Is it too cold to do hedge cutting?

Posted: 02/12/2014 at 20:42

I've just done my hawthorn/hazel/wayfaring tree/spindle/buckthorn and all the rest hedge Verdun. But perhaps that's not a hedge in the full sense of the word. Spring gets me into birds nesting season.

I did some laurel as well, with a bit of luck that might kill it. I've gone off laurel

They won't take over, they'll have a short season and you won't see them till next year.

You did Fishy

I don't like amaryllis, I'd leave up there

You clean the tops of cupboards as often as i do Fishy

More often probably

This is a useful site for how to germinate what. Look under germination and it's all alphabetical.

I haven't found primulas need any cover, they do OK outside but I don't know which ones you've got.

I have quite a lot that could do with a cut but I know the sort of mess that would cause.

I've got those, I've never given them a name. Very pretty and no trouble as far as I can see. It's a good time of year for fungi, the upcoming frost will finish them off

Where to keep hyacinths, GH or inside

They're hardy. I grow them in the garden. But if you've bought prepared bulbs they've been pre-treated to be ready to flower indoors at Christmas or somewhere near.

I agree the yellow being best, though my red one is 4 or 5 foot tall. Small flowers for 5 minutes.

All  bit short flowering for much garden impact.

and my red one produces red babies very rarely, muddy yellow and blotchy orange more often
