Depth advice

Posted: 30/10/2013 at 21:07

I tend to go with at least twice the size of the bulbs. I have planted crocus/grape hyacinths deeper than that and they always seem to find there way through.

I think with the larger bulbs the deeper the better as I regualary disturb a lot of the smaller ones, I just chuck those ones back in

Great pics Bill, as others have said when it snows in the Uk, we don't seem to be anywhere prepared and the whole country seems to descend into chaos. I don't like it much but it does look beautiful

Hard plants to grow from seed

Posted: 30/10/2013 at 20:43

I always have trouble with delphs and larkspurs, don't think I've ever got a delph seed to germinate, not sure why? 

I grew verbena boneralis this year for the first time and they took an age to germinate, I put them in the fridge, out of the fridge, when I finally ignored them, they did well

hydrangea.when can i move it?

No way an expert, but I'd move it now as the soil is still warm and gives the plant a chance of getting some new roots established before the winter comes in.

getting those plants in before the storm

I'm sure they will come through flowering rose, I love wallflowers, they are so easy to grow from seed. I think you tend to get better plants grown this way. The great thing is that you can collect seeds off them next year and grow some more for free

Sweet Pea germination

I'd say a few weeks at this time of year
