Hi - I have lived in this house for 12 years and over the past few years the bulbs - planted by the previous owner a keen gardener have failed to flower- they could be quite old- should I pull them - move them save them ? Help would be appreciated Thank you

Now to give you a proper answer-I am guessing these are daffodils and such like?

If they haven't flowered for a number of years -it means they are probably overcrowded and need lifting splitting and replanting-you could do that now with the leaves intact-do not remove those let them die back naturally and add some nourishment to the soil

With luck they should flower again next year

With the top of the tuber just above the surface -they dont need to be too deep-not crucial

It will work-but why not just dig down a bit and cut off the leaves?-say a foot or so ??

In time you will weaken the bulb and it will give up

Is it safe to plant Busy Lizzies this year, until three years ago when they all died within a week, because of a desease affecting them, i used to have lovely pots of them. Now i can't find out if it is now safe to plant them again.

They do not seem to be on sale in the usual big outets again this year but are still available by mail order

If you are raising your own it just depends if the downy mildew returns.

If you follow the instructions it works-unfortunately people thing a litttle bit more-or a lot more- will work quicker and wont to any harm-fatal mistake that scorches the grass -it wont kill it but it will take time to recover

If you have a big area -invest in a spreader for even distribution-makes life easier

Sweet peas in conservatory?

Fraid so-it will be too warm-they need to grow outside or they will just be soft green plants with no urge to flower

There are plants for growing inside and outside -but they dont all work in both locations

 

Are these edible?

Depends if you want to take a chance-I wouldn't -because I didn't plant it

I hope you like hospital food just in case

Absolutely agree 100% with the last post-there is a lot of mis-information out there-I wonder where Jennifer you obtained the info about toxicity??

Also on a side-note I assume you have had this condition checked out and it is the grass or whatever causing it-it sounds as though living a normal outdoor life is difficult?
