At last – a floret opens!

Hi everyone – much news today.

First up – we have our very first floret open on a plant of ‘Gossamer’ – this was the bud shown in the post of April 14th!

We’ve also a few flowers on the Nicotiana mutabilis – these are going to be especially valuable with all those lovely leaves hiding the bases of the delphiniums.

Now for the update you’ve been waiting for!

Buds – we have 24 but we also have

28 spikes at various stages of development.  So fingers crossed we will be able to take a reasonable display up to Chelsea.

I also arrived home to a small parcel – the aprons for the workers on the stand have arrived

Am really pleased with them – especially at the bargain price of under £11 for 2.

All the best, Mark.
