    I think you miss understand the GH bit Aym, another forum member was putting their GH up but couldn't due to bad weather. I have had my own GH up for the past 3 or 4 years.

    Got a picture from last year though, another 8 weeks or so it will look very similar, I have a grapevine growing across the roof. I grow tomatoes and cucumbers on the other side and have a potting bench there as well.

    Aym sorry to see your amaryllis broke! What lovely crocus photography. I really wish I'd bought some crocus and Snowdrops but didn't :-( I thought they're too small but after seeing them here I appreciate their beauty. Do snowdrops and crocus naturalise and multiply year after year? Can they be planted in a dry patch under a conifer?

    What are these flowers Aym? The ones you are trying find the colours for? 

    The crocuses are so pretty. How sad it disappeared Hazel. I bought some crocus and snowdrop bulbs today in a shop, they were 50p. I put them in the ground. They were already sprouting, I know this is bad, do you think they'll flower this season?

    That's very expensive for C.Thomasinianus! I got mine from Peter Nyssen and theirs are only £2.75! They are very easy, mine are growing in grass and have seeded themselves around, so I keep finding them popping up in unexpected places. You do need to plant them where they get sun though or they won't open fully. I grow a couple of different shades:.imageimageC.Thomasimageinianus C.Whitewell Purple
