some very nice plants! I have some Hepaticas in flower now just just a flower here and there. Maggi does your plant have a name or is it a seedling?

Crikey, Mark, can't remember! It came from Ian the Christie kind. I'll go ask the Bulb Despot if he recalls its name. It isn't actually flowering now, I just posted  the pix to introduce the page! There are odd flowers about on the heps.

No. the despot can't remember, either, maybe the President will help, though I think he's off to speak in England, too, so he may not be about!

What an active discussion about Hepa's when they're not even in flower yet.
It's clear we all cannot wait for them to flower - next years thread will likely even outclass this year's !  What a great prospect !

Hello
My name is Joakim and I am also from Sweden (Lund). The very south part of Sweden and here it is some amazing things happening in the Botanical garden.
I saw a flowering hepatica transylvania on Sunday and there were nice buds on the nobilis that are newly planted. There will be a nice spring.

I also saw that people were looking looking for the doubles and Ii saw that that a Swedish new website have them.
 The adress is www.hepatica.se

It is not clear if they sell the plants still small for the stated price 14 for double blue or 9 for the pink or if they will wait untill next year.
I have not bought anything from them so I do not know if they are good or not.

I have enjoyed the pics and am a bit unused to the plants blooming already now, but maybe it is like that in the UK.

Kind regards
Joakim

You all got carried away with the pictures and no-one responded to my rotten old query as to whether my north facing raised bed might be any good for a spot of Hepaticaa growing (wipes tears from eyes :'()

Dont cry! I have 3 in northish facing troughs and they seem to be OK with nice fat buds for next year. nobalis 'Cremar' is much healthier, for me, out of sun. No sun from early November but sun in the mornings during mid summer

Hello and welcome to Joakim, and I hope we will hear more from you - I know many fine hepaticas have come from Sweden. And welcome back Paul! How come you are credited with 15 posts when you say it is your first? You're cheating!! ;D

Anne et al,

Thanks for the welcome back.  This new forum doesn't put the number of each post beside the post, it puts the total number of postings by the person against every posting by the person.  By the time you saw my first post I had made 15 postings in under 24 hours..... so every one of those posts now has 15 beside it..... well actually higher now as I am posting more today! :D
Cheers.
