There is no demand for them????

Posted: 06/04/2015 at 16:27

I think the ones i used to buy are 6 inches tall. They were ideal for long rooted things, like Hellebores and various shrubs. Congleton Plastics used to make them 20 years ago which is the last time I managed to get some.

LBS Plastics are very good suppliers.

Try buying tall 4 inch square ones. No-one even makes them any more from what I can see.

'Blind' Daffodils

If you tied the leaves last year then that is why they are blind this year. As Bob says, leave them well alone.

'Blind' Daffodils

Feed them is the answer. Give them a good dose of a low nitrogen food (Tomorite). Blindness is generally caused by hunger, so you need to build up the bulbs for  next year. Moving them will not really help.

Compost bin full of potato plants :(

Wait until the potatoes are ready to harvest and then eat them. There will be nothing wrong with them. We frequently dine on 'volunteers' like this.

Add some washing up liquid to the Roundup, it makes the stuff stick to the leaves so that it can be absorbed before sliding off.

Too many worms?

You can't have too many worms in compost. They are primary agents in the decomposition process. The more there are, the faster the material is broken down and the better the finished product.
