Thank you very much. Is there anything else in the garden that could benefit from a dose of ES?

Your answer was helpful to me too Verdun,does it matter what time of the year I spray with epsom salts?

what does your garden mean to you

When I was 4 living in Germany, there was a field at the back of our house and this gave me my first plant memory as it was covered in red poppies that were as tall as me. I can still see the colour, smell the grass and see the petals moving. There is so much we forget as we grow up but that memory affected me forever and wherever I live plants and trees have been my saviour. As soon as I was old enough to follow my father around through woods and watch insects climbing around his roses, pinks and dahlias and feel the impact of what gardens can do for you I was out there and could not wait to have my first garden. I have had large and small gardens and no matter what the size, the joy of filling them with plants, birds and insects gives such a sense of achievement and has boosted my confidence no matter what. We poor old humans have little control on what happens in the rest of the world but the pleasure and excitement that comes from developing your own plot and creating even the smallest pocket of beauty is a marvellous thing.

Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?

I think what you are doing is a great idea. I look forward to seeing what results you all have. I have had the odd thing from Sarah Raven and they are a bit more costly as is Crocus. Crocus have good quality plants but now seem to only send out 9cm pots whereas in the beginning they sent out larger plants. Such a nuisance this time of the year if you do not have a greenhouse. I have used Hayloft Plants and find them reasonable value as although small they sell in threes and the postage is always kept lowish. Assume your 190% discount is from GW mag. Very useful.
Good luck everyone

I have a GG which is growing well. The flowers are a beautiful colour although I
made the mistake of putting it a few feet from a red chaenomeles which stands out more against the fence. Would have stood out better next to more green. It is growing plenty of branches and the flowers look very delicate. A very ladylike colour!
