Your bulbs are about exactly as advanced as mine KEF. Spring seems much earlier compared to last year doesnt it?

Just planted all those excess Daffs I potted up in October in a lovely line along the path to my back gate.

Should be lovely when they come into flower

Repotting into a slightly larger pot using John Innes no.3 compost should perk it up a bit ^_^

Sowing bedding pansies

Posted: 27/02/2014 at 20:55

After a season Pansies tend to become a bit leggy and straggly, this is why they are sold as annual bedding plants.

Though if you cut them back regularly during the growing season you can extend their lives.

I would suggest sowing them in a coldframe outside now

Pansies are made of tough stuff

as long as the wildflowers are not too aggressive (as they will compete for moisture/nutrients) then it should be fine Pauline

it should be fine in that pot for a little while as long as its kept watered. If its going to be a few months I would say repot into some John Innes no.3 Compost.
