I've grown a couple of the yellow variety from seed.  I planted the seeds in pots in 2012 - and only now have plants a couple of feet tall!  You obviously have to be really patient if growing from seed.  Good luck!

Many thanks to everyone for the information above.  VERY much appreciated.  I'll try again with cuttings and seeds via the methods you've mentioned.

Hiya Folks!

I have made this request before, but had little response.  Has anyone got any advice (or experience), regarding growing fatsia japonica from cuttings?  I tried taking some last year, but without success.  Very disappointed.  I'd really appreciate some information on the subject.

alterrnative to fruit tree banding

Hello everyone

I have a very big, old apple tree which I have pruned into shape so that the fruit is more easier to reach.  However, I think it also needs some sort of coverage round the base trunk to stop insects climbing up during the winter.  Banding doesn't get into the recesses of the bark.  Is there a cheap alternative of a wash of some sort I can buy or make to do the trick?  Ideas much appreciated

Many thanks

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
