Will I ever learn?

It helps if you get a book to identify the wild flowers as well that way you can distinguish them from the weeds.

Suitable plant ideas please..

You could also put hardy geraniums in I have heavy clay soil and they love it also geum's, heuchera. Primroses would probably like it .

Cytisus plant - will it recover?

Some of my customers have broom ans they were in flower for  a good couple of months last year I think it depends on where you plant them or have them situated if in a pot.

Yellow is the colour.......

I love coreopsis the way they just keep flowering right through summer and that you can divide them so easy and they just take and keep flowering aslong as you dead head them.

One of my customers has osteospermums flowering which I put in last summer all different colours. Also one of them has freesia in flower. I think in 4thPanda's photo they look like osteospermums. 

Sooty mould

Does anybody have any experience or remedies for clearing sooty mould. I believe it can be washed off with soapy water. I also read that water and bicarbonate soda works but I am not sure. I was wondering if anybody has had it, and how they went about getting rid of it. It is on one of my customer's rhododendrons and pieris.

how do they grow begonias tubers as a plug plant

I haven't started mine yet but they should have been ok. They just need warmth but not to wet just moist if they are to wet then they can rot. Another issue can be if the garden centre has had them too long if their dormant season has been too long this can increase the chances of them rotting. You could have been unlucky some of my customers I have left them in the ground or in pots and they come up the following year. I find you are better buying the plants grown and then saving the tuber yourself for the following year rather than actually buying tubers. But then it's each to their own other folks on here might tell you different.

Some bedding plants are grown from seed and the tuber forms later and from cuttings as well. Like dahlias you can grow them from seed and the tuber forms later.

Leather Jackets

Make sure you feed your lawn now though as if we get the summer the powers that be are promising your lawn will suffer with leather jackets as well one of my customers suffered really badly last summer but hopefully it's come through as it's looking really healthy at the moment. At least if you feed it now you are strengthening the roots to minimise the damage.

Apple Tree

I planted four for a customer which are bare root. They were planted back in November. They have no signs of come into leaf yet but it's still quite early for them so don't panic yet as long as it has buds.

Freesia in flower

Should they be in flower this early as it's still quite cold?
