Did Someone Say Spring ?

plants keeping out of weather in greenhouse

I’ve just taken delivery of my second lot of plants from Plant Me Now.  There’s Salvia nemerosa ‘Caradonna’, a gorgeous deep blue herbaceous salvia that I’ve lusted after ever since I saw them in an Ulf Nordfjell Chelsea garden a few years ago. The other plants are Digitalis ‘Dalmation Rose’ which are also most welcome as you can never have too many foxgloves in the garden as far as I’m concerned.  They are all sturdy young plants and in a normal spring I would have planted them straight into the garden, but given the continued Siberian conditions, I’ve potted them up in the greenhouse where they join the current log jam of plants that are waiting for spring to arrive. The same is true of any bedding plants that might tempt you on their website, pot them up and keep them undercover so they can carry on growing until it’s warm enough to plant them out.
