Thanks for the idea of coffee grouds to deter cats - we are plagued by them - digging up bulbs etc then not burying their deposit it is disgusting.  Any more deterrent ideas would be welcome !!

Best dwarf pear or apple?

Posted: 28/03/2013 at 20:47

I already have a dwarf apple and I am looking for a dwarf plum or pear without success any advice ?

When you plant them don't forget to leave the foliage on until it completely dies off.  I have had a lot of success as the bulbs originated from my Grannie's garden and I am in my sixties !!!!  I have heads showing on my snowdrops today - I am SO happy !!

I always divide snowdrops just as the flowers have gon and the leaves are still green. Keep them well watered until they settle in - SUCCESS.
