sarracenia & schizanthus

sarracenia & schizanthus

The plan today was to do planting but it rained so that never happened.

Instead I potted on cucumbers, courgettes, squashes and cleome and re-potted streprocarpus and epyphillum.

I also took aeonium cuttings.

And eventually I ventured outside to sow the 20 Liatris spicata bulbs my daughter gave me for Mother's Day. They looked quite shrivelled so i do hope they come up.

The most exciting news today is that my Arisaema griffithii (like Deborah's recent photo) has poked its nose above the compost.
