I don't think there will many people here that could advise on growing conditions in India, go green. Ours here are ready for harvesting, so ??e can't compare ours with yours. Do you have a website that could help with growing in your country?

composting question

Posted: 07/09/2015 at 18:57

Never put cooked food in the compost, I don't put in perennial weeds like ground elder and buttercups but you can put just the green in, not in flower.

i wouldn't put leaves and grass in the same bin.

They do grow very easily from seed, Hostafan sent me 10 seeds, they all germinated this Spring and are now flowering, they do need to go brown and dry though as Nut says.

mine are still in the ground, I haven't thought yet what to do with them, my daughter leaves hers in and just piles a load of mulch over them.

Strange thing to do Jo, you can always get the previous offer which were crocus. I don't want those alliums they are offering now.

Help needed!

I'm having trouble posting today from an ipad. If I need to make any corrections the message box stops responding. Seems OK if I just type from beginning to end but freezes up if I try and make corrections. 

I am having the same problem on another forum Daryl, this could be an iPad problem as it never happens on the laptop.

When they start growing next Spring, you can cut shoots off with a bit of the tuber and pot up.
