I've never tried but now I've seen them, I want some, just looked at the seeds, cheap and easy so will have a go, come back this time next year, I'll let you know๐Ÿ˜€

Confusion in understanding growing instructions

Posted: 23/06/2017 at 19:00

I have absolutely no faith in anything the RHS site recommends, caught them out several times, as Firefly has found out. 

I lost confidence in them when they said, on a TV programme that they never move or plant their snowdrops 'in the green' when I put that on this site everyone jumped on me.  I'm not sure if they even say that on their web site.

thanks Dove, that's what I get, little blank square,  thought I'd be clever and take screen shots of some plants close up for ID, then couldn't post them๐Ÿ˜€

is the photo facility working today or is it just me, never usually have a problem.

Desired or going on a green bin journey?

The last ones are just weeds.

This is  another reason why I like to grow all seeds in pots and trays, you know what you've got right from the start.

Unknown rapid growing exotic plant

Posted: 23/06/2017 at 16:05

It hasn't got leaves like a Ginger Lily.

I've taken close ups but they won't load. 

How do i trim this back?

Can you take a more close up pic, I can see it's a variegated leaf, did it have flowers? 


Posted: 23/06/2017 at 12:50

That's very good, can we see yours๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for that Pete, I can never find one that trails like Tumblina or Surfinia. 

If you can find some in the GC you can chop them right back, plant out give a really really good watering, no good just wetting the top of the compost, they may well make a good second show.
