The AGS Show in Whitworth Manchester for tomorrow has been cancelled because of the weather.

And the dried bulbs you see in G/C''s are dead, but only growing plants.

Any Alpine Garden Society and Scottish Rock Garden Club shows are worth visiting.

These are some of the plants on display at the last one in Blackpool.

Talkback: How to plant out leeks

Colcos, you could pot them up and grow on until the soil is warm enough to put them out.

Brenda, normally we plant ours in early May when the soil is warm here. In milder areas you can do it earlier.

Jennie, saldly no matter what you do, those leeks will go to seed now. Best would be to eat them before that happens.

Tomato Growpots, any good?

Posted: 15/03/2013 at 18:02

They are very expensive. We were given some many years ago and still use them. Cleaning afterwards is not problem, we just soak them in a bucket with dilute Jeye's Fluid.

But why pay all that money? The rest of our toms are grown in bottomless plant pots on Growing bags.

Ours have been frosted for the last week or so, until late on today. Now they are all stood up as if nothing had happened.

can i plant sprouting doffidil bulbs now?

Actually they may well flower this year, but next is another matter. At this stage they will not have time to develop a really good root system, which they need to build up the bulb in orfer to produce a flower next season. In susequent years you may well get them to flower though.

However, they will certainly die if left unplanted so you have nothing to lose really.

Personally I would wait and see if the other branches produced normal fruit before I did anything. Indeed the small fruit may only be a reaction to the poor weather last year.
