I have seen powdered volcanic rock for sale, supposed to add minerals to the soil, B&Q sell it under the Verve brand, some people swear by it.

Quick planting advice please

I would pot up the Hemerocallis first if it's bare root, but the other bulbs I would plant straight into the ground.

Rudbeckia, when should it start to shoot?

Posted: 28/03/2014 at 20:03

Depends, some Rudbeckias are annuals others perennials, the ones in my garden have remained green all winter due to the mild weather.
