Allium Schuburtii

Posted: 06/04/2016 at 17:53

I did a posting years back about growing Alliums etc. from seed. You really need fresh seed to be certain of germination and they take a few years to reach flowering size. Buy the bulbs and let them self seed, easiest way.

Allium cuthbertii is probably as big too.

Fruit, Berry, poisonus or edible

Tasteless! I tried.

How Many Have You Got?

I wash the outside of the pots when I take them to sell.

And before anyone says anything about hiding my earnings in tax havens, any profit I make goes to charity..

How Many Have You Got?

Er, lets see, the remainder of 7.000 of the square 3in type. About 2,000 of the small round 2 in ones, and about 3,000 plus of ones which look very much like those root trainer things, 4 inches tall and 1 inch sqaure. Plus a few hundred 1 litre pots for bigger plants.

So a few more than the average.

Many of them filled with plants though.

And use the best quality weed suppressant fabric. The cheap stuff does not last very long at all, false economy really.

If it is still small then leave it alone or just take the tips of the old branches off to force it to make new ones.

Did you prune it?

The catkins come on wood grown last year, so now is the time to cut it back to encourage new growth which should flower next spring. Just been doing our willows.

Woodland path ideas

Our woodland path is as that of Obelixx, though the edges are  half logs. They have lasted 20 years and are only now beginning to rot. The bark comes from our own shredding.

I suggest you remove your phone number H. You never know what odd calls you might get. Send it to folks in a PM.

Dahlia tubers are reputed to be edible when roasted. BUT Don't take my word for it. I have never tried them.
