What now for my indoor hyacinths?

Posted: 17/02/2014 at 17:27

I like the flowers slightly smaller, they don't fall over like the ones that are forced. I don't mess about, I plant them in the garden as soon as they've finished flowering and let them sort themselves out. Usually a bit deeper than they were in the pot. I'm getting quite a collection now. The cream ones are lovely

Plants for shade

Aquilegia does well in shade. Aconitum, pulmonaria, 

A  good plan is to go and look at other peoples' gardens and see what they have in shade and how well they're doing

Anyone name this bee magnet please?

I'd go with Lonicera. One of them, I think purpusii, tends to have leaves when it flowers and fragrantissima doesn't. But this may be just mine and where they are growing.

and I may have gotit the wrong way round

Hi LH, the annuals will die when they've flowered and set seed. Then you can pull them up along with the inevitable weeds. 

Some are better at self seeding than others. You can save the seed of any of them to sow the next year, and/or let them seed where they are. You can't lose.

I agree Hostafan. Best not counted. I can't do sums anyway.

No problem with onions and rhubarb but I think onions like the sun
