You might have better luck  on a fishkeeping forum.

This is a gardening forum, although some may also keep fish.

phlox paniculata

Posted: Today at 11:24

I had some hayloft phlox this year. When they hadn't arrived way past the due date , I emailed. They said they had been sent but would send again. They eventually arrived mid July , even though I said it was far too late, along with penstemon, that I had asked for money back, again far too late.  1 penstemon died 2 days later., but the rest are growing, but will not flower this year. Out of 12 bare root phlox, 5 have shown signs of life, they rest appear to be dead, and certainly none will flower this year. I am giving them the full 8 weeks I was told they might take to break dormancy, then I will be putting in another complaint.  The salvias I ordered at the same time(April), arrived in June and are doing really well.

Funny thing is... and I watched the video..... The camera tracks the thieves taking away the turf. Since a security CCTV is fixed, that wouldn't have happened.

If the camera operating neighbour was watching them, why didn't he call the police?

Any supermarket will have clear food storage bags which have zip lock tops.

Ordinary carrier bags which are opaque are no good. If you have the cuttings in a 3 inch pot, use a cut down 2l pop bottle as a propagator.

I use a tray with a propagator lid, available from most garden centres.

If you want to lift, then wait until the remaining spike has gone brown.

I have grown the same...Priscilla, £1 for 15 corms from Lidl.

two bags full have given me loads of cut flowers for the house.

At that price, its no hardship to buy a couple of dozen each year. In free draining soil, if they are planted deep, they will survive most winters and rebloom next year.

I grow them in lines in the veg patch, taking the space when the broad beans come out.

Pollination failure in my cucumber plants :(
