bulbs dieing back for next year

Posted: 25/04/2015 at 09:58

Yes Sanjy, put them anywhere to die down. If you have any old containers yo can stick them behind the shed or garage. As long as you leave the soil round them.

Tulips are never so good next year but you can plant them in the garden in November, you may get some up, and if you are really keen you can pot up all the little bulblets and bring them on for flowering in about 3 years time.

I think in the garden is best but there are some dwarf varieties for tubs.

They dont like cold, I have just sowed seeds now and wont plant them out until end of May at least.

I use my Tesco vouchers, only about 15.00 worth of vouchers per year! So the mag was free. I dont buy or subscribe any more, I look back over the past years mags and find so much contradiction, I was only buying for the pictures. Even contradictions in the same mag by two different gardeners!

Have they found a Cure for Busy Lizzies's Yet?

They havent, but there are Busy Lizzie that dont succumb to it, dont buy any that are called Walleriana. Try New Guinea they will be fine.

Blight free or blight resistant?

What can I put in a tub with sunflowers?

You could fix a rope to come out of your upstairs bedroom window to support them, they are hungry plants I always think the very tall ones are better in the ground, and the dwarf ones in pots.
