Anemone de Caen

Posted: 30/03/2014 at 09:50

I have found reading this thread highly amusing!  People get so het up about their gardening, don't they? 

I live in Norfolk about 4 miles from the sea as the crow flies. I have been trying to grow anenome de caen for about 10 years with varying results. Last year I planted corms in groups in an open border around the patio which is west facing and they have been fantastic. In fact they have been flowering right through the winter (I know it has been a mild one! But very wet). As my patio is about 2 feet lower than the surrounding garden, the border is very free draining. In previous years I have tried growing them in sheltered borders and in heavier clay soil. They would come up and flower the first year and then disappear. Last year was going to be my last attempt! I have bought some more this year to try in another border, which is East facing. Fingers Crossed! 

Most of the clay has now been broken up so is not so heavy. I work in spent compost from hanging baskets, which has helped.

Did you have to do anything special to the plant to get it to fruit?

I have had my kiwi plant 6 years now. It grows well and makes a lot of leaf every year but no flowers and consequently no fruit!  It is a self fertile variety, but unfortunately I have lost the label so I can't remember the name. Any help will be welcome.

Parsley help

I bought a tray of 6 different herbs for £3.99 about 5 yeas ago. The parsley just keeps growing and growing. I pull it out and it just keeps coming back. It's also in various pots around my garden. I don't know about germinating difficulties - it seems to self seed quite happily!  Most of the others didn't do so well apart from the chives. I now have 3 clumps of them.
