Hellebores

If you want hellebores go to a hellebore specialist, eg Ashwood's or Harveys. They are nurseries, they grow plants, not just big business selling them

I think birds do sometimes fly away from a window but are too damaged to survive. Internal bleeding maybe

i think pansy is right that this is a mallow (or something in that family) but I don't think it's the common weed type

A look at the whole plant could help. and where is it growing? It looks very lush and green.

Bulbs in pots

Posted: 02/10/2014 at 14:08

If you've got the bulbs , plant them. They'll be dead by next year if you don't.

You keep them pure by not letting either seed till you've got rid of the ones you don't want.

The existing bulbs will not change into something else. 

Talkback: Leatherjackets in lawns

When you see all the crane flies bouncy around the lawn, that's the time to deal with it. go and squash them before they lay the eggs.

I don't do this, it's all part of life and something will eat the larvae. The more indiscriminate poisoning that goes on the more the balance is upset and one pest gains superiority

Isotoma pot indigo

These are advertised as annuals. They may be half hardy or tender perennials rather than annuals, some companies don't distinguish between the two (or 3).

They won't take a winter outside whichever they are.

Plant snowdrops asap, they don't like drying out and are best bought 'in the green'.

I've failed to grasp the problem with putting them in the garden, they won't get contaminated by the spanish ones, The offspring will probably be crosses. If you don't let them seed this will not happen.

Being in pots will not stop them hybridising.
