We might have lost one of the Dimorphotheca / Osteospermum but its fingers crossed for the other.
Alistair's bluebells are peeping through the snow and the remaining campanula are as strong as cabbages.
There are a few still in the bed and a couple still in pots, all survivors that failed to flower last summer.
Talking of pots as you can see we have a few that are reminding us that Spring is on the way at some point. Hard to believe as that is at the moment.
Some should be tough enough and others are tougher than you think
Last year the Climbing Snapdragon Asarina scandens came through the winter so we are hoping that it will again. It would be awful to lose it. The strawberry looks ok and you never know we might get more than 1 each this year !
Lets face it last years grow your own was a flop and has put me of growing tomatos or any kind of veg for life. Only the pear tree was a success and that did every thing by it self.
Our brave little geraniums sheltering on by the kitchen window have not stopped flowering since early Summer.
The only protection we can offer is the mini green house and that is fully booked with the regal pelargonium,Fuchsia Winston Churchill and assorted geranium cuttings.
As all ways I will end looking froward to next month when the dafs will be in flower
and may be the wall flower left from last spring too
