Delphinium Delfix Rose

Posted: 27/07/2015 at 06:45

My delphiniums' first flush of flowers is over (some flower earlier than others) - I'd cut your flower stems back and feed with some tomato feed - you might get a second flush of flowers this year, or you might have to wait until next summer - yours sounds like a young plant.  Treat it well and don't let the slugs get it and hopefully it'll be twice the size next year.

I buy my roses from the late Peter Beales' Classic Roses

You won't buy better anywhere and their site has a fantastic search facility to help select the right roses for your conditions.

Good morning all

Love the way you had your migraine the d ay before the party Wonky ... that way you'll be bright eyed and bushy tailed for Bressingham today, won't you?

It's still raining here, but the forecast tells me it's going to clear up soon, and I can certainly see the signs of some breaks in the clouds over in the west - fingers crossed folks, otherwise there's going to be a lot of cake eaten

Of course there'll be the opportunity for plant shopping at Bressingham today and I'm trying to ensure that it's planned and targeted and not totally random - I have Aster frickartii Monch in the west border and need more similar for late colour - I seem to remember that there are some that get mildew and some that don't - can anyone remind me which are which?  Since I renewed my virus stuff yesterday morning the laptop won't let me Google!  I've not got time to sort it out today so I'm picking your brains instead - someone on there the other day said that the forum is better than Google, didn't they

Newbie alert!

The day has dawned and it's still tipping down - but according to this it'll stop soon and just be cloudy so as long as we have sensible shoes we should be fine ...... fingers are very crossed.

Nut, can I put my name down for a persicaria cutting please?

See you all soon ...............

I've a sort of aloe/echevaria type houseplant - it's outgrown all the windowsills in this house - does anyone have wide sunny windowsills or a conservatory and would like this one?  It's in a shallow pot about 10" diameter.

Gladioli bulbs found in shed.

If they're  firm and not squishy and smelly then they have a chance.  They may not flower this year, but may grow now, die down and then grow again and flower next year. 

I'd give them a chance - what've you got to lose?
