One of those sealants that go round windows to seal the gap? I'd go to a building materials warehouse and see what they've got for sealing anything to concrete. 

Laurel - uses

Posted: 18/01/2015 at 14:51

I assume we're talking Prunus laurocerasus?

It makes a nice big shiny bush. I think you need to tip the ends of the branches in  youth to get it to thicken up. I have some that I just let grow and they were fine for a good 15 years then got very see-through. They are  big shrubs if you don't trim them, roadside electric wire height and still growing.

I like Portugal laurel, Prunus lusitanicus,  it's a nice dark green and less inclined to get bits of die back. Again tall if not clipped

I am organised at sowing time Lesley.

Things get out of hand when they all need pricking out and potting on. The garden needs attention as well and I've not got enough hands.

I've never seen an earthstar either. Plenty of photos but hadn't realised they were as big as that.

I've written labels for the seeds I'm going to sow as soon as I've had another cup of coffee, GH warming up nicely and hopefully compost is thawing

Overwintering daffodil bulbs

Daffodils flower in spring and they need to be out there. Containers would do.

Which company to order seeds and plants from...

There are some paeonies out there Wills, some of my own and some that other forum members sent me. Some roscoea,

I'm completely obsessed with growing from seed, I sow seeds from plants in the garden that are easily divided and are species so would come true.

I've got some just arrived to sow tomorrow, two species of cotoneaster.

That reminds me. there are already two other species of cotoneaster out there and some species roses, I was given hips, no idea what they are.
