What is this I know it's germinating? :)

Posted: 05/03/2015 at 16:46

Outside, it's a hardy native tree.

See if you can find some more. You need more than one to get nuts. Not that you'll get nuts, the squirrels will be quicker than you 

Anyone done any gardening today?

I can hear a lawn mower

Not mine.

I have stuffed lots of dried last year growth through the shredder. Very dry and dusty, still coughing.

Plant it now daisy or it will die.

I'd put it in a pot til it's a bit bigger

Need help germinating some old bulbs w/ pic

I fear those are very dead. Some bulbs do need a cold spell to trigger flowering but they need to be in the soil and not dried out.



Willow Trees

Don't buy them for that reason Cat. They'll suck up the water in the summer but won't make a bit of difference between October and March. 

and they're not the only things that grow in boggy ground.

I'd leave them and think about it. Visualize them in your garden. If you have room and like the idea get something smaller. You can plant any time if you get container grown plants.

Have you seen them growing in gardens? interesting, useful for dried arrangements, but I don't find them attractive.

If they've just got hessian round bare roots and have been like that for 7 weeks already I'd leave them at the GC.

Tortuous is the word but tortured describes them well

Have you got plenty of space? They're potentially big trees.

what are you excited about?

Fritillaries flowering Verdun

I'll have a bit of a wait yet

What's flowering in your garden today?

My bergenia never thrive Victoria. I think one clump has snuffed it but may have been undermined by rodents/moles and nothing round the roots. I haven't investigated yet

Iris unguicularis

Thanks Dave, you just get more and more dead leaves over the years and they don't pull off easily like most dead leaves. Maybe that's all non-bulbous irises, the pseudocorus have very tough dead leaves as well.

Mine had a hair cut 2 years ago when we painted the outside of the house and they look better for it. I don't want to weaken the plant by doing it too often.
