Thanks all the same for the kind offer Puss but no thanks, I am not too keen on lillies we have never been very lucky with them here. You enjoy them though. Maybe they won't go to 8 feet if theya re not in very big pots.

In a rush today I bought 4 boxes of plug plants from Aldi thinking or not thinking that it would be enough plants for OH 3 family graves and my families cremation plot that's in a church yard, I should have slowed down as I haven't got anywhere near enough.

Love hyacinths, tulips are early Joy aren't they? Rose, I love freesias but never have any luck with them so I'll be interested to see if you can get them to grow, love the scent of them.

I agree with everything AnninGlos has said about freesias I too have never had any luck with them.
I've potted on all my plug plants and covered them with fleece as we've have been forecast night temperature of 2/3 degrees, all I can do know is keep my fingers crossed.
Our snowdrops and crocus are just coming to an end, wish they lasted longer.

I have just potted on 10 fuchsias which ae now in the conservatory and five hanging baskets with Surfina Petunias. Well a couple have Tumbelina Petunias and one of them is Julia!! :-D

Ha,ha, Ann, I get everywhere, don't I. There is also a Clematis with the word in it's title, but can't remember it's full name.
I have a feeling, and it is just a feeling, that Joy meant she grows Fuchsias in her hanging baskets. I can't imagine Freesias in them, or they would look too tall.
I have bought my Geraniums down from the bedrooms to the greenhouse, and will start watering them, to bring them alive. I'm clearing the greenhouse work benches, so that I can put all my seed trays out. This is the start of things for the next few months. Hurrah.

I like flowers/plants that include names of people I know and I buy any fuchsia with Sarah in it's name, sort of in memory of my youngest sister Sarah who died when she was only 31.
