I'm a little confused.I've received 5 Alstroemeria from J Parkers which look like Hairy catterpillars and i've been fed so many different stories about what to do with them.Firstly someone said Acid soil,Someonesays,Lie them flat a couple of inches below the surface,Others say plant upright in normal soil,Anyone have idea what to do with them?

Any advice for first ever visit to RHS Chelsea & GW Live?

Just a quick problem.Do i cut my Skimmias [After it's finished flowering] and my pinks which have got a bit woody,down to the ground?

Thanks Dovefrom above,I'll try that.It gives me the impression it's about to flower,because it looks healthy enough,but then it lets me down at the last minute.Knowing my garden,it will probably flower in July.Thanks anyway.

Thanks Salino and Mike Allen,I'll sleep better tonight knowing i have'nt got to dig it up.Trouble with me,I panic too easily.

I think i may have made a boo boo.I've planted a bare root rose today {Blue for You] from Van meuwen and i was all pleased with myself because i got it nice and deep,put some leaf mould in the hole {i had'nt got any micro-whatsit ] but when i'd finished i realised i'd forgot to put any fertilizer in the bottom of the hole which is ridiculous as i've planted lots of roses before,so will it make any difference and could i put some liquid fertilizer in when i next water as i don't fancy digging it up again.
