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.
