Moving Bulbs

Yes, I moved some grape hycaniths out of pots and into the garden a couple weeks ago. They were just coming into flower at the time.

Having a go at a cut flower patch...

Woo I have trouble getting larkspur to germinate as well. Not ever heard of giving the seeds a chill so will try that as well.

So lovely to be able to enjoy the garden in the house. I've got some cosmos, cornflowers just popping up. Rudebekias make a lovely cut flower too.

I'm growing Statice again as well, easy to grow and quite chunky, lasts well in a vase and you can dry it as well.

The plant may go into a bit of shock if it was actively growing. I got mine off a lady who split the plant when it was dormant in Autumn I think. I'd give it a good drink, I'd say that it will survive just might not be at it's best this year

Watching seedlings grow

Seeds have started to germinate  got plenty of white cosmos, statice, sweet pea and some cornflowers. Sowed a lot later than I have done in the past so interested to see how things come on

Anyone done any gardening today?

Pinching out

Posted: 14/04/2015 at 20:42

Don't think it would do any harm, I'd expect them to get a bushier. Don't think I've ever pinched out Cosmos. Maybe do a couple and see what happens?

Wallflowers

Beautiful wallflowers Matty, fab colours, do you remember the name of them? I've only tried cuttings on the Bowles Mauve type but I guess it's the same.

I grew some Cloth of Gold one year and they did flower well in their second year
