Greenjude thanks for the tips. I have to say last years Wallflowers are looking great at the moment, so leafy and healthy. I'm so glad I did'nt chuck them all when they were finished.

I always grow plugs on for a bit before planting out but others might do something different. For me the plants I plant out need to be a decent size with a good root system otherwise they get swamped.

Good thread Lilylouise, I just planted out my Wallflower plugs that I'd grown on this week. I grew them last year from seed and they gave a wonderful display. Some of them have survived in the borders and one lot even now has buds but I'm thinking they won't come to much now it's gotten so cold.

Greenjude it's good to know they do well in pots because I've put some into pots this year as they'd get swamped in the parts of the border where I want them. I'm hoping I can set the pots into the borders or plant them out properly in springtime.


Planting Tulips now or later

I live in Northern Ireland and always plant both my Tulips, Crocus and Daffs in September or October, I have done for years and years. Perhaps because our temperature is often a good deal lower than other parts of the UK I've never had Tulip fire or indeed any problems at all with my Tulip bulbs and flowers.

It's really good to know you can cut these wonderful flowers. I've grown them for years but never thought of cutting them. I'll be snipping this evening.

My cuttings!

Wonderful as always, no wonder you win so many awards.

I grow these too and can't imagine what has happened to yours. Were the torn bits all laying around it then? Could it have been a cat?

T&M offer July Lavender

For ages I did'nt buy from T&M because of various problems but I sent off for the Lavender too. They arrived a couple of weeks ago and were in similar condition as yours, I was surprised and delighted. They're potted on and growing on well already in a mix of Perlite and MP Compost.

Thanks so much Sotongeoff.

philadelphus virginal

That's a good link Alina. My Philadelphus took about 4-5 years before it started flowering.
