I ordered 3 plants of hepaticas nobilis that same night.
We don't have ideal conditions in our tiny garden; hepaticas are mostly woodland plants - they like plenty of light during winter months and plenty of shade in the summer.
I can't give them that, so I planted them in pots - last summer they were in a shady corner of our patio and in the autumn I moved them into the brightest patch.
This one is looking little puny at the moment, but it is in flower, with more buds opening up, and the main thing is that all 3 plants survived the first winter and seems quite happy in our garden.
I am very tempted to get some more 😀
As it happens, there is an article about John Massey and his hepaticas in the latest issue of the Landscape magazine.
Back indoors, I finished another Chateau Hexagon block.
