Miniature bulbs

Posted: 07/09/2014 at 16:47

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

What pollinates Molly the Witch

Mine looks rough now Dove, I haven't tried but I should think if I pulled gently all the stems would come free. Don't forget where she is, expect her back next year.

Just went and pulled, most are loose but I tend to leave them there till I've finished other autumn works to remind me of her location.

That's fine, I like Allium triquetum and I haven't got a rockery for them to seed into.

A lot of the alliums are invasive aren't they, A. christophii comes up everywhere.
