Talkback: Ask Adam

I have several bulbs in my garden that have not produced any flowers. I garden on heavy clay and generally only feed borders in the spring as the ground gets too hard after that. Having read some articles it is recommended to give a dose of phospherous to encourage blooms but if my bulbs have already not bloomed, is it too late to start feeding them for next year.

Talkback: Growing alliums

I planted 3 of the allium globemasters a couple of years ago but unfortunately only one seems to want to bear a flower which is rather annoying considering they were £5 per bulb! I am unsure whether this is down to a 'duff' bulb or lack of feeding. I garden on heavy clay which I have attempted to improve by adding sharp sand, compost etc. I feed my borders religiously in the spring but then generally forget as the season gets underway. Is it worth keeping them planted to see what will happen or is there a reason why they are not flowering? Any advice would be great.

I have just had to take out an established climbing rose that was twisting happily around my pergola post due to some construction works about to start. I know it is not wise to re-plant roses where one has already been planted but does this apply when you want to re-plant the rose close to its original position.
