Planting Tulips now or later

Posted: 20/09/2012 at 16:46

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

Posted: 28/07/2012 at 15:52

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.

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

Help with chilli plant growing

I always use liquid tomato food for my chilies and peppers. For yours then about 12 ml to a ltr of water should be about right. You can use the excess to feed other plants. I feed mine once a week. Good luck.

I always sow in the autumn and am picking the first lot of flowers now. I sow in late winter/early spring too 'tho and this gives me flowers right through to autumn.
