Not a thing nut! 

If it has webbed feet like a duck, and quacks like a duck.....

No you didn't miss it nut. Perhaps it's anti freeze. That's always a favourite cure all for problems I think....

Lesley - that's the easiest type of 'wait' problem...

Hope all is well in your world Dove 

I did all my ironing on Friday when it was p****ing down. Is there a 'smug' smiley anywhere? 

What kind of jam?

Hey nut  - we're all behind the times -  it must be true , someone else is really interested in the  big new discovery on the poster's other thread ! 

the one where he/she's changed their name...

Funny how they change their names as soon as someone suspects them of selling something isn't it Welsh?  

and there's always a few first time poster 'mates' to bump the thread up too! 


Verdict....your new plants this year

The bargain Canna I got last year (Durban I think) is a bit disappointing. Flowers aren't as dark as I would like , and are two tone (tangerine and yellow)  which is something else I don't care for. 

Tiarella Cygnet has been a real star. Still flowering now and has been since April. I keep deadheading it and it just keeps on throwing up new flower spikes. A little gem.

Typical though - I wanted it to finish earlier so that I can split it and move it to a better site!

Methinks this isn't as it seems Welsh...another old thread about knotweed has been resurrected by the same poster....

and you're right! Those plastic icing syringes would be even better 

When is the best time to plant out the varying bulbs?

Posted: 02/09/2014 at 17:43

Colder weather for tulips to avoid blight as obelixx says, but the little species ones that flower early (February/March are different and can be planted earlier. 

I always try to plant my bulbs as soon as possible after I get them.... apart from the anemones I accidentally mislaid last autumn....

I found them in a pot in spring - still in their little net bag
