    Thanks @NigelJ @pete and @CarolineL , very grateful for advice and very kind offer @CarolineL :smile:
    I grew them from seeds many years ago but have had no success since and every time I try bulbs they don't even sprout.
    I think I'll try them again this year.

                The Oxalis has perked up. It was put in the bathroom for 2 months over christmas and New Year but came back down stairs a few weeks ago. Started putting up new shoots and some flowers and looks a good healthy colour ,

                  @Jenny namaste your photo gives me expectations for my oxalis to aspire to! The corns you sent me a couple of years ago look amazing through the warmer months in a pot on the patio table, but in the winter I move them into an unheated conservatory and let them die back. I need to try asking more of it!

                    No harm done in bringing it back to warmth and light. Maybe soon time to tip it out and start again with fresh corms and discard the old material.?
                    I gave mine a very weak Miracle Grow feed so perhaps it's saying thank you
                    ♡♡♡

                        That is beautiful Jenny. Look at those buds! I have never seen one climbing. I would love one but too hot and dry here. Enjoy for me as well please. Vxx

                          A bit boring but snowdrops are popping up everywhere. A lot of them weren't planted by us so I can only put it down mystery wildlife gardening.

                          We didn't plant these in the cyclamen bed

                          Nor these in the ground where the cesspool soakaway drains run (dug over 20 years ago

                          But they're quite a dense lot.

                            Pulmonaria are a very rewarding plant. Early flowering bicoloured plants that flower through April and take no looking after. The bees love them. :)
