What can I do with my spring flowering bulbs?

Posted: 01/05/2014 at 19:49

you either leave them  or dig them up and put in a pot or tub and cover with soil (to prevent drying out  and wet occasionally and leave in shed till autumn but its best to leave them if you can and divide if need be.

it may be ants carrying the aphids to your leaves  causing the curl.All fruit trees should have an oily rag around the trunk of the tree to prevent this ,(veggie oil is what I use).

you will need two,male and female plant if it is not self fertilizing .They are quick growers when they start and lot of water they like but they don't like being pruned although it  is needed as it will take over.Because it is a small plant you will need to water it each day  and watch for pest damage as a small plant it will take time to establish.

I think you will find nothing will grow well due to lack of light and the best Idea  is tough grass and mowing with a strimmer or shears to cut the grass or artificial grass which is the best .
