Anyone know what this is?

Yes leave it and it will do the job for you. You can then transplant to where you want it.

elaeagnus flowers?

Posted: 05/09/2013 at 20:36

I have one in my garden about sixt feet high and in the 10 years I've been here it has never flowered. I didn't know it could. Saying that I have a variegated pittosporum that flowers and I didn't know they did flower.

Getting started.

When we made ours we dug down to churn up the soil and then mixed in bags of multipurpose compost, let it settle and then we added chicken manure pellets and dug them in. It is worth you digging down to see what the soil is like underneath. I have read that you don't need to do this and just add topsoil or compost to top up your new beds as whatever you grow in them will find their own nutrients.

More Tomatoes

We've been growing garden pearl for about 5 years now and they have a good taste. For the first time we've also grown Tigrella and Costoluto genovese. The Tigrella are about the size of satsumas with striping and they taste good, but the Costoluto are a big tomato that are palm sized and are very good sliced in sandwiches and also on top of cheese on toast. They are very tasty and are not very watery.

Unknown bulbs

The round bulbs look like bluebells to me, the pointy ones could be tete a tete daffs. It will be good to see who guessed right when they come up in spring.

Another foxglove question and a rose cutting question

Posted: 03/09/2013 at 15:53

Some foxgloves are biennial and some varieties are perennial. If you still have the plant label check that, or if not collect the seed to sow again.
