Snowdrop question

Posted: 16/01/2015 at 08:55

Actually, if they are freshly dug up bulbs then current thinking is that this is the best time to move and replant. Don't leave  it too long though, as Nut says, they really resent being dried out.

Can anyone identify this weed?

Try putting Glyphosate on it for 6 years and waiting to see if it re-grows in Spring. That's what I have been doing with one patch.

Back on again. Not my back now, but it is pitch black out there, blowing a gale and raining. Even I cannot find the whatever to go and garden in this. The wood burner is lit, the Central Heating boiler has been serviced, there is a Brunswick Stew on the cooker,so  I am resting on my laurels. (Never heard it called that before, but it is definitely being rested on!).

I joined the old Beeb site early in 2002 when there were less than 200 people posting on it. Sadly most of the originals have disappeared into the ether (or Faceache).

These days I come and read this stuff when I have to stop gardening. My back is so bad now that I cannot stand up for more than 30 minutes. This gives me something to do while the pain subsides, then I can go back out there again.

If you look very closely at the branches you may see some tiny red dots. They are the female flowers from whence cometh the nuts. Even Corylus contorta nuts are edible.

And try not to leave any of the straight growth behind as it will regrow.

There are some advantages to being retired, even if the money is lousy!

Well, we have seen both the aconites and the snowdrops flowering just above a layer of snow before!

Definitely early. These are normally late February here.

I would include some of the Double Nivalis and possibly viridipice (green one).

Some of the other species are nice and not that expensive, things like G woronovii and G. ikariae are very nice and easy to please.
