Could somebody identify this flower?

Hello, could somebody identify this flower for me? I know the far end plant is nasturtium but I'm trying to identify te pink and red daisy type flowers. Could they be pyrethrums? The image isn't mine, I found it on Pinterest but would like to grow this plant on my allotment.


Thanks in advance

Onion sets rotting?

Posted: 02/04/2017 at 11:10

Hello :-)


I planted 30 onion sets in little plant pots about 6 weeks ago and kept them inside and then slowly took them outside in the day and brought them back indoors over night. They have really good growth up top and what looks like a really good root system coming out of the bottom of the pots (possibly pot bound?) however when I felt a lot of them they seem to feel really "crispy" for want of a better phrase. Theyre certainly not lovely and round and plump. They almost feel a bit like they have rotted but not quite. Is this normal? Is there anything I can do to salvage them before planting fresh straight into the ground? Like I say, the foliage up top look great, really strong and green?


Thanks in advance :-)

Just out of interest, what is likely to happen to the seeds? Will they just not germinate at all?
This forum is fantastic by the way, and very welcoming!

Pruning Pauls Scarlett climbing rose

Posted: 11/02/2016 at 20:10
Hi, I pruned my Paul's Scarlett climbing rose plant in Autumn and it has a few buds growing on the main stem. The Gardeners world web page says to prune in April. Is this correct? Should I prune again in Spring? Thanks Catie
