    I'd give the grapefruit an iron feed, it looks a bit chloritic.:smile:

      I'll have a close look, T'other Half did the deed and photo to see if it is shadows or leaf. It probably does need a feed. Here was four days ago.

              Our parent Coronilla kicked the bucket this winter and we shall be planting another thatwe have in the nursery area. Ours never bloomed until the summer but it was in a very shady area :noidea:

                It looks like I may have lost most of the snowdrops during the winter, only a few emerged. Surprisingly the Iris Reticulata survived after being planted out late autumn.

                The primroses look good and seem to cope with the weather whatever it throws at them.

                Only the blue and a few white crocuses still in bloom.
