Bulbs in containers

Hi. Yes, go for the hardy bulbs-that way you do stand a chance of them coming up every year. It really is a case of you only get out what you put in, so if you feed them, they should give you several years of good displays.

I also had a go at this, and it does look good. What do you plan to do with the bulbs when they have died down? If you leave your bulbs in the containers, deadhead the flowers, but leave all the leaves to die down naturally. Give the bulbs a feed with Tomorite to give the bulbs a boost for the next years growth. I usually take off the dead leaves and top up with fresh compost for the next year.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Took some cuttings from my Dahlias, topped up the compost on my Taters! Also decided that I want to grow some Melons in the Greenhouse, so sowed some Canteloupe seeds....fingers crossed!

55 varieties Hostafan?? Blimey, no wonder you have that name!!I've got threePotted up 2 Peonies from Sarah Raven sale-nice specimens, then potted up the Fuchias from the T&M offer. Again, really nice specimens. Mowed and fed the lawn, then wandered around marvelling at how everything is growing.
