Communal garden - council keeps destroying our plants

Posted: 13/05/2013 at 18:32

If your flats are private then it would depend who the lease holders are, they could be arranging for the gardens to be cut etc. Or  I would have a word with your local BBC Radio Station and your local newspaper they may be able to do something for you. Hope you get it sorted asap.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments and advise. I will be putting these in the garden this weekend now, just hope after all this that they grow and flower. Thank you again

Thank you nutcutlet, who would have thought that such little bulbs would cause such a problem. They do look so lovely on the box though.

In tiny writing lower down on the box it says Triteleia Queen Fabiola, I will be honest I have never heard of these.

They are very similar to crocus bulbs, quite small.

Hi everyone, has anybody ever grown California Blue Bells. I have got about 30 of these little bulbs but I don't know anything about them. Can they be invasive and take over your garden or should I just put them into a pot. Any advise would be greatly apreciated.

I have taken Salvia Hot Lips cuttings last year and have got three lovely plants to go out in the next few weeks. This week I have taken cuttings of Alstromeria. I bought these lovely plants in Holland last week so hopefully they will grow big and strong. They are all standing up nice and straight and tall at the moment, so I am keeping my fingers crossed.
