Are Morrisons bulbs any good ??

Posted: 14/03/2015 at 09:39

You'll soon know if they are FS, the tips will go brown. I doubt if they'll have a problem. 3-6 degrees is not freezing and up against the house probably higher than that. They'll have hardened off a bit by now anyway

DD, I'm impressed with the living room style

Early summer

We've seen tree bumble bees, buff tailed  and a tiny bee that I wouldn't have recognized as a bee if I hadn't had an expert with me.

and maybe a couple of  honey bees on Ribes lauriflium but the expert wasn't with me then.

Also red admiral, brimstone and comma butterflies.

Laurel trees

Mine went yellow in the first year, many years ago now. My neighbour suggested Miracle gro. They went green after that but have had yellow times since. They are now huge but some are quite yellow. 

I have  a short length of hedge, about a dozen plant,s that has always been green. They're in poor soil and frequently disappear under weeping willows but they are the happiest.

Anyone done any gardening today?

None at all

Strolled round the garden with a friend this morning then another couple of friends this afternoon.

I think I'll have to go and water the babies though.

Can you identify these plants in my garden?

Does A have any scent about the leaves at all?

Laurel trees

In my experience laurels have a tendency to go yellow with any stress.

What did you spray them with? (just interested)

Check for drowning as Jimmy suggests, otherwise I'd leave them alone till spring growth starts then give them a feed.

Can You Help Identify?

Ribes sanguineum at the top I can see without enlarging.

I can't enlarge them,  so less confident of one of the winter flowering honeysuckles for the second.

Good idea, I love growing shrubs and trees from seed

Dividing Aubretia

Posted: 11/03/2015 at 19:03

I haven't grown aubrieta for ages but I don't think it divides, have a look at the middle underneath, if there's just one stem coming up, you can't divide. and I don't remember it rooting down

But you can take cuttings
