  1. Judging by this photo I think yours will flower before Easter this year, Chris! Do they grow wild near you too? They like the chalky slopes near us.

    • Easter is late this year and we can’t really expect the plants to adapt to our peculiar timetables. Pulsatilla vulgaris is the only species native to the UK and is very rare in the wild, but it can be grown in some gardens. The plant I photographed is in a cold greenhouse, but I planted some seedlings outdoors last year and they have reappeared which is always a good sign. Beautiful plant even if it has to be nurtured a little.
