What's the weather like in your area?

You'd be more likely to float away in the car here than rinse it at the moment - absolutely puddling it down, and has been for 24 hours.

No, there isn't.

Hopefully it'll be sorted tomorrow.

Yes, and that includes the small ones that look like miniature houseplants currently on sale.

Corms - the bottom is the smooth side, the top has bumps or nodules on it - these are where the leaves and flowers come from.

how do i stop woodlice eating my strawberries

Posted: 24/09/2012 at 16:30

Woodlice only move in after something else - probably slugs - has already damaged the fruit.

To try and control slugs, you could try raising the strawberries, straw underneath the fruit, or wildlife-friendly slug pellets.

Are you talking about outdoor or indoor plants?

As far as I'm aware, you can't buy tubers for indoor plants, only the plants themselves.

If you're talking about outdoor cyclamen, then these can be bought as growing plants in garden centres over the next few weeks. They can also be bought as tubers, but these can sometimes fail to thrive because they have dried out.

Anything with hairs can also cause a reaction, e.g., scabious.

They certainly are - you're very lucky.

Do i 'Grow' or 'Cover'??

Leave it open to the air so that frost can break down the soil further. If you want to warm it you can cover it for about six weeks before you want to plant.

Antirrhinums are another bee favourite.
