I'm looking forward to helping Mark with his gardening - do you think he's into roses, salvias, honeysuckle etc, or is he more of a veg man

Average Spend in garden centre

The problem with being close to the city centre is that land is so expensive and nurseries/garden centres need a fairly large area!  I'm afraid that start-up costs/overheads will be high

Mark, please excuse my cynicism - we get a lot of  advertising spam posted on here - do you have any commercial/financial involvement with the company you're 'advertising'?

It's very unusual for anyone other than a Spammer to make their first post advertising a non-gardening product - Spammers usually find this site by Googling the item they're selling - in this case it looks as if you've googled 'rotary washing lines' and found this site - hence your post.

If I'm wrong and you found this site because you've an interest in gardening, then please accept my apologies

I was just going to keep them in the attic until the harsh frost had gone then put the tubs in the garden!

nutcutlet really?!

when is best to plant them? 

As Nutcutlet says - plant them outside in the ground now - spring bulbs should be planted outside from mid September to mid October, but it'll be ok to plant them now. 

Plant small bulbs 3 to 4 inches deep and the larger ones about 6 inches deep. 

They're tough as old boots and will be fine in the snow and frost and will cheer you up as they peek through in the spring.

Don't be tempted to clear snow away from them as they're peeking through - it will actually keep them protected from the worst of the cold temperatures.


Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Fidget ((hugs))

Maybe bootcamp is an idea - what about a few days 'assessment' in a residential home - you could call it respite for your mum.

Our Hefty stopped coming to the terrace for food at the beginning of November.  Think he's under the heap of runner bean haulms and hay that are stacked in a sheltered corner.
