Spring Bulbs

Posted: 21/09/2015 at 10:40

Hi Phaidra, we're not chalk but very alkaline and they do OK here. They grow naturally in water meadows and moisture will be more important than soil type. They can cope with a winter drowning. Once dormant in summer the need will not be so great. Or, at least, that's what I assume from how they perform here.

I need one of the big ones, more in scale with the surroundings here. The only nursery person I've found to confirm the potential size of his plants confirms that they aren't very tall

We saw the big ones on our Anglesey Abbey trip

I've had a good number of flower free years Yvie. I've almost dumped them, then I get a spectacular year

Pruning buddleja now?

I always reduce mine by at least a half in autumn or they get blown out of the ground.

Then I take some more off in spring, or later if I want a later flowering

hemlock or not
