Have they been pruned since they flowered last year, if so when and how?

I think that Caroline meant she would have liked waterlilies, but has found out that they don't like water falling on their leaves, which is absolutely correct - water lilies need still water.

I don't think she was referring to garden lilies.

That's one of the reasons I never by local authority compost.

We had lovely weather here at the beginning of the week when Wonky was here - she took the sunshine back with her and sent it to Verdun

Still got ours on the bed Nut - not risking the summer-weight duvet yet

Can I store gladioli bulbs until next year?

Posted: 14/05/2015 at 17:42

Probably worth trying - but it doesn't always work to Russia or China - there's always some excuse - there's signed for parcels that have been signed for by non-existant neighbours, all sorts of scams.  And friends spent some time in Albania a while back -  things were very different there to places like Hungary where processes and procedures work in similar ways to the rest of the western world 

But for the price of a packet of gladioli bulbs, I'd try the insured route

Oh no.....not again...
