Undergardener is currently cutting hedges.  My job will be to clear up all the mess...

HELLO FORKERS!

I know where you've been eviestevie.  I bought neon  hellebores last  February. One with a yellow back and one with a red back. Both lovely plants.  I bought the new Primadonna last week.Just got to decide what to chuck out to make space for all the new plants.

Yesterday I bought a Miss ruby buddleja reduced to £5 and a red banana reduced to £5. and then got two vouchers for free tea in the cafe. When I got home there was a voucher waiting for me for a free pack of bulbs if you spend over £10.  mmmm might have to make another trip.

You might have better luck  on a fishkeeping forum.

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

phlox paniculata

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.

This threads gone to pot.

OK, who's got it?

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.
