Is it Daintiness? That's good. It's not a plant I know anything about

Plant them. they'll die if you don't. I'd put them in a pot of gritty compost in a cold GH.

Your fears of rot will be proved right in a cold wet winter outside.

I planted 8 in September, in a pot, I have 3 flowers, my first ever from several tries.

Are these the plants you mean?, the heteropappus

Unless the GM scientists have been working on them chrysanthemums don't have the genes for blue

What creature is creating the little piles in this photo?

worms are very happy between weed fabric and stones. I have my babies standing on that and am forever tipping out pots and finding a large worm in residence.

I've got the seed pots up on a metal grid, I thought the churning might take all the seeds to the bottom of the pots

Worms can get into a pot when It's standing flat on concrete as well.

It's a tricky one. All plants shed flowers, leaves, seeds and it shows on hard surfaces more than on soil/grass.

Avoid berries, they stain.

hyacinths bulbs

Posted: 26/10/2014 at 20:15

If they're last year's bulbs I'd put them in the garden and buy some prepared ones for the vases.

I think the prepared ones have been chilled so they think they've had winter therefore it must be spring and time to grow.

Last year's bulbs are still waiting for winter before they start growing. They won't get that indoors.

Does that make sense? If not blame the wine
