spring bulbs

Posted: 10/04/2015 at 11:08

Leave them to die back naturally, feed them if you do that sort of thing No knots to be tied in leaves.

I never dig bulbs up, though some of mine could do with lifting and splitting up a bit. 

Sorry, another ID please!

I'm not convinced by digitalis or verbascum.

The one on the left looks decidedly salvia to me. 

Daffodil or narcissus?

 Thousands I should think.

Plant id please

You forgot Circaea lutetiana Bob

Different daffodils & history ?

Posted: 09/04/2015 at 22:08

I like the top one. 

I like bulbs that persist and don't need digging up and splitting and faffing around with.

February Gold, Jetfire, Tete a Tete, though it tends towards single heads after time, and Pheasant's Eye have all been good. 

Daffodil or narcissus?

I'm sure it has a name but there are so many very similar cultivars about.

Have a look at one of the big on line bulb catalogues, this is the first one I found, there are lots. See if you recognise any




Daffodil or narcissus?

They're all Narcissus. Daffodil is the common name usually applied to the traditional yellow ones

Me too Peanuts. I never get it all out before it seeds and the seeds stick to clothes to be transported elsewhere 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: 09/04/2015 at 21:23

I did some brick mining, just one bucket full today, and dug up some stinging nettles. Planted some thalictrums rescued from certain death in a nettle patch. Moved some non flowering Anemone nemorosa to place more likely to please. Planted seed raised ragged robins and hope the chosen site is not too dry. 

Another gardening day tomorrow

Plant id please

Tellima is a  big self seeder, more than geums, in my garden at least. Geums are more likely to die than reproduce.

Except for G. urbanum
