Help...Pompom Primula

Posted: 14/03/2013 at 20:52
Just wondering if your prims have grown as they should now, mine are just popping up with stalks now, they will be better when we have some more warm sun. Have you got the lilac coloured ones?

Posted: 14/03/2013 at 14:59
I seen to remember when I bought my agapanthus that they were bare roots, am I muddling them up with something else, whatever they were they are in a tub, overwintered in the greehhouse and have never bloomed.

Hellebore flowers

Mine went the same but the plants will recover, the flowers already out won't, I don't think, leave them for a while and see, then cut them off if they don't. That is what I am going to do.
My daff s were hanging but they have all stood up today, it's amazing how they cope, nature is hard.

Building a brick base for a greenhouse

Posted: 13/03/2013 at 23:03
We have our tomato greenhouse up on breeze blocks or concrete blocks, it gives extra height for the tomato plants to grow. They have been there for 26 years and are perfect. The only problem is that I can't reach the roof window, I have a little stool in there.
Everything is a bodge up here, all diy, one greenhouse is screwed down on paving slabs, didn't take a minute to put down.

How tidy is your garden?

Sue, I think you have the right to saw any bits off that are on your side, but you have to give it back to the owner.

Gosh! I was a grave digger in a previous life, I will never get out of the habit of digging holes.

Hey bob, would it be less work to just pour deisel down on the roots, I think 8ft is a bit high for residential areas, also, I am not sure if he has a right to come in and cut them?

Little Treasures

I like heligan, they have a good collection of hellebores, I went there at the end of February as they have a hellebore week.
They sell them but they are a bit pricey, nice though if you want a little bit of heligan in your garden.
