Hi Mallingopal,Are they too congested? Mine stopped flowering so split them up and repotted them last year after they had died back. I dont put them under cover and they had to endure a bit frost, but they all flowered all this summer. I keep them fairly rootbound and feed them and put mulch on top (usually horse manure, as I put that on almost everything with no adverse effects!) These plants are about 10 yrs old so as the others have said before, it may be that yours are still young, or did they come into flower in the past?
try primroses, they would look natural and you can propgate them easily.Bluebells if its shady
I tried Kohl Rabbie this year, loved it as a coleslaw in salad or boiled in soups, very easy to grow and you can cook toe leaves like cabbage.
Hi Verdun, sorry I,ve just been catching up on this thread, it was the Ying Tong song!
We named our siamese cat after it!!
Anyone remember the Shadocks, it was a bizarre French cartoon of creatures on other planets??!!!
Hi Clarington, re bubblewrap. I would insulate all the panes if you are in a cool area. It might also be a good investment to get a parafin heater or electric for really bad weather.
Hey Verdun, do you remember the Goon shows?
I'm reading The Lollipop Shoes, by Joanne Harris of "Chocolat" fame. No gardening tips sadly, its set in central Paris. Lots of descriptions of chocolate though... mmmmmm......yum
The top pic is a view from The Chase Pub, where we had our lunch.
Here are my 2 dogs on top of the Malverns (their reward for staying in the car whilst we went round the garden)
We went to Picton for my hubbys birthday treat on 10th October. It was gorgeous. Love this part of the country, the views from the malverns overlooking Wales is spectacular.
