Growing Crocosmia Lucifer from corms

Posted: 04/03/2016 at 17:45

Unless they're old and dried out they'll grow TGG. 

Why doesn't my blackthorn produce sloes?

Posted: 03/03/2016 at 21:44

If you get another blackthorn is might be more willing fruiter but blackthorn has male and female bits in the flower and doesn't need a friend

I can't say why it doesn't, do you see sloes around in the countryside?

No luck!

I should think the corm hasn't reached flowering size yet. When it does start you'll have seedlings everywhere unless you remove the seed head. The seed head is the best bit


Love in a Mist - Nigella

If you grew them last year I should think they'll appear again this year.

I've never used trays for nigella, always direct sown

Comfrey, who knows one from t'other

Posted: 02/03/2016 at 20:04

I have a huge collection of plant photos, most of which I've never got round to labelling. I've never known which comfreys these are,

The blue one is about 2 foot tall and may be a hybrid, I've never had a seedling, it spreads by roots. That one flowers in summer

The white one is much shorter,about a foot, has black dots on some of the leaves (not a disease) and flowers very early, it's been out since new year but is always early. I've never had a seedling from this one either but it spreads well and makes a thick carpet

Conifers don't recover from bald bits and brown bits never go green again. I'd start again with something more suitable for your soil.
