I bought some bare rooted phlox paniculata for 1 pound at lidl. Do I plants them now straight into the soil pot them up in the house or mini greenhouse? Thanks for any help.
Make sure you soak old pots and propagators for a while in water and bleach.
Thanks holly hock I thought they were I live less than 3 mile from the coast so its keeps us slightly warmer in the winter and we don't get as severe frosts so hopefully ok
Tomato feed is what I generally use but stop when the buds of the flowers form as it can shorten the flowering period. Then start again after the flowers have finished
The boulevard collection is what I would recommend in pots most only grow a meter high. Just make sure you are feeding it regularly.
Now sown sweet peas, begonia, marigold, lobelia, petunia, pansy, snap dragon, everlasting pea, black eyed susan, dahlia tubers. How hardy are snap dragon will they survive in a mini greenhouse in april?
I did have a Raymond evison boulevard clematis in a pot as they are meant to be and it did ok. They only get a meter tall. I have took it out of the pot at the end of the season now and have it climbing around a standard rose I have put pea netting around. it did ok but had to watered a lot.
definitely right about addictive I have 14 and bought another 3 I think I have a problem lol.
I spray mine with sodium bicarb and washing up liquid weekly and after it rains. This greatly reduced the blackspot in my roses and is cheap. The bicarb makes the surface alkaline which the black spot doesn't like. The washing up liquid makes it stick.
I was successful with Danish flag poppys last year however I only got one Californian poppy. My theory was this was due to the cold spring killing them off.
