There they are:)Never had before,i tryed sow them,but did something wrong(i think was too warm ),and didn't get any plant.So bought plants.Same evening i repoted them,and puted in glasshouse.Now,when i open glasshouses doors,first thing what i feel is them scent,it beautiful!
After flowering i will seperate them,because there in each pot is 2 different colours.

Yesterday went to Woodies get some clay pots,there was nice ofter,2 medium size pots for 8 ,or one for 6.So went to bay them,and come back home with :
Papaver nudicaule "Partyfun"(yellow Iceland poppy )and "Spring Red"(red Iceland poppy),them not grow tall,just 45 cm,but flowers are very big.
Next find was Primula "Marie Crousse",violet double flowers,with smal white edge.It already divided and i got form one pot 3 big and 7 smaller plants.Now i need white variety too:)
Got 2 little pots with Primula auricula,in each pot was 2 different couloured auriculas,mh ,,4 plants for price of 2:))
I also got Bergenia cardifolia "Winter glori",red flowering and some nice green-white grass-Carex "Everest"
At end i take my pots too.In way home was little g/c,i like it,usualy there is mess,but you can find some good plants if looking.I got 2 this time-one Clematis,no idea what of variety is it,but it have nice pale pink bell shaped flowers and some yellow,very scented little shrub.Lady,who sold me it, told me shrub name,but i can't remeber,will ask for you help.
Happy gardening to all!

New flower bed.
Today i started plant my new flower bed.About 2m wide and 14 m long.More or less soil is ready,and i start put on flower pots,to try make better display of plants.Of course ,i know,,after couple months they will start move from one side to another,,no,no..not by self.I will help them:))I know after some time i won't like how look this or other plant on one or other place,because they have funny habit,to grow taller or shorter like was on label,or seed pack,or some time they have different colour.Or, i have some plants where i don't know jet what is it,because i lost name,or my dog while ago try to eat them.
There is one problem,with my new flower bed.There need nice headge,because its border is beside field .Maybe -dhalias?Or nice hardy fuchsias,or...no idea...

Yesterday i was busy with my fuchsias and pelargoniums.New cuttings,what i got from Vernons nurserry,in two months was grown in nice healty plants,and they had full pots with roots.Time repot!I also repoted pelargoniums cuttings,what was owerwintered in glasshouse.For my big surprise almost all was alive,will see how will be with older plants,most of them show up signs of life,but some still sleep,or dead.Will give them little time.Fuchsias from Jacintas g/c right now grow new leaves,so this year they will flowering in my flower beds.
Busy days, all seedlings going mad,growing so fast,that i can't manage pricking out them all.All monday spent in glasshouse with them.I can't understand,why seeds of plants what you want just some,germinate almost all(like digitalis),but if you want some special plant,then there for 100 seeds germinate just 2...
Thats all for now!
Happy gardening to all!
