We have our Samsung TV connected to the router by an hdmi cable as the walls are too thick for wireless. We use it mainly for watching i-player but we can also look at or listen to things stored on the computer using a program called Serviio. Unfortunately, there has been a message recently saying that Samsung will no longer support YouTube so we wont be able to watch on TV after the end of this month.

Rather surprised by this and so Googled it. Seems that Samsung have a problem just now with streaming YouTube, iPlayer etc. but are trying to resolve it. Tried to access Ian's videos on YouTube on my Samsung tv and it could not connect although it was fine a couple of days ago. Would be very surprised if Samsung removed YouTube access on purpose.

Isn't technology wonderful. Now you see it, now you don't.

I have been using a borrowed JVC camcorder so far but my new Canon Legria HF R506 camcorder arrived yesterday so here is my first try with it.

Well done Ian. Great to see the self seeded Cyclamen coum in your sand bed. Managed to connect tv to YouTube and so able to watch your new video on a large screen.

One small suggestion. It would be useful to have a common set of words (e.g. 'Ian Young bulb log') in the title of the videos so that it would be straightforward to search and find them all on YouTube. Searching for 'Ian Young bulb' brought up the first two videos, but not the new one on my tv. Searching for 'Ian Young sand' or 'Ian Young bulbs' brought up the new one, but not the first two.

Hope that is useful.

Thanks Bob that is a useful suggestion I will start doing that very thing.

Guess the length of the season all depends on our weather Mark, the most compact season I have ever seen is in Tromso Botanic Garden.

Very similar to Ian's raised sand bed is this raised bed that I have. It used to have alpines but after many years the only one that survived was a lovely Androsace and a lots of Colchicum minutum.

Last autumn I decided it was time for a change so out came the rocks and Androsace and in went a load of different bulbs - various Iris reticulata, various Galanthus, Scilla, various miniature Narcissus, Corydalis, Geranium and two small Frit imperialis

Its worked very well in its first year but time will tell what happens next year.

That's a very good supplement to the bulb log. The video gives a better overview of your garden and it is exciting to hear you explaining about the plants. It gives me the feeling of being there myself.
But Ian, take care: One or two time is a trial - 3 times makes it a habit! Now we expect you to carry on  ;)

Not having an alpine house, your frit house tour is inspirational but not something I can copy at the moment.  The walk round the bulb bed, though, has given me many ideas that I can imitate (not sure about the Meconopsis though!)  You are so right about it looking different every day at this time of year.  Thank you so much for yet more inspiration.  I'll look forward to the next videos.
