The  season  has  started .

The season has started .

A  few  more  that  are  blooming  early .

 

The  first  yellow  trumpet  for  many  seasons  has  been    JFM    96 – 12 .

Rather  scruffy  by  show  form  but  consistently  early  ,  good  stems  and  a  good  flower  rate .

It  is  bulking  up  steadily  and  will  be  a  very  useful  early  market  cutflower .Opens  well  from  bud .

96 – 12

As  we  have  a  comparatively  mild  winter  ,  the  early  Sol  D,Or   often  set  seed  naturally  .

Many  seasons  ago  I  flowers  a  group  of  Sol  O P   and  still  have  a  few  in  the  garden .

None  can  match  the  true  Sol,s  for  strong  colours  but  all  have  that  great  fragrance .
