philadelphus flowers gone

I do feed the local birds every day, and maybe they think I've laid on flower buds as part of the menu!

philadelphus flowers gone

Posted: 02/07/2013 at 10:47

Where have all the flowers gone? From two 3 year old plants there are only a couple of flowers on each one. I can see where they should be on the tips of the stems but it looks as if they've all been pinched off! Am I feeding a little feathered friend? A neighbours plant is covered in blossom, so I'm very disappointed.

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?

Posted: 13/06/2013 at 12:39

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.?
