Are the names correct of the plants I posted earlier (on top of page 2)

Please feel free to give comment on the plants.

Just out in the garden I see my Dicentra cuccularia is flowering 2 weeks earlier than last year and my creeping Phlox are ready to open weeks early too

Good News! Good News! When I checked the BBC website last night, it did not seem that a replay of the Beechgrove Garden featuring Ian Christie was available, however, just gone for a second check and I discover that there IS a replay feature. Go to the BBC Scotland homepage :
http://www.bbc.co.uk/scotland/
At the moment, almost center page (with a photo of Barry Manilow, for some reason!) there is this notice: Recently from BBC Scotland
 Browse, watch and listen to the most recent content featured on BBC Scotland. Pop Arranging   RaW Highland Cafe    Action Scotland    Beechgrove     River City
with listen/watch again buttons for some. Just click on the Beechgrove button, or if this feature box has changed, look elswhere further down the same page to find another WATCH button for the Beechgrove Garden.
This will open a Real Player Box, and there are various segments available, you don't have to sit through the whole programme if you don't want to! Ian's piece with Carole at Brechin Castle is second from the end of the wee list, entitled (surprise surprise) SNOWDROPS!
See Ian the Christie kind in Action!

Wonderful pix everyone. Spent the day catching up with everything in the garden on a really lovely day. Sun felt it had some warmth in it at last, despite a cooling breeze at times. Very uplifting with lots to view. Just a couple of pics to share.

Dear Maggi
Thanks for this great link. It is great to be able to watch some gardening programes, especially as here in Romania there are none.
Thanks again.

Can anyone ID this Epimedium? I received it as alpinum, but I doubt it.

Returned to the garden after a long winter at the beginning of this week, and found some nice plants in flower. Corydalis malkensis had escaped the rock garden and grew vigorously in the clay a few meters away from the original plant, which looked inferior to the escapee.

Still in the rock garden looking good though is Draba lasiocarpa, which is easy and seeds around a little.

Symplocarpus foetidus which I brought back to Sweden on the plane from New York back in 1995 ( well packed )smells quite unpleasantly if you stick your nose in the spadix, but it's a nice foliage plant later in the season and the flowers are interesting and beautiful in their own special way.

Paul,

Great to see the Symplocarpus doing so well with you. I was taken by this plant when I read an article about it several years ago. One of its amazing features is that the tip of the plant actually increases in temperature in spring, a feature which allows it to make its way through frozen ground.

I hope you will post some photographs later on in the season when it has grown further.

some of you will remember that last year I tried to remove my Pulsatilla pratensis bohemica from my crevice bed. In the process I broke off all the tap roots - still in the crevice - and planted the remainder on the rockery. well looky here -

Mark,

And did they reshoot in your crevice bed?  Given that root cuttings are the way of propagating Pulsatillas you might have got a bunch of them from accidentally breaking off the roots.  Looks good!
Cheers.
