The first bach of tulip bulbs took longer to plant than expected as some multi-coloured osteospermum I had popped in as colour bedding have suddenly put on a new flush of blooms so I had to carefully dig around them. Another lesson there.
In the greenhouse the winter salad crop and herb seedlings are coming on quite well. Will soon have to decide whether to harvest some as "cress" or just thin out. May experiment with a bit of each.

The nerines are certainly worth growing. Sicne they are such a shocking colour I may even put in some orange ones for next year. That would be interesting!
|More crazy nerine shapes - they are so worthwhile - however LOUD!|
