Spring Bulbs?!!

Posted: 11/02/2014 at 08:30

Plant them in pots and feed them when they die down, then they may be good for next year. Some may flower this year which means you will have some pretty pots. I don't know how many you have but they can go quite close together. Then in autumn you can put them where you'd planned and the builders will have gone (hopefully!)

Morning all. 1° cloudy.

All is back to normal, couldn't hear breakfast TV in bed while having coffee this morning as OH was singing so loudly in the bathroom!

Have a good day everyone.

Lily, I see you live in Sussex, lots of lovely gardens round there. What about asking people if they live near to visit Nymans, lovely in June, or Sussex Prairie Gardens later in the year? Or another?

Haven't really popped in here this afternoon as OH came back from visiting grandchildren in England.

I like Sage and Onion too.

Bedtime, night all.

I'd like a plant like this...

Knautia is very happy in my garden in SW France and it doesn't mind drought, but scabious always gets mildew and always dies.

Growing mistletoe

Posted: 10/02/2014 at 15:11

Alan Titchmarsh did it years ago with fresh mistletoe berries on Gardeners World. He made a little cut in the bark and pushed the berry in. A few took, can't remember, may have only been 2, but he did several.

Have you sown any seeds yet this year?

Posted: 10/02/2014 at 15:00

I sowed Lobelia, Busy-Lizzies and sweet peas 3 days ago. Sweet Peas are on a windowsill in the study which is quite cool and the others are in heated propagator on the kitchen windowsill. I have a heated by a cable cold frame in the greenhouse and a cold frame just by the kitchen wall for later.

Other seeds I'll sow in March. Have 2 more heated propagators.
