Re: Spring planting at Christmas

My planting of crocus, cyclamen, tulips, daffodils and snowdrops is already done (They are in the same pots as my annuals go in summer)

 

I have a lot of winter pansies planted in pots

and a few polyanthus

Add to that, I have a lovely winter flowering jasmine nudiflorum....which is well established and gives a lot of colour in the winter

Re: Spring planting at Christmas

Sadly my fine cultivated weeds have died off. Looking forward to my solitary daffodil blooming in a mild March Bouncy

Re: Spring planting at Christmas

Looking forward to seeing what the plants look like if you'll share some photos in the spring @TallTrees ! Smiley Happy

 

@Cleoriff I hadn't considered there are flowers blooming in the winter. thinking Are they in your garden, outside? Those yellow ones are very beautiful! 🌼

 

@jonsie Daffodils are some of my favourites! Smiley Happy

Beautiful @Cleoriff 

 

I was much later planting bulbs than usual.  

I think they'll be ok though.  

Thank you for the photos.

Re: Spring planting at Christmas

Hi @Marjo 

 

Sure will photo those Tulips ~ 

we have not had a winter yet so the bulbs may start very early

they could be popping up in February!

 

I saw my  yellow rose bush in bloom yesterday!!

 

I cut back the geraniums a few weeks ago,  some are left outside

all year. 

They have re-grown the flowers too!  I will let them get on with it.

 

At least the leaves have come off all the trees.

Hi @Marjo 

Yes I have them in the garden outside, although those photos are generic shots as my photography skills get worse by the day. rofl

Re: Spring planting at Christmas

Like Marjo I only consider flowers a spring summer thing.. so this is an eye opener for me!
