Any in Surrey please 4711, did not have much luck on the internet search. I think the prices charged by retailers are daylight robbery. Thanks.

Hi George, pick them while in bud and hang them in an airy, dry shed or garage. Enjoy.

Soil or Compost??

Posted: 06/09/2012 at 08:12

Hi Mrs M, I have been growing veggies in large containers for a few years now in homemade compost boosted up with fertiliser and done well(expect this year.) They include corgettes, spinach,cabbage, rubarb, beans,tomatoes, chilli, early potatoes,gooseberries etc. I make sure that they are well watered. With bought compost varying in quality and being pricey I didn't thing it would be worthwhile. So do have a go, it will work out slightly cheaper, you'll crop fresh produce and really taste the difference.

Talkback: How to deadhead lilies

Posted: 03/09/2012 at 09:04

Hi, lillies are very forgiving and will shoot up in spring despite neglect(thank the Lord!)

I grow them in large pots on the patio purely to control the slugs and snails and also so I can enjoy them from the house in bad weather. I just wish I could control the dreaded lily beetle! I generally leave the stalks and leaves till they die down as I hope the bulbs will benefit. I give them a slow release feed in the spring and have never been disappointed. So chill, you'll have real beauties next year. They do not need any protection in winter(I am in the SE) although, occasionally I do top up the pots with spent compost.

Behave yourselves, Chris9 & break23.....what are you like? Still, you make me smile........are your middle names "devil's advocate" eh?

Try to pick on Beechwood Gardens....they are so straight laced. Besides, there is something to be said for a self efacing guy who has a conversation with a dog!! Enjoy.

HI, bay are pretty easy and pest and disease free. I had two standards too and lost one of them.I would put down to to the very wet weather. They do not like soggy conditions. I do shed some leaves in the autumn so I suggest you perservere and it will perkup in the spring.
