Tracey - strawberries are ok outside.

What sort of geraniums - the hardy sort or the bedding sort that are really pelargoniums?

Allium when you click on the arrow next to the smiley on the toolbar, there's a little slidey up and down thingy at the right hand side of the square of smilies - slide it down and you get a few more

The title was a contentious issue a long time ago with someone else - but not with this WUM - it makes no difference to him whatsoever - he'd challenge us whatever we called it - what he doesn't like is that it doesn't have his name on it.

If we change it now we'll have to change it again and again.  I think the time to change it is when there is nothing aggravating happening - then it's our choice and no one else's

No idea why that website says don't do it then - not my area really   - if someone wants to enquire why they say that, there's a form for contacting the author at the bottom of the page if you scroll down.

Chicky, what sort of irises?  

Ones with corms, rhizomes or the fibrous rooted ones?

 If it's corms or fibrous rooted ones I'd get them in the ground as quick as possible at this time of year - if its rhizomes (bearded iris) then wrap in damp newspaper and put somewhere cool but frost-free until the weekend.

This website is quite clear that you should not compost lawn rakings/clippings that have been treated with iron sulphate.

Hope that's of help
