As you have got this picture off the net, can we assume its your company, and you are selling them?

Still frozen solid here Nut, I was going to dig your plants today, but will leave it for a bit. Yours are flowering that you sent me, beautiful! thank you.

Panda, do take care, don't ignore any symptoms where your head is concerned. You cant be too careful.

Some very good advise above, I cant add much to that, I started my garden from scratch in 2012, its amazing how it takes off with some time and effort.

It doesnt need to be expensive, the most money I spent is on seed and potting compost. Everything else is cuttings, seeds, bare root plant etc, usually scrounged or swapped. Have a look at the vegetable or seed swap threads on here.

I really must say that for a 17 year old you are doing remarkably well, your post is very well written, I have seen some terrible posts on forums, spelling, etc. So well done you and I hope you make a success of your project.

Ask any questions as you go along and as they crop up. Please keep us posted, we love new ventures and if you can add some before and after piccys, so much the better.

Lyn, those bulbs will probably need a year of growing in fertile soil to produce flowers again, after having only had water to nourish them for this year.   Please, Joyce Goldenlily, put a photo up when they are looking good.   And make sure your friend sees them!

That is what I thought, isnt that the same with all daffs, heel them in till the green dies down for the year, then they flower again, I didnt know they took 3 to 4 years to flower again.

I am the same Welsh, blimey, if we took on board everything that was chucked at us these days we wouldnt move from our house. 

Theres not a day goes by when there isnt something in the papers or on TV that will harm us, food, plants etc, the media is making us all a load of nervous wrecks.

I grew Tagettes along with my tomatoes last year,  I read somewhere it was good, only to get so many white fly on them that of course got onto the tomato plants, never done it before and will never do it again.
