Bulb Log 23

Some wonderful corydalis photos, Ian, especially the Craigton Purple.  I always seem to fail miserably with corydalis but your log has inspired me to try again and I will attempt to grow from seed next time as you suggest.  Is that a dreaded lily beetle I see in the corydalis pseudobarbisepala photo? :(

Beechgrove Garden TV programme TONIGHT 11th June

BBC2 Scotland Thursday  11th - TONIGHT -    7.30 pm
or on Sky channel 971  for the rest of the UK to watch BBC2 Scotland  if they have Sky TV
and repeated   BBC2 Sunday 14th June  9.10 am

 Looking forward to seeing Carole Baxter and Ian Young tackle Alpine troughs in programme 11 - these two reunited from the Beechgrove Potting Shed Radio Scotland Programme

On the programme on the 11th June...
"Carole has Alpine expert, Ian Young with her in Beechgrove’s Alpine garden. How’s this for a weekend project for any size of garden space? Ian is also a master of recycling and he shows Carole how to take some pretty uninspiring materials; old polystyrene fish boxes, chips of old breeze block and some discarded pieces of cement and in an alpine ‘ta dah’ moment Ian transforms these into a convincingly old looking stone trough with a rocky mini mountain alpine landscape full of tough alpine beauties."

Beechgrove Garden featuring alpine troughs with SRGC's Ian Young with Carole Baxter
BBC2 Scotland Thursday  11th   7.30 pm
or on Sky channel 971  for the rest of the UK to watch BBC2 Scotland  if they have Sky TV.
