100 Free bulbs

Posted: 05/08/2016 at 08:05

Trouble with the free Allium bulbs is that it contains A ostrowskianum (farreri and other names) which is an absolute thug of the first water, almost as invasive as Muscari.

Mine are out in the garden and I have never bothered digging them up. They spread a bit, but they have flowered every year since being planted. The bulbs on these are normally fairly small in any case.

Plant ID's, please

Crab Apple Tree in trouble

That looks thirsty to me. The trouble is that roots are often reluctant to leave the compost and when that dries out there are no roots in the soil outside to take up moisture. Give it a good soaking and them mulch around the area. Hopefully it will grow a new set of leaves.

What is this?

At last one I know. Pokeweed, aka Phytolaca americana

What plant is this?

You need to either make that into a link or post the image direct using the Camera icon at the top right of the page.
