Hello everyone

I have lots of Lucifer crocosmia which have finished flowering now.  Should I cut back all the foliage - or leave it to die back naturally.  Thanks

Many thanks Marco & Lyn for the advice.  I'll have a go at that.  I was quite concerned about killing them off, by trying to divide at the wrong time of year.

Hello  one & all

When is the best time to divide my drumstick primulas.  I put some in the garden about a year ago, and now they are looking quite 'clumpy'. But I don't want to disturb them until I can safely divide them without damaging them  All info appreciated.  Thanks.  Nikki7

Many thanks chrissieB.  Well, that sounds simple enough!.  But I hope they do re-post it again.  I must have missed that posting.

Thanks once again to both of you.  The tips are very much appreciated.  And I particularly like the improvising of kitchen/toilet roll centres to use as root trainers.  That's a really good idea!  Thanks again.

Thanks for the tips Johntheeng & Johnharding.  The kitchen paper method & root trainer, sound like really good ideas.  That way I will get to know if the seeds are viable or not - instead of wasting months waiting for them to show themselves through the soil where I've sown them. 

I have already tried again & put some more parsnip seeds in the soil,  (Yes I know it's very late now - but what have I got to lose?)  

Anyway, many thanks again for the tips. I shall definitely use them in the future.

Hello again

Thanks for the replies.  Yes, Italophile the seeds were this years - so very surprised no results at all!  Previously I have had great succes with growing them & excellent results.  I usually use Gladiator f1 which are a good quality seed.  Anyway, I've put some more in and keeping my fingers crossed.  I had a word with one or two other allotmenteers and they are having a similar problem?  Oh well, there's always next year.  Thanks again
