Bonsai tree

Here is a birch sapling I found growing in the garden in 2010 and decided to try to bonsai it.  From the above comments I think I need to prune the top growth now.  The roots are cut regularly and it is watered every day and fed once a week.  I love the moss that has grown (came naturally).

They all look like weeds to me.  There is a weed that looks remarkably like carrot seedlings and when I saw your first picture my reaction was ug bindweed.

I have seen lots of postings on here saying that Crocus are a very good company to deal with.  Just wait a while and you get lots of information about them popping up on here.

Susie - they like full sun and a well drained soil.  They are generally quite easy to grow.

The perfume is lovely so I agree with your choice.  Have you got a photo you can post on here so it will give us an idea what your problem is.

Although my onions are still growing I have noticed that some of my fellow allotmenteers onions are bolting and look very brown.  Maybe that is what has happened to DerbyDuck's onions and they need digging up and drying off.
