Depends what sort they are. Have you got a picture?

Anyone done any gardening today?

Deadheaded the buddleia bushes to help them continue flowering as long as possible. Should water pots tonight as still no rain . Good weather for sunbathing, but borders are too dry to plant anything new. My clay soil is like concrete!

My lollypop bay tree has leaves turning yellow from the edges. It is rather pot-bound and I wonder if that's the reason or if it's due to the dry weather. It's in a big pot but I may not have watered it enough. It looked really until recently, even bearing fluffy flowers. What sort of feed should I give it?

I haven't got any of those but I've camellias and skimmias that like ericaceous soil so I suppose I could put them under those?

I bought a box of cheap tea bags and they taste awful. Can I use them in the garden other than adding them to the compost heap?

I bought a bag of bulbs from a cheap shop and I'm delighted they all came up. The label said 'Fringed mixed' and they are very pretty, though mostly red, but one bloom has dozens of petals and looks almost like a rose. Can anyone tell me what type this is as I'd love to order some for next year. Hope you can see the photos to help identify it. Fingers crossed someone knows.

I'm growing them in sacks for the first time this year and I noticed this morning that they are just showing tips of shoots. Tomorrow night we should have a frost so should I put compost or fleece on them?

Anyone bought a bargain?

Popped into Wyevale and headed to the reduced stand. Bought 3 x 1litre pots of flowers at bargain price £1 each instead of £3.99 each.

Bellis Habanera and Dark blue and Pink Forget-me-nots.

I'm ticked pink. (please excuse the pun).
