Mystery viburnum

Could well be a Ribes, but it seems very early for them to flower.

Is it just me?

I had this problem with the bulb thing on top of the Provado. In the end I took a knife and cut off the top of the bottle and used the old measuring cup which came with the old bottle.

There is no demand for them????

I think the ones i used to buy are 6 inches tall. They were ideal for long rooted things, like Hellebores and various shrubs. Congleton Plastics used to make them 20 years ago which is the last time I managed to get some.

LBS Plastics are very good suppliers.

Try buying tall 4 inch square ones. No-one even makes them any more from what I can see.

'Blind' Daffodils

If you tied the leaves last year then that is why they are blind this year. As Bob says, leave them well alone.

'Blind' Daffodils

Feed them is the answer. Give them a good dose of a low nitrogen food (Tomorite). Blindness is generally caused by hunger, so you need to build up the bulbs for  next year. Moving them will not really help.

Compost bin full of potato plants :(

Wait until the potatoes are ready to harvest and then eat them. There will be nothing wrong with them. We frequently dine on 'volunteers' like this.
