like an early Christmas today as I received 6 parcels via the Royal Mail, Hermes and APC.

                      To be honest, I was expecting 4 large bare roots and not these lovely plants in pots .

                      This is the 18 bare root Lupins from Hayloft

                      Ten 3 litre pots....and there's another ten 5 litre pots in the post.

                      I've potted on the 18 bare root Lupins and the rest will be potted on tomorrow:cat-kittyandsmiley::coffee:

                                Has anyone here used Naturescape before? Just ordered some butterfly-friendly plants from them.
