Where is Nigel?

Posted: 27/10/2012 at 14:59

How relieved Monty and his family must be to know Nigel is on the road to recovery. I know what it is like to have your dor poorly, mine was diabetic so she was at the vets all the time. Lovely to see Nigel, thank you Monty for letting us know.

Dahlias

I have grown Dahlias from seed, and this year they flowered quite well. I had them in pots and couple of the pots I just plunged into the ground in my front garden. I have taken them in now and hopefully they will reward me again next year.

Storing Fucshias

Posted: 23/10/2012 at 18:13

I've got quite a few Fuchsias and over winter mine in a heated greenhouse, the tempreture is is kept above freezing. I let the leaves yellow and then remove them and any dead flowers. I do cut them back slightly and water them sparingly over the winter so that the compost doesnt completly dry out. If the winter is really cold I put fleece over them as well. Mine are now all in the greenhouse for the winter. I have started two new standards this year, I just love them, they are such a joy to grow and so easy to take cuttings to get new plants.

Exhibition vases

Posted: 18/10/2012 at 17:43

Hi Try this web site http://www.close2real.nl/index.php/assortiment they are in Holland. They do do vases and there is an email address to contact them. I do know the shop next door to them deals in a lot more in vases but I afraid I can't remember the name. I have been there and it is a fantasic shop. I know its not in this country but I hope this helps.

when should I prune Buddleia ?

I agree with jo4eyes, I do exactly the same. Mine are in two large pots and really do well. I have had them for about ten years and they flower every year.

After seeing these on Gardeners World last week, I would really love to have a go at growing these. They look so pretty and delicate dancing about in the breeze. I will be honest, I haven't really given them a lot of thought before, but after seeing them on GW I would love them in my garden.
