watch out for Tescos bargains,bought 50 bulbs for 3 pound which were marked 5pound but alas the second time round dispite the £3 pound sign charged £5.a little naught on their part I thought.
the ants are getting ready to harvest the aphids by puttting them there (watch) and farm them to their advantage thats why you put a oily rag round apple tree to prevent this.
the death for a cactus is to over feed it and over water it and to neglect to water it at all.they draughts and airless rooms but like warm sunshine.do not put between the curtains in winter.
it does keep and I use it the next year while waiting for the next batch ,keep it ina dark area ,i dont cover it ,I use demi jars that i use to use for wine making.
once it dies it does not recover best to remove stump.
the aquieglia will take in the garden now and you will find small plants everywhere as they seed very well but i do plant some in trays so asto put them where i want and to give away.Deldhiniums Iwait until spring or the weather right in the green house .
make sure the leaves and any stems that drop or you cut off are put in the bin because if left will spread.
Azalea,it looks like,a bit scraggy.
i use my moss for hanging baskets and found that by keep dig it up was the best.
The mornings are becoming cooler and the season is beginning to change.Its not quite time over for flowers as there are many that will flower for a long while yet.Its time to plant those wallflowers in a spare patch to grow on and to get seed from the flowers as they go over such as sweetpeas.I am getting ready to get those spring bulbs planted before the earth becomes cold such as tulips and dig up those spring ones that need to go into shed as the tubers when they finish flowering.The Apple has been pruned and the grape vine in october and no later.The final clip for some hedges and to sort out the pond plants that need to be divided.Choosing the spring bulbs is my favorite and hopefully they will bloom next spring .A busy time for gardener.
