Naff all looking good here
Not even a Myosotis sylvatica ?
@longk I saw you had posted and came in thinking: "Ooh, fab! Our Lonk always has something special to show off. Then I read your post!
I have a fair amount of mush if anyone is interested!
Why are you holding on to it? Mine went yesterday!
Hmmmmm! A few days ago I had 2 large clumps of arum lilies in flower....prob 7 or 8 metre tall flowers on each. Today, all crumpled in a heap; no flowers. Disappointing to say the least. The collapsed foliage will be left until new growth is seen. I dont think I have lost the clumps and I think they will flower again in May time but those white flowers looked so good behind the red cornus stems
@longk same here mind you i got plenty of lovely white stuff if anyone wants sum
I am not yet sure if I have lost anything but the Sophora macrophylla has shed many leaflets as it like everything else was completely frozen. Some Grevillea flowers and buds have turned black and the Acacia dealbata has browned leaves.
Everything that has picked up since Friday morning.
That is one battle that I have won
Thought I'd done well ! My large Melianthus clump had finally attained flowering size throughout 2017 ; would have bloomed this year ; then the 'Beast' arrived last Wednesday and has converted it into a shattered wreck .The roots should be OK though . Removed the dessicated fronds from the Dicksonia today . It stood the big-chill of 09/10 admirably without cover . Hope it has survived this latest onslaught , only time will tell .
@PaulB3 Sadly mine has been badly hit too and everything above ground is dying off. I have both M. Major and M. Villosus which is supposedly a bit hardier than Major but seems affected just the same.
My Hellebores have just shrugged the bad weather off and I'm very pleased how they look right now. They are all double 'Ellen' varieties I got from Hayloft a few years ago. I have quite a few new offspring from their seed which all run true:
@JWK ... they are gorgeous, wish I could grow them here.
