    I've quite a few blooming now. I've a white one in absolutely full flower. They seem to bloom on and off and I've also some that rot for no apparent reason as well. :(

    Here's a pic of it last week. It has twice as many flowers on it today.

      Lewisias still flowering today in two of the troughs. More in other troughs. I think the mild autumn has fooled them. :) :)IMG_3225.JPGIMG_3226.JPGIMG_3227.JPGIMG_3228.JPGIMG_3230.JPGIMG_3225.JPGIMG_3226.JPGIMG_3227.JPGIMG_3228.JPGIMG_3230.JPGIMG_3231.JPG

        Mini Rhododendron is "Snipe" 1½ inches tall. You could say it's flowering its socks off but it's too short to have any socks. :)

          Some pics are of troughs just planted up a week or so ago so you'll need magnifying glasses to see the plants. They're "Before" pics. :) :)

            Sorry, I can't tell you the names of each one as I'm a bit
            of a newb.

            Sheps...:)

              2017-04-13 20.15.18.jpg Say "Hello" to Sooty. I'm afraid I didn't treat Sooty too well as I stuck him into a pile of chippings instead of compost but Sooty is nothing if not a resilient chappie. :) :)
