What the heck - my purse isn't big enough - but one can dream

Posted: 18/11/2013 at 13:38

I am going to look at my labels tonight and then you can all tell me if they are the sort I should cut back or leave. 

One was a free gift and the other variagated I bought for 7.99 from do it all as it was stunning. tge white one I have had in for 2 years the variagated has been in only one year.

 

they got chicken pellets twice in spring but shall I put some fish and bone round them when I dress with my spent compost??

I decided that 2 evergreen hellebores are just not enough I need more. New colours. I have a white and then a variagated version that is pinky. Off to the garden centre.....

 

i decided to treat myself to a stiff cup of tea when I saw that a 3" potted evergreen hellebore was £5.99!!!!!

i know that they take an age to mature but please I can't afford that!!! Any suggestions for decent sources, or alternative plants with a hellebore size and nature!! I will try and attach pictures of my 2, I'm now rather precious over them as I have seen the price tags!!

 

i cut off old flowering stems last year as newly planted and was told it would help them take hold. I have NO CLUE how to treat them, when to trim up or what to do, novice.com!!!!!!!!

ADVICE NEEDED...lupins from seed

I have sent mine in pots but they just don't seem to have grown at all. They look so spindly!!! I had the same dilemma so I have sent mine home to my parents. My other plan was to put them In a bread tray and fleece over. What more can you do other than find a sheltered spot where your less likeky to get frost and snow sitting on them. 

I'm beginning to regret not direct sowing. I sowed in seed trays and transplanted. I was v careful not to break the roots but I'm wondering why so spindly. They were potted up in about sept!

Monty D's always seem to grow and be a show I hope mine don't die off. Just waiting for the dahlias to need lifting, will then set the allium and hyacinth .

Do I need to put grit in the planting holes as my soil is quite heavy.

Evening all

 

i have some purple sensation allium. Some that are half purple half green and some hiacynth bulbs.

 

my question is, how deep can I plant them. I would like to leave them in but worry I may dislodge or dig up when putting bedding in.
