Ok, there could be a couple of reasons...firstly it could be the size of the bulb - larger bulbs could produce bigger or more flowers per bulb. As you mention hyacinths this could be the case or the more expensive bulbs could be treated to flower earlier - they have been heat treated or forced and therefore they are used for indoor flowers, usually flowering around Christmas indoors as opposed to normal bulbs which will flower in spring. I would expect it to state that somewhere on the packet if that were the case.

Lilies in my experience flower once. After flowering you can feed and keep them well watered to help the plant build up the bulb again in order to produce flowers next year.

I don't think it is a water beetle. If you look closely it would appear to have wings (I think)

As you have got young plants several which will cling by tendrils you might be better to staple some plastic square trellis to it (image below as I don't know if I have explained very well) so you can tie in and give them a leg up.

Thanks Joyce, I would speak to your neighbours then as the points mentioned will have been talked through with them before they made their purchases. They should be aware of all services, suppliers, rights of way etc. Let us know how you get on 

What's the weather like in your area?

Very dark dull and wet morning in Essex - not feeling very warm either!

Fairygirl, gardeningfantic is not talking about the main thread board but personal message sending if you click on 'public profile'

Gardeningfantic, just went back into 'my messages' and although it says I have sent you a message it also says above and below it - 1 message returned but I don't you if you have replied and I can't access it or my original message has been returned - all very confusing !

Ok, now I understand. I have just sent you a personal message without a hitch (1st time I have used that section of the board). Let's see if anyone else has a problem as the day goes on...

I've no problems. Big green reply button has appeared as normal...let's see if you can reply on this thread or if you will have to start another thread to reply...could be an interesting conversation as anyone else without a reply button will have to do the same thing!

I'm sorry Joyce. I don't understand. Are the houses in your road - council properties, housing association or privately owned?
