scilla peruviana help

Posted: 02/07/2013 at 10:39

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong with this bulb please. I bought it 2 years ago in bloom, with a fantastic flower I'd never seen before. I potted it up so that I could move it around the garden into a warm spot in the summer and protect it in the winter in the Greenhouse. Last summer it did not bloom and again this year it seems to not have a flower developing either. It gets fed along with my other pots on a regular basis, but is not responding. Any ideas folks?

I had seen a friends Fatsia and fell in love with it, but when I bought one I decided to grow it in a big pot as I had seen the monster my friends one had become. Could you dig it up and pot it . I can keep mine under control this way.

As the days..............the place to rest fair creatures who face the winter's test. The bit in the middle is missing. It's special to me as my Mum bought it as a memorial on my Dad's passing, and now she's gone as well it's all the more important to me.

Thanks for trying folks.

I've inherited a statue to put in the garden of a boy/satyr on top of a column with rabbits at the base. It has a poem entitled Autumn but some of the words have worn off. I'm trying to find the poem on search engines but cannot find it. Anyone else got this one?

Ericacious lilies?

Posted: 13/06/2013 at 13:10

That's what they mentioned. If you find they disappear after a few years it's because they're struggling without the ericacious feed! I feel guilty now expecting them to keep flowering without the correct care!

Ericacious lilies?

I heard on a recent radio gardening prog. that lilies prefer ericacious soil, and will bloom much better. I've never heard this before and have been growing them in pots for years. Anyone got thoughts on this ? Have I just been daft not realising that's what they need.?

Fasold beans, any good?

Posted: 28/05/2013 at 12:02

I grew them last year and they were hopeless, but so was the weather, which must have been the reason. Mine only grew to about 1ft tall and had a couple of weedy beans on. Good luck with yours, I hope the sun shines and you get a good crop.

Plant ID please

Looks like my yellow scabious, or cephalaria.Grows to 6 ft usually and the bees  love the flowers. One for the back of borders in my garden due to the height. Comes up every year and the clump will grow. I had to split mine after 4 years as it was getting big.
