Overwintering daffodil bulbs

Posted: 18/01/2015 at 00:26

I dont like them growing in the grass, by the time the green has died down the grass is knee high, then when you mow it, its yellowy white for ages. Ifs ok if you have a meadow or orchard but not in the  lawn.

Thank you Nut, I did get them a couple of days ago and sent you a PM, they are lovely and one is out in flower now.

My PM's are playing up, deleted a few and the lot went so maybe it didnt get to you, so sorry, I have your seeds ready and will dig the bulbs and Pulmanaria probably Monday if we dont get anymore snow.

When to plant out...

There is far too much faffing around these days, too much on the market to get you to spend your money.

 The most I ever use is chicken pellets and homemade compost for mulch. Nothing wrong with my garden.

I know certain plants dont grow well here, being 960ft above, and always windy, but I plant what I like and it takes it chance. Roses are not brilliant, the air is to clean and pure, so they say anyway!

Stick them in a pot about 4inches deep, probably wont grow now, but whats to lose,  its only a bit of compost. Give it a try.

I have never seen a strawberry plant tuber, they are usually roots, either attached to the mother plant or bare rooted fron GC or nursery.  Can you take a photo. Click on the tree icon and follow insructions.
