Like so many I didn't really think yoo much about my 'gardening' name - just to say my beloved dog (now in doggy heaven) was called Mutley and the 200 - well sometimes after a day in the garden I feel 200!!

tulips in pots

Posted: 24/06/2013 at 16:09


I know my 'hero' Monty (GW) says to treat tulips like an annual and throw away the bulbs when they are finished!!!  BUT  this year I had such wonderful pots full of tulips which were absolutely lovely and I'm louthed to simply disguard them.  They have all died down now and as I don't need the pots for other bits can I simply leave them to maybe come up next year OR is Monty right and I just need to get on with it and rid of them!!#

Thanks any advice will be helpful

I agree with you they are stunning but they do have to be staked and as you say some 'wander' a produce a snake like stem - still I will let them 'seed' and hopefully I'll get more next year.  I wonder where Berghill lives as it appears she/he has a problem but they have been greatly admired here in the Cotswolds!

Thanks for all the feedback - it's a brilliant website for all us like minded gardeners.

Thanks nutcutlet - you've solved it - just looked it up and it is Nectoscordium Siculum - so I've put a label on it and now when people enquire (it's our village fete today!) I can tell them or they can look at the label.  Very much appreciated

I was so pleased to see Astrantias on Gardener's World - I have just discovered them and am trying desperately to get more as I'm trying to create a 'cottage Garden' and they stand up so well with virtually any other plant - I love 'em

This plant is as tall as an Allium - single stemmed with a beautiful drop head with 20 or so pinkish small 'bell like' flowers hanging down. Bees love them

I obviously planted them and people ask me what they are - sorry I've totally forgotten!

I would plant them again if only I knew what they are!

Thanks gardenning granny - I will do that and the tip on feeding them now is useful too.  As they border a bank which I have to mow I was thinking of ways to 'keep them out the way' to let them die down naturally.  They are lovely but they now look a mess so how long before I can 'mow' over them!!!

All my Daffs are gone - do I cut them down or what?

Thanks for all the advice - I started digging them up this afternoon - Where the hell they came from I do not know.  Although thinking about it I did lay a new lawn (turf) last September and I've noticed they are in that too - so maybe that's where they came from!!  I agree with Gold1locks I think I'm in an exterminate exterminate mood!!
