This is being written on Sunday as I’m sure I won’t feel like doing anything tomorrow! Here’s the link to Cathy at Rambling in the garden.
As you might expect there are more of the Exotic Emperor tulips to pick. For some reason this potful are not all ready at one time which is okay for the first batch but I hope my other pots will produce at least a dozen blooms at once.
I love the green and white of T. Exotic Emperor, it might be my favourite tulip – at least until another favourite blooms.
I am more and more surprised by the Canna. It was in a large pot with other plants during the summer and although there were a couple of blooms I was rather underwhelmed. I knew it was unlikely to survive the winter outside so I dug it out of the pot and re-potted it into a pot more easily fitted into the greenhouse; it has produced at least 4 flowering stems since then. It could be that it was a very small plant when it was planted outside and it needed all summer to grow.
It has been another cold week with a little snow here in the garden on Tuesday, but much more in town just a few kilometres away. Then heavy rain, followed by gale force winds from the north and icy temperatures. I hope the weather is more suitable for gardening where you are.
