Clumps of crocus with no flowers

Posted: 07/03/2015 at 09:33

They look like crocus to me as well, that lighter line down the middle is a bit of a giveaway and grape hyacinths tend to be floppier looking than that.

Who did you have an email from? What did it say?

Bare roots perennials - can I put them straight in the border?

Those dry bits in boxes?  I'd rehydrate and pot up til they start growing.

Re Topbird's suggestion.

Pots of lavender could be removed for weedkilling. It would be harder to spray weeds without harming the annuals

A ground covering layer can be mown for a start, It makes it easier to find the separate stems to pull. It's one of the easier plants to remove (compared to bindweed, ground elder and worse)

Red robin help needed!

I would cut lower than that. Those two stem up against each other will be where the rot sets in. Maybe has set in.

If Verdun is right about 2 plants you may be able to separate them and remove the dead one completely

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

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

Posted: 05/03/2015 at 15:54

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.
