climbing rose problem

Have you pulled the growing stems right down and tied them in?.

This will stimulate lots of new growth along the stems.

Problems with Freesia bulbs not growing

They should be planted near the surface, tips of bulb only just barely covered. Keep in greenhouse or conservatory.

Swet william in my garden has gone mad, this is its third year and taking over, I have pulled some out but I feel sorry for it becuse it is full of buds.

Moving Daffodils?

It doesnt mater what you pot them up in for now, as soon as the leaves die back they dont need soil at all. If you intend keeping them in pots, you can dry them, store them and plant in tubs in Sept or october in any compost, or you can pop them in the other garden now.

Sure its liverwort, sayiny you have thousands makes me wonder.

As I said, I have thrown some away, the really weedy ones.

They do come up every year but I am not sure if they are truly hardy everywhere. My daughter keeps hers but she is in Cornwall, much warmer.

Maybe keep some back, the best ones ,pot up and keep in the greenhouse if you can, they may be better next year, as most things are.

Mine are the same, in fact I was about to put it on the ' my failures thread.

I have had a couple of flowers and they were lovely but the green is all yellow and after pulling out, they didnt seem to make a decent root.

I havent got time to mess about with them, confined to the compost bin.

Need some more id's please!

Looking closely, I think there may be poppies in 2  just to the left of the pink label.

I made a mistake with the white flowers, they are that dreaded weed that explodes on impact when you pull it out.

Cane tops

Art, you could put a tall cane either end and tie a string accross the two, then bring your strings down to under the plants,

No not a poppy, its a spurge, if you google you will see the exact one.

The little pink white flower is what we call Ladies Tresses, not sure of real name.

Still dont know 3, not dicentra or aquiligia
