    Large bee-flies are huge fans of these when planted in part shade, too! :blue thumb: (the bee-flies don't like full shade)

            The daffodils are really starting to get going (please ignore the muddy decking and dirty pots :redface:)

              Not a great deal in flower but a few are standing out.

              Sarcoccoca hookeriana.IMG_2618.JPG

              The Acacia was hit badly earlier in the month during gale force winds and a few -5cs and lost nearly all the flower buds and burnt a lot of foliage.

                @strongylodon My acacia pravissima has lost all its flower buds before even coming out, I've never known that to happen before.
                I'm putting it down to the freezing gale force winds we had here as even Ceonothus "concha" appears to have been quite badly damaged as well.

                    Sarcoccoca looking and smelling amazing:

                    This tub is full of last year's bulbs - no idea what odds and ends made it in there but looks promising so far:

                    And there's just something very satisfying about a freshly pruned and weeded rose:

                              Popped out to see what Ben the Gardener had done yesterday and noticed yet more Freesias out (also self seeding in the rockeries, plus my Cerinthe major 'Purpurascens' has all germinated so have planted some more.
