spring bulb crisis!

Posted: 23/10/2012 at 20:02

Which bulbs do you think were the most affected?

I planted a lot of daff bulbs and a lot of them came up blind  this Spring or the flowers were damaged this Spring. Very poor showI'm pretty sure it was because of  weather conditions.

Some of my crocus heads were also snapped and bitten off, from what I've learn't this  in my garden it may well be birds, apparantly they do go for the yellow ones

Moving beech hedging

Posted: 21/10/2012 at 21:02

that's a lot of hedging. The reason I say this that we've had some beech "hedge" which have been moved around a lot over the last year- 18 months, they were 1ft- 4ft  and even that was hard work.

I'd be tempted to cut them down a bit at the top, add some staking,or tying to the walls let them recover for next year

Evening everyone, my lazy day did extend in to today as well, not much done but a good time was had.

By chance saw that Faulty Towers is having a rerun, true comedy just gets better with age, brilliant SCD, never thought I'd say it it but  I was hoping that cricket player would go over Jerry Hall.

I'm going to embrace  my middle age as Radio 4 is great, I do complain about the young,older comedy gets better, but I still play loud music.

Although somewhat expected, it's going to get colder

oldchippy- I do know what you mean,very poor year for daffrs this year. That's why I'm not buying any this year, all those that didn't perform I'm hoping they will they will come into their own next.

PLANTING NOW

Posted: 20/10/2012 at 17:25

Hello- I've got several clemantis montana plants that were grown from cuttings earlier this year. They are in good size pots and live in a sheltered outside position. The roots have only started to pop through the bottom of the pot.

I was going to leave them in their pots and plant out next Spring? Any advice would be appreciated as I'm so pleased with them

I've been following the Nigel threads, I do genuinely have to ask what is the good news?
