Goldfish and tadpoles

The fish will eat them.

Yes. Keep them damp but don’t worry about keeping the pot constantly wet you don't want them to drown.

Begonias don’t handle cold temperatures and frost well, so wait until at least one week after the final frost. I would give them a bit more cover with soil free peat moss compost . They like acidic conditions.

Most plants need a bit of extra watering after first being planted, in order to avoid what is known as ‘transplant shock’. Give your begonias a heavy watering, so that the soil is moist but not drenched. The flowers will need to be watered every few days from there on. Begonias don’t tolerate heavy watering so you might have to bring them in if perlonged rain is due. 

Give them a feed about once a month.

bare root peony

You should be able to put them straight into the border. Sometimes bare root plants can dry out during transit so it is a good idea to soak them in a bucket of water for 2 to 4 hours to rehydrate them before planting. peonies do not respond well to transplanting once they have become established. I plant mine 2 inches but i'm in the north. 

Tulip trouble

Do you know what variety they are? Not trying to be funny but they might be dwarf.

Are they new bulbs?

If not they never look the same in subsequent years – the stems are shorter and thinner, the flowers smaller.

I would like to apologize to anyone I have not offended. Please be patient. I will get to you shortly.

They can be a tad on the promiscuous side, so seeds may not always come true to the colours of the parent plant.

Has anyone seen this plant before?

I had the same problem with a Agave salmiana. I went away for 3 month. Lucky i left the vent open
