I think my hubby thinks I'm there already every time we pass a shop with plants in I have to go and have a look, even brought a japenese maple for a container on the patio today! I'm out bimbling around the garden with my secatuers at any free moment (not that theres much to do only dead heading!) and even have birds visiting for the food. I'm not obsessed I'm enthusiastic!!

haha they are very hard to see when they first come up I planted something right over the top of it because I forgot where they were and pulled a few of the first leaves off, luckily it doesn't seem to have harmed it. My Bowles mauve though has flourished since I brought it last year flowering all winter apart from in the snow we had, whethat's snow thawed it started flowering again. I'm very new to gardening but enjoying it immensely.

Thank you so much nutcutlet, I was racking my brain as to what it could be but now you said that I remember planting it in a container with a perennial wallflower (bowles mauve) last year and the wallflower took over the pot and I never saw the oxalis again!  Now I know what it is ill look forward to seeing it again!

Do you prune back the stems of a bare root rose. Mine has a green waxy substance on the larger stems.

Hi verdun thanks for getting back so quick I did water it in when I planted it but as I have laid new turf as well I have been watering that every day. I think I will leave the bleeding heart alone as you suggest then and hope that it will be ok when the weather finally warms up!

Hi i live in wales I brought a bleeding heart plant and planted it last week in a semi shady place we have been hit by frost almost every morning, since then the leaves it had are wilting but it has new leaves coming have I over watered/under watered or is this normal in frosty conditions? I'm a novice to gardening and don't know what to do!

Thanks in advance for your help
