Hi, I have decided to try collecting & growing my own seed. My problem is many articles tell you how to collect & store but not when is the best time to sow. I have collected campanula,salvia, allium & hellebores. Should I sow now or in the spring. Any advice appreciated. Thanks

Suggestions Please

Hi, this is the first season of planting my box parterre. Spring has been very successful with white tulips under-planted with wallflowers. Could anyone suggest summer plants.  Many thanks.

An update on my box problems of last year. At the moment they are all looking really healthy, hopefully they were just stressed due to planting & the wet weather. Obviously I am keen to keep them looking good-I intend to spray with clear rose but should I do this before or after I trim them. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi, Thanks for the response. Willowplanter, I am a little more hopeful as after spraying & clearing out dead matter the die back has stopped; as you mentioned mine were newly planted.  Lavender Lady, the programme was useful but had unfortunately fed before I watched it!!.  With lots of TLC I hope they will recover

Hi, I'm hoping it is not blight. Have contacted my supplier(garden centre) their own look same. He suggested weather to blame and to feed and spray with rose clear ultra. Will give it a go. Thanks for site, very helpful.

Hi, I have planted up two box parterre and a bed of box balls. I followed all guides and did not scrimp on planting e.g grit compost bone meal.  After looking healthy for 3months they have suddenly taken a turn for the worst.  I suspect blight after reading up. I have spent approx £400  surely I haven't wasted this money!! Please, any advice would be appreciated.

Hi, could anyone advise why my chilli plant flowers are dropping off at stem.  I am new to this but guessing this is not supposed to happen.  Any help would be appreciated.
