Flowers to Grow in Allotment

Good thing about Daffs is that there are so many species, you could have different varieties of them for quite a few months.

Only problem is the leaves take a while to die back.

Daffodil Bulbs are very cheap and great for cutting. Slugs dont bother those

Can I save my Topiary Trees? See Photo?

Looks like Buxus Pyramids, the pots seem awfully small and I would say they dried out over the Summer.

In the bin for those ones unfortunately .

I gave them a fresh cut at the bottom of the stem below a leaf node and put them back.

I'll leave them alone now for a while :P

Hi all, I took some cuttings from my large Penstemon on 15th August.

They are doing fine and growing new leaves but they have no roots :S

Is this normal or do they take longer than this to take root?

I took 6 cuttings of my annual Osteospermums exactly 3 weeks ago today, every single one has rooted well and I potted them on into 9cm pots this morning.

First time I've ever rooted cuttings so I'm pretty impressed

Free plants for next year

Talk about daylight robbery!

Tell me about it Mike, although I guess a plant is only worth as much as someone is willing to pay for it. If I really love the look of a plant I will buy it, if it is'nt overly expensive.

Staff discounts always help though
