IT'S MY BIRTHDAY....PART TWO

Posted: 02/01/2017 at 18:37

Happy birthday Berghill 


Chrissy - we're all 27 on here , no older, no younger - it's our opinion that is the perfect age - even Wonky and I are both 27, and shes my daughter 

Your worst Christmas present!

Absolutely agree with Joyce - you cannot quarter an amaryllis bulb - it will kill it  Galanthus will increase without the offsets being removed and potted separately and will look much prettier left to grow into natural clumps

BL yes she's happy with that. As you say, the money will be handy and there's less time for first day nerves to build up  And she'll be in a warm office 


Topbird - hope you get a better night tonight

Didn't stay as OH is trying to keep his cold to himself.

It's probably doing more underground than above, developing a good root system before it can make top growth. 


I agree with Pansy - remove the ties. Then clear the grass from around its base so there's a circle of bare soil with a diameter of at least a couple of feet, so the shrub isnt competing with the grass for moisture and nutrition. in February give it a feed of Fish, Blood & Bone as per the directions on the pack. It's a slow acting organic fertiliser which will provide nutrition for the  coming year. In dry spells give it a bucket full of water twice a week.  It should be fine.

Wild flowers now

To differentiate between pink and red campions - the pink has a green calyx whereas the red campion has a red calyx. 


Gorgeous to see the pics.

Good morning all   The house is quiet - I'm the only one awake ... There are field fares chattering in the churchyard
