A lovely Surprise

Last summer I planted some terrestrial Utric's in my outdoors sink bog garden, just to see what happened. It was a very mild winter here, and the plants were insulated with a plastic bell cloche. Didn't think I would see them again. We get to the end of May, and the U.praelonga is poking its head up, and U.livida is spreading with a vengeance. U.bisquamata "Betty's Bay" is a no show however. It was a really mild winter though . . .

Cheers from Bill.

Some clarification: there were only a few days when temperatures dipped below -2°C all day, and no snow on the ground for longer than a few hours all winter. Very wet conditions but not a great deal wind chill.

Cheers from Bill.

The U.bisquamata "Betty's Bay" has poked it's head up today!

Lots of flower stalks on the U.livida.

Cheers from Bill.
