Tulips

Posted: 02/05/2016 at 10:14

you can leave them,(but I always like a change of display) make sure you keep them dry and not waterlogged.I had a fantastic display this year following monty s advice,I did several layers of crocus ,small iris,daffs,and all my left over tulips from the year before.They just keep flowering as one goes over another comes through.

plastic taking over the garden.

Plastic flowers are taking over the planet and I hate them.Everywhere you look are these horrid round plastic balls of green ,even pink! Tubs of plastic flowers appearing in gardens along with plastic trees,bad enough plastic grass is taking over from gravel.Where is the gardening in this,its plain lazy.Are we turning into plastic people?Gardens are vanishing at fast rate under piles of grit and gravel and now plastic .Makes the heart sad to think most people can not find the joy in real alive flowers or grass.

Fruit trees

I have grown from cuttings two apple trees and a cherry,this is their second year and have flowered but the fruit was very little as the trees need to grow a bit more .if you are thinking of buying a tree get a bare root tree and plant about now or january,they are better and cheaper.

what plants will you use from the garden as Christmas decoration?

I have donated to my daughter who is better at flower arranging than me, some holly and ivy,I am pleased to see my roses coming out again and my clematis "john huxable" blooming but she is not having those 

Quince

my quince is the same variety, they need a lot of water and they dislike pruning added to that they are not fond of being next to apple trees,although mine is but my garden spends most of its time being water logged!

camellia

it  maybe a kind of mould because it has got humidly damp or a virus ,camellias need watering in autumn to stop brown marks forming and also in spring.to treat your mould you can wipe it clean (and if in doors ventilate the room) and I treat mine with a drink of garlic water (1 clove in 6 pints of water left for 2 days befrore use) .Garlic kills virus s .
