To dead head or not to

Posted: 05/04/2016 at 20:26

I've never dead headed a daff yet. The cultivars don't seed true so if you want your daffs to stay the same don't let them seed. The cultivars are any that have a name , Jetfire, February Gold, Carlton etc

If you have species daffs they will seed true.

Can anyone identify this purple five-petal flower?

Some are Vincas are pointed like that , some even more pointed. But I'd need to see some whole leaves and the shape of the plant before making an attempt at ID

When to transplant seedlings?

Posted: 05/04/2016 at 11:51

I have often pricked out grasses in clumps, 5 or 6, but they need to be potted on gradually, not put straight into a 1L pot. If they're an inch tall they probably have enough root to be pricked out.

I prick out cosmos as soon as I can get hold of them or when I get round to it

You can take loads off that one

Can you have too many different plants?

I can't have too many plants

But I've often got too many waiting to be planted out and no garden ready to receive them

Improve the soil and earthworms will turn op on their own. They need something to eat, you have to add that to the soil if it's not there already. Otherwise they'll starve or move to somewhere they like better
