Bulbs: When to buy, when to plant?

best time to plant?

Bulbs are plants, they like to be in the ground

Sirus aria lutescens problem

Posted: 29/07/2016 at 18:52

I went and looked at mine,  just Sorbus aria, not a cultivar. One is in the same state as yours, I mowed more leaves than grass later on. The other 2 are fine.

It's not a disease or an infestation and I wouldn't consider using something that kills indiscriminately in my garden. Everyone to his own choices but you might like to think about what a 'bug' is and which beneficial 'bugs' are now dead

I.D please

if it's in a mix it may not have a name. 

I can do fuzzy photos as well

Astrantia Seeds

excluding tender plants I think the right time to sow anything is when the seed pods open, or the seeds become loose on the seed head. That's when the plant sows them.

and NOTHING hardy needs extra heat

Can you ID this plant please?

all these are hardy and divide well. any little bit with barely any root will grow.

Yes, that's Geranium sanguineum. It might be a cultivar of it, (that's a just a selected variety with larger flowers or a different colour). But basically it's Geranium sanguineum which is one of the native geraniums

I can't remember what I ate last night GD 

probably endressii or a hybrid on the geranium is my thought.

Valerie Gray says:

 any new plant from a rooted cutting will not be so dwarf, mine are growing to near normal size Budleja, 5 to 6 ft

See original post

 this shouldn't be the case. A rooted cutting is a clone and identical to the parent, it's how most shrub cultivars are maintained from one generation to the next.

seedlings will give you something different
