Is it just me?

They will be in the garden as well as the pots, they will completely ruin Heucheras and outdoor fuchsias.

Sounds like the new bottles are rubbish, I wilk be cutting the whole top off and covering with a bit of tin foil.

Dorris, if you tap on the little cog wheel symbol nest to the space bar, you can turn the predictive text off.

Anyone able to identify this plant?

Not a waste of time if you are careful and get all the bulbs out, like ground elder, this garden was covered in both 4 years ago, hardly any now.

Thanks I will keep them chopped then. Never grown the dwarf ones before.

I have just tried mine, is yours like this?

No way could I press and turn as is stated on the lid, I put a knife under the top bit of lid where it says press and turn, thats between the tiny thin strip, then cut the tiny red strip off and voila!! It opens like any other bottle,

I hate it, I spend hours just digging every tiny bulb up.

Cosmos seedlings

 They are good, but the bees cant get in until they have opened up quite a lot. You do need to regularly deadhead as I don't think there were so many flowers on them as the common ones.

Last year I got my cosmos up to about 5ft, on tree trunks and as soon as they flowered we had strong winds and broke them down, this year I am only growing dwarf ones, courtesy of the seed swap thread.

We could all do with borrowing HF's OH. I take it that you will be making tea and coffee all day then !

I can hardly get to my washing machine for plants at the moment, I love it when they all go out and I can give the conservatory a good scrub out. Its black from damp in through the winter. Looks like another good day, got loads to do, but did finish all the hydrangeas yesterday.
