I can type now, I couldn't before.

Yes, I noticed that Mr J. I don't care, I use my real name everywhere else, but I can imagine this will not go down well generally.

Edit. I think that's gone already Mr J.

also agree with Bonsai Mark re spacing etc.

I'd use engineering pricks or those made for paving. Some others are as obelixx says, they can start disintegrating very quickly indeed, one winter. 

Bumble Bees

Do bumble bees live in hives?

There are bees in my garden, I think that's where they need to be. I didn't know you could get bees in packages. Do they come with instructions?

labels, yes. good idea. I've just planted something labeled CL. Looks like a codonopsis so hope it's in the right place.

re the crinum. these bulbs are HUGE when mature,9'' to a foot across, I'm not kidding. (and would need an enormous pot). 

I was given 4 originally and there wasn't much room left in a spud sack. 

ID help please

Crinum x powellii probably. Likes good moist soil. Christopher Lloyd grew some in a bog. They're sad things on my dry soil. Bulbs get enormous, plant it out, sun and moisture and wait.
