Lilies

Did you know that you can get "TREE LILLIES " These flower for quite a while longer than others they easily grow to 6ft tall - my friend grows these . the bulbs themseves are quite expensive compared to some others but well worth it . 

I myself are always looking for a bargain . This year 4-6 weeks ago the very large garden center were selling bags of lillies off for £1 , some had started growing , it was a good chance to try out diiferant ones . I even planted the bits that had broke off - admitted they werent in tip top condition and I had no idea what I was buying . 

up to now I have several differant ones - turks turban  is one but for the others I will have to wait and see !

They will be differant to what I have already I know for sure as the leaves are quite a mixture. 

Their are bargains out there if you check round , so bear this in mind for next yearrr

The bigger places , once the main selling bout is over they just want to get shut of them  to get the next lot of things on the shelves. 

Dont know if your near but I am in south yorkshire , I shop at Brigg Garden center  (BRIGG ) there are others in this range  in other parts of the country . let me know if i can help .

SNOW IN SUMMER

Posted: 04/07/2013 at 18:52

For the last 2 years I have on my rockery "snow in summer"  I dont know it by any other name, It has been lovely this year but now almost finished its looking untidy ,

What I am asking is : Can I trim it off and so long as I leave  about 2 inch from the ground , will it come again next year ? or should I leave well alone?

Plant ID help needed please!

 Wow ! that was Quick ! Now that I can enlarge the photo  dont look like raspberry to me  , They look more like saplings from an apple tree . But I could be wrong . It will be intresting to see what others think.

Plant ID help needed please!
