Here’s a perfect example that hope springs eternal. These anemone bulbs look like dried prunes and are hard as rock, but in a few weeks I’ll be soaking them for 24 hours, then planting them indoors to be put out in the garden later (usually around the 24th of May) which btw seems like forever …
I’m not really sure it’s going to work, but I can hope. I’ll be posting my process and their progress in the coming weeks. Fingers crossed my friends (but it could take all year ;)
I already have Anemone sylvestris or snowdrop anemone which run rampant in my garden throughout May and June. They’re a hardier type native to meadows and dry deciduous woodlands of central and western Europe and they spread rapidly by root suckers.
Although they can be invasive, they’re one of my favourite flowers; delicate-looking and unassuming.
So what about you … are you dreaming of gardens and all things green?
Alas, since I don’t have as much as a window box, I can only dream of other people’s gardens and enjoy photos of them online. But my Christmas cactus is bright with blossoms (first time it’s ever re-bloomed in the spring) and there are three buds on my daughter’s potted miniature rose. That will have to do!
I am ! m waiting for some dahlia tubers to be delivered. I only hope I dont kill them off !
