Talkback: Growing woodland anemones

Posted: 15/04/2012 at 04:58
I saw the lovely white anenome at a local garden centre but it was growing in the ground as they have extensive gardens, I asked where I could find said plant to buy, ofcourse they couldn't help so I suggested that they dug a tiny piece up for me to purchase but to no avail, I have still only got anenome blanda.

What a lot of people don't know about Lily beatles is when you try to pick them off the plant they very cleverly drop onto their backs so that the red is hidden in the earth but there is a plan, a sheet of white paper placed below the plant so that if they think they've got away, they haven't they are shown up by the white background, don't you just love out smarting the little blighters.

Dear Richard Jones, wouldn't we all love the safety of this dear little creature our own native squirrel but nothing is being done about the grey perril wich causes so much damage to everything from trees to bulbs and bird feeders, they ensconce themselves in our roofs and not to mention that they are the reason for the demise of our squirrel nutkin.

Dear Kate, I love your water story, I have a half barrel water garden, I have a small Waterlily in it and an Iris but seems as though I should fill some more pots, Oh! and the birds like drinking from it along with other creatures. hope you are enjoying your garden after your travels.

Talkback: Caring for naturalised bulbs

Posted: 06/03/2012 at 03:15
Dear Pippa, will you have to wait until the bulbs have been lifted and devided to find out whether the blind bulbs have responded to feeding, would you have to mark them to follow their progress, will they be good next year or is it the long wait. Kay

Dear Adam, how can I stop ground elder creeping across from next doors garden, at the moment I have it covered with cardboard to exclude the light but it's not a long term solution. Kay from surrey

I am always intregued by new things even though it takes me some time to get into them, I don't really know what I think of this new format as I haven't found my way around everything but I love Gardeners World so I will have to try this new format.
