Daffodils sprouting

I remember when there where daffodil fields in Cornwall. Now mostly on Scilly.

I am very pleased to hear that others have problems with cyclamen, i put them in, the buds open that are on them, then thats it.

I do buy outdoor types.

I dug out the corms last year and potted them up this year, only 3 are growing though.

My galanthias are from seeds that i pinched off a plant, they didnt make the size to plant out this year, but will have lots for next. You get lots of seed from just one berry

The cold winter will slow them down a bit, if you are worried, you could put some more soil on top. Did you plant them a good depth in the ground.?

I have just had a fantasic package for J Parkers. A pack of 3 assorted astrantia, there was 12 bare roots in the bags, so not bad for 4.49. There were 9 bare root phlox, so big they went into 7 inch pots. 2 bare root euonymus red cascade, 1.99 each, both shooting. Some other things, all very good, cant remember now, 6 asters, already in pots and more, all super value.

I only buy when their plants are in the sale, my acer, planted last spring, already 4ft tall and only 1.99 was good value.

What to do with nerine bulbs just received

If you put them outside now they will die. They love hot and dry, they wont get that in the winter in open ground.

Pot them up, keep completely dry dont water until they start to shoot.

I only put mine out, in their pots, when the weather is really warm, no rain, when they start to flower, i bring them in the conservatory, where they will bloom for ages.

We have grown these in this way for 20 years, thinning them out every 4 or 5 years when they really are looking silly pot bound.

We still have the same ones. So a really good buy if you look after them well.
