the vernon geranium company

Posted: 01/03/2014 at 10:47

Just had a vernon catalogue land on the doormat too.  Its a shame that when these small companies get taken over they get the advantage of the marketing might of the big boys, but that quality goes by the by.  Wonder if anyone has thought of trying to combine the mega marketing with continued quality - could be a winner

Snowdrops in the green - offer

I used eurobulbs last week ( wisbech based) for that reason.  20 "free" bulbs for £6 postage wasn't as good as  Eurobulbs £9 for 100 bulbs - and i needed a few.  When i get myself going i will plant mine today - ordered last Sunday, arrived on Thursday, along with some great quality cyclamen.  They get my vote

Thanks Lizzie - all mine are repeat flowerers, so will go and do some judicious snipping tomorrow after all!

Clematis plants in containers

Posted: 28/02/2014 at 22:44

I have patio clematis in containers that seem quite happy 4 years on.  I put slow release fertiliser pellets in every year, and the insides of the pots were lined with bubble wrap to stop the roots getting too hot/cold.  I think the varieties are Abilene, Ernest Markham and some type of Countess (Nemours?)

Peanuts and Windsong - there is a special thread set up for helping those with flooded gardens ( think it is actually called "help for those with flooded gardens") - they are trying to set up collection and distribution centres. Take a look
