Hooray, I've got an aconite!

Hooray, I've got an aconite! (Eranthis hyemalis (Winter aconite))

Taken 26 March.

I'd given up on these, but one (just one) has finally made an appearance. I'm really happy :o))

Good for you, it is a beauty, once settled, it will return and multiply eventually. They can be fussy at first.

Thanks Michaella, that's good to hear they do better once established :)

Congratulations :o) I love these.

Well done. I saw pots of these marked down in B+Q the other day.

Thanks :)

Hywel do you have these? I thought they flowered earlier than this, I was a bit surprised to see it now.

Scottish it's probably just as well I didn't see those pots otherwise I might've been a bit disappointed with my single lonely aconite!!

Yes I have a very small clump. I've tried many times but failed in the past.

29 Mar, 2013


Ohh, that's a shame :(

Yes it is, but I'm hoping this little clump someone sent me, will be successful ...
I'm pleased you've got one :o)

I did plant 25, lol!
I hope this new clump does well for you :o)

Thanks. Maybe yours will flower next year. Perhaps they're puting down roots first :o)
