What pollinates Molly the Witch

Posted: 07/09/2014 at 18:40

Hi Salino, he's right. My own paeonies germinate in the first spring. bought seed germinates in the next if I'm lucky. I don't have anything that flowers with Molly, everything else is later. Not much later but enough.

Is 'Garden Flowers' a good CL book? I love his writing style but have been disappointed with later'picture books'.

I think it was your photo I saw last year fidget. Mine has about the same amount of seed heads as that with, last year, 5 fertile ones. This year just the little red nothings.

I'd like some blushing seeds please,

Hi Pansy. Is there enough in English or a picture to see what the bulbs are?

Now is the time to plant, bulbs know what to do. Crocuses are probably shooting already but that's fine.  They'll flower in their own time.

I think you'll be OK with 6 inches for crocuses .Have you seen the tiny containers flowering bulbs are sold in?

If you can let us know what's in there we can advise more

Many questions about late blight?

Selling a Yew Hedge

After 11 years all the roots will be tangled up together and I wouldn't want the job of moving them and keeping them alive. Yews make large roots very quickly and the chances of damaging them are high

Dove and Welshonion. I think you're both right. There's buttercups and geum in there. Geum urbanum maybe. Wood avens

Hi Chris, White sands is a cultivar of something, probably P. lactiflora. This is a species but I don't recognise it, sorry landgirl
