Like you I didn't think I had mine but they were in amongst the junk

clay soil so little choice of plants

Posted: 23/02/2013 at 19:35

I have similar soil and generally find that most of my plants grow really well in it. I have several plants that obelixx mentioned and so far so good. I bought some small perennial geraniums last year very cheaply and they did ok, but already they are showing new growth so I think they will do better this year. I think plants are extremely adaptable so can do well in soil/areas that might not be the so called perfect conditions for them.

Ps forget to say that Lupins do well for me as well

Nematodes...every slugs enemy:)

Like you after the on slaught on my plants/seedlings last year I'm thinking of using these this year. Was a bit unsure about them, but have been reading peoples advice/information on here. How expensive are they?

Lupin Seeds

Hi GG, I inherited an all purple lupin when I moved here, don't know the name of it.

Had a great show of it in 2011, not so good last year, which might have been due to the poor weather.

Your welcome to the seeds this year but they might not grow true to type

Hiya Sam, If we had a better Summer last year I'm sure they would have flowered. I think I sowed them later in the season outside in the coldframes. I think they did take a while to germinate, they were in takeaway trays

This year, I've sowed them indoors so far I have a couple up

Hi maggie, I had a good show  of early seed sowing last year, but I'm a flower grower rather than veg.

I had loads of blind daffs last year, I put it down to the weather the year before. I left them in  situ and fingers crossed this will be a better year for them

Not really sure Rick, are you talking about Spring bulbs or Summer ones?
