Look what greeted me this morning 😀
If the promise of buds wasn’t exciting enough, the nursery is now full of lovely colour 🙂
Here’s what is currently in bloom:
Peeps, I am so sorry that I haven’t updated for a while, ‘life’ has just got in the way a bit.
So, there is some EPIC catching up to do as anyone with greenfingers knows, things really get a wriggle on in the garden at this time of year.
I wanted to start with an update on what is just coming into bud in the nursery. I love this stage of a plants’ development because you’re on the cusp of receiving your rewards for all the nurturing you have been doing.
So, here’s whats currently ‘in bud’
We finally have some lovely colour here at BBHQ with several varieties bursting into flower 🙂
The last couple of days has been about getting all of the plants I have ready to go back onto eBay.
I’ve even surprised myself just how many varieties I currently have available so, here’s a list of everything that has gone on today:
Antirrhinum ‘Tom Thumb’ 40 plugs
Aster ‘Duchess Yellow’ 9 cm
Bidens ‘Golden Eye’ 9 cm
Campanula ‘Double White’ 9 cm
Campanula ‘Carpatica Blue’ 9 cm
Cleome ‘Rose Queen’ 9 cm
Dianthus ‘Deltoides’ 9 cm
Echinacea ‘Pow Wow Wild Berry’ 2 Litre
Euphorbia ‘Fireglow’ 1 Litre
Geranium ‘Derrick Cook’ 1 Litre
Hemerocallis ‘Fooled Me’ 2 Litre
Nemesia ‘Poetry’ PINK 1 Litre
Nemesia ‘Poetry’ PURPLE 1 Litre
Papaver ‘Miss Piggy’ 1 Litre
Penstemon ‘Vesuvius’ 2 Litre
Poppy ‘Golden West’ 9 cm
Potentilla ‘Miss Wilmott’ 9 cm
Potentilla ‘Monarch’s Velvet’ 9 cm
Primula ‘Denticulata Mix’ 1 Litre
Rudbeckia ‘Goldsturm’ 2 Litre
Sedum ‘spurium’ 1 Litre
Shasta Daisy ‘Alaska’ 1 Litre
Tradescantia ‘Mix’ 1 Litre
That’s a total of 23 varieties!!!
I am still waiting with baited breath and my fingers crossed that something germinates from the following seeds in the next few days. They are all well within their ‘germination window’ and as yet, nothing is occurring 😦
You’ll notice some familiar Nemesis’ in the list below – GRRR!
I made the decision yesterday to take all the plants I was selling on eBay off.
I have received some wonderful feedback for the plants I have sold so far and due to the fact that I am struggling to keep up with everything, the heat and sun of late is drying everything out and a lot of the plants are looking ‘tired’, I have decided to remove them to give them some TLC before re-listing.
I want to be known for selling quality plants and in order to do this, I have to take my time to get things right. I would be really upset if the standard of my feedback fell from that detailed above so I know I am doing the right thing.
I’m hoping to get some plants back on there (including new varieties) in the next few days so will keep you posted!!
