New tulips and a new way of displaying, well for me; Tulip Flaming Flag and Playgirl from @jub_holland lifted complete with bulbs and arranged in some water. Should last much longer. Grown under cloches to bring them on, never thought they would protect them from snow in April😮👍👌#tulips #tulip #partygirl #flamingflag #jubbulbs

Psst, can’t find compost, rigid seed trays, or garden furniture ( up-cycled) and want locally grown plants... look no further than @greenshootsmanorfarm ... based in Peppard Common this charity supports adults with learning difficulties who develop confidence and independence through horticulture. So money spent here whether it’s buying their compost from @melcourt.ltd or their seed trays ( think they are 10 for £5 as oppose to £2.99 each  elsewhere) or local plants means that you support a fabulous cause. And fortunately they don’t sell scented candles or other paraphernalia that litter garden centres these days👍👌 #greenshoots #greenshootscharity #compost #wherecanibuyplants #buylocal #shoplocal #melcourt #melcourtcompost #plantnursery #peppardcommon #seedtrays #grownnotflown #waysandmeans

Camellia Jury’s Yellow; lovely soft creamy yellow Camellia loving growing in my garden where the ph is only just below neutral for they usually prefer acid soils. Excellent choice for evergreen shade tolerant shrub #camellia #camelliaflower #camelliaflowers #yellow #yellowflowers #shadetolerant #shadetolerantplants

Every Spring shoot tells a story...

top left inspired by tales by @pjnmanatleisure of how easy parsnips are to store these are my first grown in root trainers to encourage long roots, 
 
top right, first season I have lifted and stored Dahlias ( they will be wrapped in several layers of fleece tonight with this snow forecast) 

Bottom left; I still feel guilty killing an established clump of fabulous Delphiniums that I transplanted 30 years ago in our last house that had been previously owned by a lovely ‘old school gardener’ so to make amends thrilled at these Pacific Hybrid Seedlings. Please don’t tell the slugs...😯😀🤞

Bottom right; usually buy melon plants as they are difficult to germinate and you get 4 seeds per packet but these from @thompsonmorgan1855 are showing their heads but you will need a greenhouse for them to develop😀 

So every seedling has a story, but bring your tender babies inside this afternoon with this horrendous weather forecast for Easter Monday🥶 #seedlings #growyourown #parsnips #melon #melons #delphinium #delphiniums #dahliaflowers #dahlia #overwinteringdahlias #growyourownfood #growyourowncutflowers #greenhousegardening #greenhousegrowing

tractor for greenshoots

This charity who provide rehabilitation and training for people with mental health issues and learning disabilities, very sadly had their ride on tractor stolen during the last lockdown. We are fundraising to buy them a new one. If you are able to help we'd be hugely grateful!
