What an especially great set of photos from your garden this week -the Chinese frits are stunningly marked. Thanks for sharing them with us.

Thanks Anne the garden does look good just now even if I say so myself :) :)

If only the rain would ease off now the garden is nice and moist again after the march heat wave.
The constant rain is spoiling some of the erythroniums.

I know how you feel, I need waders to get around in places. Better that than drought though, and since I've been doing splitting and replanting, it's ideal for re-establishment. I've been round flinging the trichoderma on all the things I thought might benefit as well, so it can wash in.

Since the introduction of the hosepipe ban it has rained quite heavily here every day. Even though - as Ian remarks -  the erythroniums are not too happy, it is very welcome.
Gerry passed away  at home  on 25th February 2021 - his posts are  left  in the  forum in memory of him.
His was a long life - lived well.

Anne, every packet or bag I've ever had of Trichoderma-based fungus, says quite clearly that it should be incorporated into the potting mix or ground soil, and not sprinkled on top as a top-dressing, as one might do with, say, a bulb food. It seems to need to be dug into the mixture. I suppose it need to get its (metaphorical) teeth into the humus content as soon as possible to become active.

Too late! All the potted stuff had it incorporated, but I had lots of the granular type left over, so it was better used like this than disposed of.
