Good luck

Reluctant dahlia

Funnily enough I've been trying for weeks to get my Mels Orange Marmalade ( a great Dahlia by the way ) to shoot and just this week it has started. I've had mine for a few years growing in a pot out in the garden and then overwintered inside.  Hang in there with it and fingers crossed.

Should I separate Ageratum ( Blue Mink)?

I once heard one of the garden experts say that you should keep you seedlings in the same area that they were before you pricked them out, for a few days instead of putting them out in the potting shed immediately after pricking out, keeping them in the same place, helps them settle in better. 

Is this a weed?

Yes it's a weed, should be easy enough to remove, the roots are fine and white.

Swallows - Anyone seen them yet?

Posted: 01/05/2017 at 07:13

Yes I saw some the week before Easter. I was visiting Republic of Ireland, a place called Carlow, out in the country. They were swooping over the side and front gardens and I too thought I was wrong when I first saw them. I was lucky enough to see them a few of the days and was'nt very far from them so I knew there was no mistake. I was delighted.

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.

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.
