Hi, I remember reading somewhere "sow the seeds when the seed pod splits", this i did back in april, and have yet to see any germinate, in plants on this web site it says sow in autumn. Has anyone raised hellebores from seed, whens the best time to sow, and how long do they take to germinate, any answers would be gratefully received, thanks

Hi sally, i cut my jacks back to nothing when the leaves get tired and discoloured, this i do a little later in the year and have never had a problem, loads of fresh new growth, if in doubt only take some of the larger leaves off

Beware if you grow lavender, these buggers love it, i found the easiest way to get rid of them is just collect them, to escape they just drop so come from beneath and in to your hands they fall. Dont leave them cos they breed, and breed

Acer assistance - NEWBIE NEEDS HELP!

Hi, looking at "mummy", trunk colour, leaf size/colour, and general shape, she looks like acer palmatum orange dream, compare against others at the garden centres to be sure. As for the seedlings, not to sure, i have 5 acers all in pots, aged between 6 and 10 years old and only one has produced seeds (last year) but i get the same seedlings and have done for many years, would be interested to see what they are, hope you succeed in growing them on.

Hi, never been a great fan of tulips, but colour was needed as the daffs began to fade, so, i bit the bullet and 36 bulbs found a new home, planted in november 6in deep with a little compost and well watered in i thought see you in the spring.  Well,  all have become fully flowered, and in the colour chosen, the problem is all but 2 are bent over double with their heads resting gently on the soil,??? No pest damage, no virus, could it be just saturated heads with all this rain, any ideas, thanks
