Good luck - 300 is a lot!

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.

Great year for Fuchsias

I've got some small trees and other specimen plants growing in pots on my patio - a treat to myself earlier this year. I mulched them with bark chips to try to keep the soil moist, but the last few days I've found the bark strewn all over the patio when I get up in the morning. I suspect it's the blackbirds I often see in the garden. Any ideas how to stop them making a mess or do I need to change my mulch type?
