Forcing Hyacinths

I should think the cold is more relevant than the dark. Without human intervention bulbs are always in the dark. It's the cold that varies

No, preparing them is about making them think they've had winter. a chilling. They need this before they start growing

Bluebells as a table centrepiece

Hi Sandy, welcome

I'm not sure it will work either. It's a bit late, I associate bluebells with the early May BH.

also, whenever I see them for sale in pots they always look droopy - though this may be down to lack of care by the growers.

Do you grow Aconitum's?

liven up my laurel hedge

How about a crab apple or a hawthorn

More weeds I think??

Hi DD. I had some Nicotiana affinis over-winter last year but it was a really easy winter here. I'd rescue it and protect it over winter.

However, I find seeds sown in early spring flower before those that have over-wintered. I only know  about N. affinis and sylvestris. I haven't tried others.

re the first one; I don't grow them (not for long anyway) but I think echinacea leaves might be that shape as well

I'd remove some laurel and plant something more interesting.

The laurel hedge will never be as lovely again if you let a climber loose on it.

The top one looks like a rudbeckia, Goldsturm or similar.

I need to feel the 2nd one shape suggests oenothera or nicotiana
