I eagerly watch the tulips emerging. I've only a few tulips in pots as my clay soil isn't the best conditions for them. Above photo taken 3 March 2010.
Below: Same tulips as above (last month); photo taken 5 Feb 2010.
Above: shop bought tulips (I got a little impatient waiting for mine to grow). Tulips are so lovely.
New Gardening Channel Update (UK/Ireland) - The new Horticultural Channel on Sky Channel 166 / 402 Freesat, aired on 6th March 2011. 'Grow Your Own' magazine March 2011 had printed, "The Horticultural Channel will air round-the-clock gardening tips from March 6...". Hmmm, 'round the clock' (to me means 24 hours?). So I was a little disappointed about the 1/2 hour programme every 2 weeks. Oh well, better than no programme. It was a good half hour watch; did anyone else see it?
