Instructions from start to finish on foxglove flowers

Posted: 05/06/2012 at 01:04

Unfortunately there aren't any seeds for you to collect unless the plants have flowered and then set seed themselves, which it is most probably too early for.

Can you identify this Dahlia?

It's not a Bishop of Llandaff as the leaves on them are usually very dark green with a redish hue. Sadly I can't be any more use than that.

Not one of my favourite plants as they can get very big very quickly, but then I've always had quite a small garden.

If you go for the pot option, like said above, you'll need to have quite a large one.

What a tough question!

I love salvias, but I couldn't even give you my top 5 of them!

Autumn sown sweet peas

Posted: 04/06/2012 at 01:00

Yeah, my sweet peas were sown in Feb last year but were still flowering on Christmas Day last year, only the really heavy snow killed them off, some time in January.

I'm hoping the seeds I took off the plant are going to be just as nice. I will also sow some this autumn as I absolutely love sweet peas.

They are lovely Cath!

I started mine in early March and they're not a patch on yours, although they have really enjoyed the recent warm weather. This year I'm trying to grow mine up an old oak tree stump as well as in patches in the garden.

I emailed T&M on Friday and got a response this afternoon, they said delivery of them was due in the next 7-14 days. So it's time to start making room for them!

Thanks Pam, where do I over winter the cuttings? Would it have to be indoors or would a cold frame do the job?

I wouldn't worry about that, there are few, if any, gardeners who enjoy throwing plants away just because they have too many. More likely is they pass 'extras' on to family and friends or swap plants.

I've dug up two new flower beds which used to be lawn so that I know I have enough space for new plants, I also do my in-laws garden so any that don't fit in here will be making the trip there.

I'm also thinking of digging up another patch for the 36 lavenders on offer next month.

Talkback: Growing Verbena bonariensis from seed

Posted: 15/05/2012 at 01:21

I have a load of these in a seed tray from last years plant, but they've stayed tiny since about easter. Am I being an idiot leaving them where they are (no protection from the elements and slight protection from mice/slugs/snails) and should I move them somewhere much nicer?

Think I've answered my own question actually...
