Alliums In A Pot

Those photos were taken a couple of years ago, I forgot to sow my sunflowers this year. All of those plants are in pots, apart from the lavender in the foreground of the second photo.

That could work, or just compress them as much as you can. Personally id cover mine, but I guess other don't?

Shame you couldn't get to Chatsworth Show, the weather was perfect for it. We went but didn't get there until 1pm. We stayed right to the end were the traffic queues leaving the event were horrendous.

I live only minutes from Renishaw Hall, but have only been once many years ago. I really ought to visit again.

Ive always done it in bags, but I'm in the process of building a new 3 bay compost with an added section for leaves, like yours mine will be chicken mesh sides.

You could always run the lawn mower over them first, that way you can get more leaves into your leaf store, and they will rot down faster. Keep them damp.

nutcutlet, id like to join you please. The weather might be a contributory factor though as I shall be on my motorbike. If the weather is mostly dry then I should be ok for this, and travelling from Sheffield I intend to take in the National Memorial Arboretum en-route. Ive put this in my diary, and shall keep an eye on this thread.

Where are we ordering our summer bulbs from?

Where are we ordering our bulbs from for next year? 

I've used various online suppliers over the years for tulips, daffs & alliums, and I'm yet to settle for any one single supplier. Anywhere online doing any good deals?

Alliums In A Pot

I have alliums in pots on my patio every year, plant the bulbs into pots on the patio in autumn, and left on the patio over winter, and they have always performed well.
