Marvellous leaves on that dark-leaved Erythronium dens-canis Ian, I'm impressed ;)

What a treat, corydalis, hepatica & erythromium!

Another great video Ian.

There was a dark leaved erythronium at the back of the cold frame I was hoping to have a closer look at Ian, it was in a pot with other erythronium with greener leaves.

 I noticed the leaves on the e. citrinus you filmed in the cold frame exhibited an orangey cast. A group of Joana develops the same colouring in my garden.

Ian
Can you please tell us the dimensions of your concrete edging? I can only think of paving slabs here with that dimpled finish, and that seems unlikely from the video.

 they are described as paving edging and are made to old measurements  3feet x 6inches - I get them at B&Q.

This weeks Bulb Log is now on line at

http://www.srgc.org.uk/logs/logdir/2015Apr011427876967BULB_LOG_1315_erythronium.pdf

It includes another chapter from Erythroniums in Cultivation on Erythronium caucasicum.

Here is one of the Bulb Log video diary supplements showing how I feed the bulbs with potassium.

Thanks Ian. Plenty of them here but all I have seen or have in use in the garden are smooth very pale concrete, one edge square, one edge rounded, hence the confusion.
While we are on the subject your broken concrete plantings never seem to show any flat or square edges. Were these 4" or 8" blocks in another life? I assume they were low density concrete, or are Aberdeen frosts that bad? ;-)

Yes it is the low density blocks - the larger ones they are roughly 17" x 6" x 8" and I break them up and make sure that no flat edges show to reveal their previous existence.
