Primula growing since planting out.

Starting to rise in the sunshine
On Easter Sunday I planted out Drumstick primula that were very stunted by the cold. There was no stick at all but slowly but surely the white head is rising from it's new location in the terrace bed, not sure if the others will develop flowers or not. Lots of buds appearing including allium , hyacinths and tulips and the dicentra is going to put on a real show as mass of buds are nearly open.
This afternoon I went to a nursery at Doohamlet, we bought a lot of trees from whips upwards there 2 years ago and need more trees for either side of the driveway which has to be finished before the June wedding. On Tuesday have to collect horse chestnuts, mountain ash, small birch and will see if Johnny agrees to a couple of large beech trees which are at a very reasonable cost. I also picked up some dogwood to plant near the pond which I brought home in the can but the others need to go into the horse trailer I think. Monday I'll try to buy cover for the polytunnel and with any luck maybe I'll get an hour or two in the garden tomorrow late afternoon once I'm finished work.
