Arum lily / Zantedeschi growing conditions

Posted: 21/03/2016 at 08:17

In the swan river area of Western Australia, they are a weed of boggy ground, and regarded as a nuisance.

Here in the East Midlands, they are borderline hardy. I resorted to sinking them in a large bucket in the boggy area at the side of the pond, and then lifting and keeping frost free in the winter.

Bluebells are apparently already being spotted early this year. 

Is anyone up for the bluebell walk in April, probably second weekend or mid week.??

Thats the way we always did it when I was a nipper.  It started me off on taking cutting, those and busy lizzies, root easily in water.

Now I've just got to find space for all of them. I put in another six packets of seed today, my zinnia whirligig that I put in the propagator last week are up, so I have taken them out of the propagator, but they still have a polythene lid over them.

to find out who owns land or a property, you do a search at the land registry.

Last night I found out that all my copper bottomed pans wont work on an induction hob. New pans required. More mission creep. Thats apart from the fact shiny new kitchen makes the rest of the house look tired and needs refreshing. Now I remember why I have been spending the money on holidays instead of on the house.
