Just had a recap on this busy thread. Nobody is ignoring anyone

 

The Return of Gardeners World-8th March

Posted: 05/03/2013 at 23:00

Bunny, after years of thinking I wanted to listen to Radio 4, I now do

Well worth giving it a try, I find that on the whole there is always something worth listening to. I tend to have the radio on much more than the TV these days.

I also find it's really good to listen to when driving, that way you can dip in and out of programmes.

The Return of Gardeners World-8th March

I'm a recent convert to GQT, well to be honest to Radio 4 in general, I think that it's worth the license fee in itself.

That aside I enjoy gardeners world presented by Monty but I would also enjoy any repeats with Geoff Hamiliton. I've watched some clips of him on youtube and really liked his approach and style. I didn't see him the first time round.

Everyone is different, but I also think that that things and people change and everyone has different tastes. I watched the A-Z of gardening once, and it didn't inspire me at all, but still I think there is another gardening programme onTV and that's a good thing.

Wish gardeners world was on for an hour though

 

Seed swap

Hi Joyce M (mannell).

Can I suggest that you list the seeds that you have to swop and those that you are after here?

I've found that this great place to swop seeds and other plants/cuttings that you may be after. It is a busy place, but I'm sure others will respond once they know what you you want to swop.

Ideas for Hanging Baskets

I think night scented stock might be a good plant to grow in hanging baskets, easy to grow from seed, trailing habit,small root system, smells divine and insects love them.

 

March in your Garden

You've been busy Rain, be interested how your Aubretia do. Sowed some very early this year, no joy, but have seeds left over so might try again.

Great pictures ShropshireLass, Spring is a great time of year, lots of colour. Crocus are one my favourite flowers. They multiple on their own and don't cost much to add too. Love the dogs. Did look but couldn't see the butterfly

Glad others have been seeing the first insects/pollinators out and about in the sun

Another mild and sunny day here and still more crocus are popping through. I love Spring bulbs as you can keep adding to them each year fairly cheaply and they themselves multiply. Saw some sort of bee at the GC on the weekend on the crocus, first one I've seen this year. The daffs didn't do that well last year here so really looking forward to them being out in bloom, already think that it's going to be a better year for them.

I have a tricky bed that does well in the Spring and early Summer but lacks colour later in the year so trying to add some more plants this year.

For me it's always about next year, I love my snowdrops, crocus and hyacinths etc but then always think...........a few more next year would look even better. MInd you I think that about all the plants

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

bulbs in pots

Posted: 04/03/2013 at 19:16

Hi nut, I have a lovely little single Iris in a pot that has been coming up for years with complete neglect. Mine probably could do with a bit of feeding and maybe some new soil, but it keeps coming back.
