If you have foxes, you don't get rats.
I prefer the foxes, and the cubs playing on the lawn are so cute.
If you want lots of wildlife, you have to be a bit untidy, to give them undisturbed areas.
My Allium christophii self seeded under the wisteria. There are now hundreds of the things because I do little weeding there. I must get in and move some to a better position.
Container grown as opposed to containerised (as wg wb found) are a lot more expensive than bare root. If you buy from a garden centre in a pot, tip it out to see if its just a bare root packed in peat.
Mail order, I would order bare roots now for delivery November, and meanwhile start to prepare the planting holes.
My Peony seeds germinated after I had chucked them out after 2 years. I have a place where I tip all seed trays where the seed has not germinated after 2 seasons. It's surprising what comes up in it. You have to have an idea of what the first true leaves look like though.
Do ame as nut says, and give it another season.
I let bulbs in pots die down of their own accord. Then you can remove to replant if you wish. Or you can put the potted bulbs into their final position, anytime they are growing as you would with potted plants.
Beechgrove....Mrs Doubtfire does gardening. love it
I would pull out all that yellow ragweed before it seeds.
Anemone blanda only about an inch deep. Fritillaries in damp soil about 2 inch deep.
If you don't plant them this year , either in pots or the earth, then they will dry up and be no good at all.
Try pictorial meadows in Sheffield. hey have different mixes depending on what type you want.
They have wonderful display gardens too. The scent of these roses is divine and they are usually repeat flowerers.
Yes, pot them now. Keep in a sheltered position by the house wall. If it gets really cold, you could put them in the garage, or a shed while they are dormant.
