Six on Saturday – Replanting and Spring Bulbs

02 Mar

We’ve started the work on the Suffragette Garden that needs an overhaul. The blind Narcissi in the first photo are now out and the ground ready for planting.

2.  The ground is already for planting…..


3. …… and the Hebes are in, ‘Baby Marie’  which will grow to 40 cms and I hope, in time, they will make a little hedge. The have white flowers but the buds are tinged with purple so will be perfect for this garden.

4.  I was given these bulbs for Christmas a few years ago but nothing happened and I had forgotten all about them. This year, here they are in the little wall garden and I don’t know what they are called. Help, anyone?

Identity needed

5.   The Narcissi are brightening up a dark corner. I’m hoping Storm Freya, which is on its way won’t beat them down.

More Narcissi

6.   Now for something completely different!  It is St Piran’s Day here in Cornwall and our little town celebrates with a parade and hundreds of daffodils – in every shop window, in lapels, as decoration. It’s great fun!

      Thank you. Work has stopped for a while now as Storm Freya passes by! 🙂

    I used to love hebes. We had a purple once and it was soooo pretty when it came into flower. Fingers crossed yours develops into a hedge.

    St Piran’s Day sounds great fun!

    Your garden will look great when they are all getting bigger. The unidentified plant look really lovely!

    I love the idea of a suffragette garden – a great colour scheme!

    Whatever those bulbs are, they are very pretty. I wouldn’t mind some myself!

      HeyJude has identified them for me we think. I will photograph them again when they are more open and then we will be sure. 🙂

    Happy St Piran’s Day! I think your unidentified bulbs might be Chionodoxa – it will be easier to tell once they are open more. I have some in my woodland walled border which are just starting to poke through.

      Thank you! I thought you might be the one to help me out – again! 🙂

      St. Piran’s Day is a new one to me. I just found out he is the patron saint of tin miners. Not much call for him these days. Yes that is Chionodoxa ‘Pink Giant’.
