......the good guys

I ordered several kg of bulbs from J. Parkers Wholesale last autumn and am absolutely delighted with the results.


In flower at the moment are 25kg of Narcissus Cheerfulness White and Yellow, 100 Tahiti,  Tulips, 100 Jenny, Stunning blooms, (almost ready to flower) 100 Esperanto 100 Saigon and 100 Tulip Virdiflora Artist  and 100 Slawa, Just going over are the Hyacinth Miss Saigon and Gypsy Queen. It certainly was a lot of bulbs but I shared with my daughter. 


I would have no hesitation at all recommending them and will definitely use them again.

I suggest you have a read of this RHS article which contains advice on camellis in general plus growing them in containers - https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=327

It's Magnolia the poster is growing Obelixx. 


I think it will depend on how big the container is and what variety of Magnolia you've got.

I think it will depend on the variety of Magnolia you are growing as well as how big the container is matthewbramley, Here is a link with some advice about growing both in the ground and in containers.

I've done both, lifted some and left others. It just depends on how much rain we get rather than anything else, they do sometimes just rot in the ground. Lifting them does mean I can bring them on earlier the following late winter or early spring.

Totally agree about the weather being a waste of time. It's not detailed enough for each place to make a proper difference, time could be used with gardening tips instead. Also, so may people either record the programme or watch it on iplayer at a later date so whatever benefit there might have been had has already gone.

Is there an up to date thread about GW with comments about the current programmes?

Compost review

I too have been using Jacks Magic for years now on the recommendation of my daughter. I think it's one of the best I've ever used. For any permanent planting in containers it is in my opinion, the one to go for.  I've also found that My Dahlia and Begonia do best when planted into it as well.

I've had both Limelight and Grandiflora in containers for a number of years now and they flower beautifully. I cut them right back to within 30cm or so. But toward the end of the month rather than now. Good luck.
