Oh good - coz thats what i did. Seemed a bit mean to be burying them alive
I have bought pots of tete a tete like this before too. If you are planting them in the garden do you still follow the "plant at depth twice the size of the bulb" rule. Ie do you bury them green shoots and all?
I think it was a helianthus lemon queen - but i have deleted it so i can't go back and check if my memory is working properly
Many thanks for all your replies. It will only need to survive in a pot for a bit, because there will soon be a bed of soil in said courtyard. Think I will need one of the prickly ones to stop the deer having a munch. Will check out the RHS site too.
I would like a mahonia to brighten up my winter courtyard - do you think i will be able to grow one in a pot?
also, any recommendations for good types - particularly with good scent??
Mine is laden this year too - sorry, that doesn't help much
Totally agree - well done BBC
So glad you had a great time Dove. Great nails Panda - bet they make you smile every time you look at your hands
All Christmas cards written here. Beginning to feel vaguely prepared ......
I'd keep them in the small pots - they flower better if they are pot bound
Red - a few of mine have been bareroots - i got flowers from a couple in year 2, and all in year 3 - something to look forward to
