This is a pot of the Galanthus nivalis which inhabits our garden. We do not think it is straight nivalis as it seems to be sterile.

 And this is what they look like en masse

 There are more as well.

When is the best time to prune Group 3 clematis?

Just starting on ours, but that is because we have over 50 of them and it takes a while to get round to them all.

I do the most exposed ones first and they tend not to shoot for a while yet even when mild like this.

Trouble is there are about 22 species of Pericallis.

Lithium grease is what they use, so bought some.

Dug up one small clump last week, finally got round to doing something with them........over 100 bulbs.

I like the species rather than the multiplicity of forms. Things like G ikariae, and G woronovii and G elwesii. I would really like to get hold of some of the other species, but they get more and ore expensive, the rarer they are.

The gears are metal.

The grease needs to be a high temperature, resistant to centrifugal force type so that when hot it still coats the cogs and does not run down from the gears into the electric motor below.

Same colour as Swarfega, but definitely not.

We are going to a main dealer on Friday (coincidence) so I will ask there.

If it is the one we have grown in the past then they are very nice. Hot and spicy and used by us in Stir Fry meals.

Had to strip one of these down to replace a part. The part took so long in arriving that the grease in the gear box has dried up. It is a bright green type of grease and no where can I  find the correct type to use when re-assembling the machine.

Anyone any ideas?

TIA

Bit hard to do that round about an acre of land, surrounded by fields full of mole hills.
