Allium bulbs

Posted: 18/03/2015 at 15:15

Try just putting a layer of sand in the gound and lay them on that, you want them fairly deep a good 4/5 inches as when they grow they can fall over if shallow planted.

Instead of buying seeds you can choose one from the supermarket, wash the seeds and plant straight away.

I did this last year with a gorgous little cherry tomato, all came true from seeds.

I would do as Fidget, as long as the pots are outside and you dont forget to water them, they can be potted on again and by September be well big enough to see.

I would just leave them in the ground, you wont get flowers this year but they will grow some green leaves and that will feed the bulbs for next year.

Of course, you can pot them up if you want, but then you have to look after them, watering etc, they take care of themselves in the garden.

Anyone had any luck with those white aconitum seeds I swapped? 

I havent any germinated so far.

Narrow Border - Help please?

Ooh! Lovely, thats what we call a blank canvas, is there a chance you would be allowed to dig another foot out. 2ft would make a lovely border?

You have lovely fences making it good and private, you're off to a good start. Some sweet peas would be lovely if you could tack some bean support mesh to the fence.

Unless you have a very warm heated greenhouse they wont germinate at the temps we have been having. I havent even put my grown seedlings out there yet.

There's plenty of time to sow some more, put them in your kitchen, or bedroom where there is a little warmth, they will be up in a week.

You cant request the Lizzie, not just when you want them. They tell you when there is one free. 

I can cope with the nights, As lot of you know, I dont sleep much anyway, all I need is one person to help me wash and cream her and change a little inco sheet.

Never mind, heard on the news today that although they cant pay for anymore carers or nursing staff, the NHS want to give obese people free flu jabs. That will be a good thing, they will have more money to spend on takeaways and junkfood.

Rant over, I'll get my coat.


Unwanted pond!

My daughters garden is full of frogs, never had a pond!

She finds the spawn all over the place and puts it in the babies sand pit. Well, she cant leave it in the outside loo!!!!
