Why are the clems and delphs not going straight into the ground?

who is sowing what this spring?

Posted: 18/03/2014 at 21:14

loganb, I have always been told to expect frost up to May18th and then sort of ignore that info except for VERY frost tender plants. So my pelagoniums that have been in the g/h for the winter will go out on April 1st as I need the space in the g/h for seedlings. For sowing seeds directly outside it is a good idea to warm up the soil with cloches/plastic sheeting/old bits of polycarbonate, whatever you have or can get hold of. So warm the soil up for 2 weeks, sow your seeds and have some fleece perhaps to put on top to keep the heat in?

Plant ID's please

Charley, do you mean topsoil from your own garden beds? Why are your plants in huge containers? Any special reason for this? Not being nosy really, just that it is easier for people to answer your question if we know the reason for the containers.

Um.. lynne, why don't you do it yourself? Why would your lawn need this treatment every 3 months?

saffron crocus failing?

I only once ever bought saffron; added it to the meal I was cooking and to my palate it made no difference in flavour at all. I think it may be more expensive than gold.

Jim, are you saying that the conifers survived being ruthlessly chopped back?

Polluted ground

We had a septic tank when I was a child and my father grew masses of Nasturtiums around it and kind of inferred that this was not an area of the garden to play in
