Do you mean hotter as in tropical plants, or hotter as in bold, bright colours. I had a thing last year for deep orange flowers, planted with lots of blues and bright deep pinks. I loved it and so did folks passing by.
Fairy, l think you should go for it and buy yourself some. How lucky you are to have a new border to plan and plant. I need to have a good lift and divide this year, pot some plants up for a charity plant sale l support. Make a bit of space for the annuals l can't resist growing.
I don't have any spare wall to tuck them against, l have a lot of agapanthus tucked in snuggly. I've a small plastic greenhouse, l could maybe fit them in there for the winter. We get a lot of rain down here. Thanks for the advice Fairy girl.
Oh what a cutie, congratulations to you all. I bet his big sisters adore him and love to help. Enjoy these years, they grow so quickly.
Oh what a numpty l am, try 18cm circumference, sorry late night. I'm in Devon, but at the bottom of a valley so a bit of a frost pocket even though back garden is south facing. I'll over winter them in the spare room. I think I'll mix JI and MPC with grit and then renew the soil yearly in early spring.😁
Hi all, I've had a lovely gift of three 18cm dia Eucomis bulbs, and l need some advice on what to do with them. The planting information given on the pack is minimal. Planting depth says 15 cm deep, does that mean base of bulb that deep or bulb tip. Soil type, I've got John Innis No3, would that be preferable to MPC, l can add grit for extra drainage. Would all three bulbs be able to share a 45 cm pot and have enough space to thrive. I've not seen these plants in the flesh so have no idea how leafy or tall they can become. Sorry if questions seem to have obvious answers, but they were from a good pal and l don't want to do the wrong thing with them, so thought I'd ask you guys with experience of them. 😀
Oh MU, I'm so very sorry for your loss. What a lovely cat Max was.
