Yes. Some shrubs and some bulbs starting to come through.

I recently had a trailer load of reasonably old manure donated. To get it on the garden (and off the drive) quickly I layered it on the beds. I know I need to work it into the soil but does anybody know is there any harm in leaving it for a few more weeks?

Miracle Gro Flower Seeds

Posted: 01/12/2013 at 06:38

I sowed the 'Miracle Gro' seeds in the Spring and Summer and have had a lovely crop of wild flowers, some of which are still flowering. Question is should I just leave them to naturally die back and re-seed themselves in the Spring or to cut them back/tidy up now and let them come back in the Spring? Any advice?

I have planted a row of firs at the bottom of the garden in a completely shaded area. I want to put some colourful bulbs under the firs to come up in the spring and summer. Can anybody recommend some and when to plant them please?

My big orang lily has flowered and is drooping and dieing back now. I think it is Crown Imperial (Fritillaria Imperialis) as it has very long stems and the flower hangs upside down. Question is, what to do now? Cut the stems and let other plants get the light and grow or let it continue to wither for longer?

Does anybody have any advise please?
