More Scent in the Greenhouse

Coronilla glauca & Polygala myrtifolia
I had a fabulous day in the greenhouse with the sun shining. The scent of those Hyacinths is still prominent and now my Coronilla glauca is adding to the 'aroma therapy'.
I potted up all my remaining Dahlias - 9 Colour Spectacle (orange, cactus), 6 Nuit d'Eté (dark red, cactus), 6 Painted Madame (orange/cream, decorative), 6 Tsuki Yori No Shisha (white, cactus) and 3 Bishop of Llandaff. It's a relief to not have to worry about them going mouldy in their packets.
I finally threw out any greenhouse bulbs from last year that didn't make it through. The only surviving ones were 1 Eucomis bicolor and 3 Ornithogalum saundersii, which I repotted in good compost with plenty of grit.
I scrubbed all my plant labels and am glad to note that I have plenty so I shouldn't have to buy any this year.
And today I returned several plants to the greenhouse - ones I rescued during our Arctic winter. I think they should be fine now. New photos in my 'Greenhouse 2010' album.
