Aquilegia are pretty flowers. They do cross pollinate so wait and see what colours you get. And they will self-seed, so pull up what you don't want.

The violets are lovely this time of year, and I like the leaf shape too. I encourage them in my garden - they are so small and dainty anyway, and don't take up much space.

Does anyone know when...

Tonight- yay!!!

When do I repot please?

The bottom ones have got too straggly. You might be able to save them by pricking out but planting the bendy stem deep with the leaves poking out about 1 cm about the level of the compost. This sometimes works. If not, get more seed and start again.

Good luck!

Overwintering daffodil bulbs

You should really plant them somewhere permanent from the outset. They are not meant to be lifted and replanted. You should put them somewhere they can naturalise in beds, borders, or grass and just leave them alone. Pots are fine too as long as you are prepared to leave the leaves on until they have completely died back. They need the leaves to feed the bulb to produce flowers for the following year, so don't tie them up or cut them off or you wont get any flowers.

I'm growing no. 6 as a houseplant, but have no idea what it is.

Christmas stuff in shop

A card shop in my town had Christmas cards in stock at the end of July! I'm not joking....

Not a major problem, just water it!


No such thing as a bargain!

Did it not say what size pot they came in or whether they were plug plants?

I got some lavender from T&M in May and 3 of the 5 have died already. It's not like I'm a novice gardener either, so I'm not sure why. They started shooting nicely and then just died off. Very disappointing.

What is this plant?

The bees love this plant, so I encourage it in my garden.
