  1. A lovely photo of these very pretty flowers. And yet another example after yesterday’s post of how you manage to grow all sorts of interesting plants in your challenging location. I’m really envious of your early flowering Kniphofias, Not to mention the strawberries!

    • Thanks Julian. If we can protect things from the wind, our situation is perfect for growing anything that likes a cool climate. So greenhouse and/or polytuynnel is essential.
      We’ve learnt how to get a good crop of early strawberries, but this year the crop is very poor. Our fault the plants are too old and showing signs of virus! So new plants next year and a reminder that too be too stingy and replace the stock after 4 years.

  2. So pretty, and a lovely photo. I have never had much success with this.

    • I think I’ve succeeded more by luck than horticultural skill. They like the impossible moist, rich but well drained soil in partial shade. So mine live in pots, get neglected and kept dry in the winter until there are signs of life! Howver, they need splitting so I’m going to risk disaster and try some outside.

  3. They are exposing everything they’ve got – no shame!
