Hi - am surprised that no-one has mentioned here that you can eat Hemerocallis! Apparently the whole plant can be eaten but I've only tried the flower which I enjoyed - maybe one way to keep the beds down!!!

Hi  - I live in Jersey & over 3 years got just one flower - gave up this year!!!

I read somewhere on the internet that they get baked in the summer in their natural habitat so I placed a cloche over the pot for the summer which was when I got the one flower.

Good luck with it

Hi - I live in Jersey & have had a large Myrtle which flowered from July to the end of October every year. Looked like it was covered in snow, very pretty but the snow & south westerly high winds in 2012 knocked it down completely. Lucky for me it did have seedlings & one has taken it's place. This time I think I'll contain the height to keep it from the winds...hopefully!

It does have a perfume but seems not to flower when small. Mine is in the garden & there it shoots up quite quickly. Am waiting to see if it flowers this year.

It started out in a semi shady northwest/northeast aspect but once it cleared the fence it was in a sunnier southwest position. There are a lot of trees surrounding my place. 

Hope you find this helpful to you?

Hi - having just received the email from Gardeners' World I find I cannot get the link to the Climbers & the Alpines to work - the Gallery works, so presume the links are faulty? 

Anyone else experiencing the same problems?

Hi - my fence faces northwest but gets the sun for an hour or so early morning this time of the year before the trees opposite get their leaves on.

I'm looking for a small (2-3ft w & h) plant, flowering mid to late summer with either yellow, white or pale coloured flowers which will stand out on this shady side.

The ground is fairly moist & I seem to grow most plants so think my soil must be fairly neutral/slightly acid.

Would appreciate any help.

Thanks

Jennie

Hi - I seem to have an infestation of the above critters, they're just like sand hoppers only brown & they're all tucked in under pots etc. Having been on the internet I see they're not insects but crustaceans from OZ? I believe they must have been introduced with a plant/s but have got to silly amounts now & I want to know how to get rid of them. My neighbours do not have any.

I used RAID the fly spray on them the other day which worked but nearly caused me to expire with the smell!

Has anyone else got these pests & safely got rid of them & do they cause any damage in the garden?

As they jump about so much it's difficult to photograph!

Regards

Jennie
