I bough those from Parkers as well, bag of 50 and I had a spare. I started them of in deep seed trays, they were meat containers, then when I saw they had all taken, I potted them in 5 inch flower pots, i want them in pots, not in the garden, but a lot of people do plant out.  I wouldnt put mine out yet, bit cold

I did soak them first.

Me too, mrs garden!. Seems like it could be a bit off putting to new gardeners, forever in fear of getting it wrong, I love the trial and error method, it works for me, I have a real variation of plants all growing side by side.

A differnt Q about Lily Beetle...

Posted: 25/03/2014 at 13:00

I have never had lily beetles but when i tipped my lil

y troughs out to put some fresh soil in, I had never seen so many vine weevil grubs. I had to resort to a liquid killer, birds had a good feast first though.


Its funny that i can handle any insects, spiders, moths, snails but i just cannot touch those!.

Aubrieta and fuschia

I would keep the fuchsia in a cool place, not heated, although it is a hardy one and cant go out just yet because its young, it still wont like heat or sun on it.

Local boot fairs are probably best. If you advertise on the net you dont know who will be calling. Some genuine buyers but you never can tell.

To re-turf a garden can you just lay turf on top?
