I bought some very poor cyclamen from the supermarket for a £1 for six,they were yellow and I thought I would only get one.Put them outside for a few days and they turned green and started flowering.now planted out they are flowering and looking lovely.Also my best bargain was orchids being sold off or ones my daughter discarded.And my Acer which came free with a apple tree.
the frost will kill it,it is flowering because its fooled into thinking its the right conditions.I bring mine in unless you have a very sheltered protectected area.
I found cheap seeds in the pound shop and they were the best I ever had,out of date or what they all came to something.
I have a Gunnera which I grow in a pot to stop it growing too big,it has to be well watered during one of those dry spells and I use the old big leaves to protect next years new stems/leafs.I first saw this plant in Cornwall in a big garden it was fantastic.I also saw one at ford abbey where they have a wonderful bog garden.(lovely to visit in spring).My Gunnera I grow by my front pond and it has survived so far.
if as the name suggests,hollies are female or male,if you have a male no berries,if female berries but you have to have a male holly to make berries unless its one of those self fertilizing ones.
it looks like a type of lanverder or cat mint .
cats are best if not that terrier dogs with pest controller ,gone instance .
of which plant are we talking about?
well I heard you can use Hawthorn berries but as a ketchup that's novel.Do let me have the recipe.I make a lot of jams and jellies from wild fruit so would be interested to know.
