Doronicum


Doronicum

It used to be a nice clump but it is getting smaller with every year. Very early blooming perennial but we are way behind with our spring. (Alternative to daffs?)

Yours might be getting smaller, but its way better than mine.

They were saying on the news last night that studies of blue tit nests over a period of 40 years in Oxfordshire has shown our springs are 3 weeks earlier now than they were when studies began.
Pretty doronicums, one of my spring favourites, Klahanie.

Interestingly, our April (2022) was coldest on record... ever, Anget. First week in May, and a local garden center's owner newsletter is promoting food growing but is complaining about the weather too. It is a mother's day this Sunday here in Canada and we traditionally go around to flower shop.
Thanks for the compliment.

Lovely doronicum, mine do very well, but are loved by the snails too..:((

I am happy that they do well for you Janey. Snails can be trouble.So far I do not have problem with them.

mine rarely last a couple of years. I tend to buy £2 ones from the supermarket as they don't last. Cheaper than a bunch of flowers.

I would do that too SBG but it's not always available here.
For some strange reason certain plants are hard to get on this Island even though people love to garden . Maybe logistically it's not convenient to ferry plants which do not make much money over.
We have plenty of roses,rhododendrons, and all the showy plants that cost lots of money but people would buy them anyway.

Now I think you may like some snails Klahanie, I have plenty to share....:))

That's is very generous offer Janey:-) Although, I think I'll pass.

These are very pretty. I have never grown these. The leaves look very nice too.

I agree Homebird, it is very attractive plant for early spring.

Like Homebird I've never grown them either. I like the look of the flowers though! I have seen them growing in gardens around here but that's all. Shame your plants are getting smaller every year! Have you tried transplanting them elsewhere?

Good advice Balcony, I probably should do that

If you do I hope you get some good results!
