I don't watch TV Wills, hate it. Occasional GW on iplayer so I can't fast-forward the boring bits
What's x factor?
I can't find David K's sweetpea thread, can someone dig it up for Wills?
My guess is that all the shrubs and perennials that are flowering now, out of time, will flower again at the right time but the bulbs won't.
This is based on a scientific idea with its roots in sauvignon blanc
I wouldn't have put them in there.
I'd have them out on germination before they get all soft and leggy
David K will know the best route forward
Hi Enez, some of the crab apples hang on to the fruit all winter
I think it must have flowered when you weren't looking. You don't get fruit without flowers.
The catkins are the male flowers which fertilise the female flowers. The female flowers appear at the same time as the catkins open up in spring. The females are little tufty red things. You've got 4 so you'll be OK for cross pollination.
Diseases are generally specific to a plant or close relative. I doubt if your tulips would be susceptible to garlic rust.I've never seen rust in tulips but I don't grow many.
