I'm not sure what time of the year Chriss2 took her cuttings Nutcutlet,but

don't risk spoiling your tree by pruning it when it's too cold.  Next Autumn

will be fine and thank you very much for the offer - we'll just have to remember !!!???


Talkback: Winter flowers and bumblebees

Are you still seeing bumblebees O ldchippy?  I haven't seen any since the

first frost here and I don't think I have any hibernating in my bee box .

Thanks a lot folks!  Nutcutlet if you have any to spare I would love one - my

flowers/shrubs/trees/etc. are all named after the people who gave them to

me and I have to say the predominant name in my garden is definitely Nutcutlet! !

Bay trees have always been a favourite and I use lots of bay leaves when

cooking - would love to have one to tie a red ribbon onto at Christmas - it looks

so festive!!

Lyn did you get yours from T & M and were they wild bluebells or cultivated?

I'm just wondering as if mine are cultivated bulbs, maybe they won't work

in my wildflower garden as the soil is so poor.

Did you have to do a lot of work on it Flowering Rose to grow it from a plant

to a tree and how long did it take?   I would love a bay tree but can't justify

paying the price for a fully grown one when I have so much else to spend

my pennies on!  I would really appreciate some advice on how to go

about growing a tree like you have.

Just a quick update to say my native bluebells arrived two days ago (not at

all smelly thankfully!)  Like my daffodils, they already had little green shoots,

so I planted them immediately in my wildflower garden and next Spring I'll

let you know whether they all come up or not.  Maybe I should make a silent

apology to T&M right now.......or maybe I should wait and see what happens

Hi Verdun - Just to let you know I received my daffodil bulbs yesterday from

T&M and put them in my garden today.  Apart from one they looked great and

 already showing little green shoots, so will let you know what they come up

like next Spring.  The bluebell bulbs haven't arrived from T&M yet, but they

put a note in with the daffs to say they'd be arriving here's hoping!

Yep Fidgetbones that's cruel all right!   By the way where do you get 

Christmas emoticons from?  Or for that matter all the other ones?  I only

have the happy face (but that's the most important one to have I guess!!)
