Flower Garden Mid March Catch Up

@cloudberryflowers-flowerfarm Flower growing in zone 8b, Scotland.
In this weeks video we catch up in the greenhouse, transplant snowdrops and get ready for Mother’s Day.

It has been another really cold week with temperatures of minus 6 overnight again but spring is in sight with it getting milder at the end of the week. Time to harden off overwintered plants, sow flower seeds, pot on seedlings and plant up pots of flowering bulbs for Mother’s Day. The snowdrops put on a great display but now they are finished and its a good time to divide and transplant them.
