Heated Propagators

Posted: 25/03/2014 at 18:37

i've found using a heated propagator for streptocarpus cuttings much better than without, and it's a massive relief if i forget to sow seeds and need them to catch up with the rest. 

saffron crocus failing?

well I've had absolutely nothing from them! Wanted to grow them for the saffron for myself but found that calendula is quite similar in taste and smell and much easier to grow!

I shall give them to my granny who lives further south and see what she can do with them

Help with identifying plant by smell.

I'm not sure if the foliage is about now, but last year i thought i had a cannabis plant growing in a pot it was really pungent and, naturally, i was curious and left it to grow and It turned out to be a Cleome.

The link below regards cats and the law..


.. and for anybody unsure about this, how about a lawyers perspective..

Nobody is saying it is ideal, its just the law, a fact of life.

Wow, cotty1000 maybe we should, what with all the crap on the pavements, push to have house dogs, but no, that would be cruel, dogs need exercise and cats are no different.

As for the overall debate, get a grip people. I have cats and i live in a highly populated area of cats (next door has 9) and have never put my hand in crap, it's just a matter of being vigilant. It's really not difficult. It's one thing to express an opinion and another to encourage people to break the law and poison animals as clarington suggests!

Anti-freeze? Ffs!

saffron crocus failing?

Posted: 02/03/2013 at 11:12

I've got 60 bulbs of saffron crocus in my back garden in pots with a gravel top layer. foliage is plentyful and they look in great condition. the problem I'm having is flowering.  I had about 10-15 flowers early december then I persume it became too cold, but should they not be flowering again now? Has anybody had a similar problem? Or can anybody offer some advice or info about what is going on?

Thank you kindly in advance.


Extra info. Bulbs purchesed from suttons.
