Too late to plant Tulip/Daff bulbs?

Posted: 16/03/2013 at 13:43

Thought I'd update this thread. The daff & tulip bulbs I planted in pots in January are just beginning to show through the soil. They are about 2-3 weeks behind the identical bulbs I planted last autumn. Im glad I planted them now, just hope they flower.

Thanks for everyones help

Tomato Growpots, any good?

I just wonder why good they can be if they are clearing them out?

I see The Greenhouse People are selling off their Growpots. Has anyone tried these? Are they any good?

Crab apple is an excellent choice. Or perhaps go for an eating apple tree on a small rootstock?

Sunflower recommendation?

Potted Hydrangea

I think the colour of the flower is determined by the acid/alkaline soil. But im not sure if this affects all hydrangea plants?

Its called ArtStudio available for iPad & iPhone. I have the free version on my iPhone but the paid version must have more features? The free version allows you to sketch as Joe did.

Susan Bradley, I think the iPad app that Joe was using is called art studio.

discodave, thanks. The first thing I did when moving into the house (and before unpacking) was get rid of the narrow borders & straight edges of the lawn. Instead I gave the lawn some curved edges which helped make the borders deper.

I did grow dahlias in pots that year, and I might try doing the same again this year.
