HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 03/02/2014 at 13:43

I think they are on for all of February. The snowdrops for sale will be picked over by the end of Feb, but the ones in the woods are still flowering. Next weekend, I am going to Ashwood nursery in West midlands, so next weekend no good for me. I can go in the week as well, I havn't got much work on this month.

I hope you are feeling better, James. It will be a good job when we can all get back in the garden, its not safe in the house. ( Apart from Puncdoc, who fell off a ladder in the garden) Everyone is stir crazy.

 Clarington, Kef, and Punkdoc, do you think we could get up a yorks/east mids contingent to see the snowdrops at Hodsock priory? Anglesey Abbey is too far for me on a day trip.. I went a couple of years back and they were lovely. You will need wellies for tramping around the woodland bit. If no one else is interested,  will take my mum next week and then post pictures.

Buddleia Buzz cuttings

Cut the two long shoots down to about 6 inches (15 cm ). They will sprout from the bottom then to give you a bushy plant.

Tootles, it sounds like its too dry. If you tip it out, wet it, (or get the men to "water" it, tip it back in, it should help it break down faster.

What to do with left over turfs of grass?

If you put them upside down in the compost bin, they will be fine. If you do find somewhere to stack them, turn them upside down and cover with black plastix to exclude light. They make lovely soil to use in potting mixes.

Its probably too young to flower. if its in a sunny position, it will flower sooner than in shade, although it will tolerate some shade.
