I nearly could not think of a plant that was irritating me this month. I almost decided to give this month a miss (my blog, my rules), but then when I thought about it I thought of a plant I could name and shame, except possibly not so much of the shame really, more of a mild tutting at.
I present to you......
Evenley Wood back in 2014 I was reminded how I love them outdoors. I used to have some in my garden at Nottingham and it was a nice memory to return to. So I duly purchased some hyacinths to plant the next autumn and they flowered reasonably well the following spring....
.... and then disappeared. I thought they were dead. I looked for them but nothing appeared so I mourned them briefly and moved on.
This year, pop, there they are. Not all the ones I planted have reappeared but a few have. Enough to encourage me to buy some more. At least this time I will know not to give up hope in year 2, they clearly like a sulk.
So why are they irritating if they have flowered this year? Well where were they last year? That is why they are being tutted at but also gently encouraged as I am very pleased to see them.
What plants are currently irritating you with their behavior in your gardens? Do let me know.
