Will Allium regrow

Posted: 10/03/2017 at 17:59

This is the culprit ( big allium ) which got in the way of the spade, the dark patch is the chopped bit. The little one I found the other day in the compost bin along with a begonia corm growing and my greenhouse gutter attachment, I looked everywhere for it, I dont know how it got in the compost bin 

I have to starting using a child's plastic spade  with FG chickhen wire cages, might be safe then.

Gro-Sure Farmyard Manure

I had some before and that was alright, like pokhim said probably just a bad batch.

I got some manure last year from a local stable, after getting home it had loads of rubber bits in it from the rubber mat floor, had to seive the lot

I chopped another Allium again while digging, I cut the shoot off and slightly grazed the side. I've potted it up , do you think it will regrow this year ?

I have cut alliums in half before thrown them in the compost bin to find them growing again when i am emptying it.  Every time I dig in the garden I chop an allium   

I haven't got to many either its not possible, going to have to get some more in autumn just in case

Large plug plants

Hi bea5 I grow lobelia from seed and have tried to split lobelia plugs before and I wouldn't advise, I end up having the same amount or less plants than I started with. I tried it the last two years on the trot and both attempts have been failures.

Depends how cold it gets at night, a maxi / min thermometer are ideal. Personally I wouldn't risk it yet

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Posted: 06/03/2017 at 22:25

Defiantly feels like spring today  played out in garden this afternoon.

Tidied front garden up - pruned / tied in all the roses - pruned hydrangea / sambucas - removed top layer of compost from GH veg border - good mulched GH veg border with homemade compost , I love homemade compost its like black gold, even the neighbour to a liking to my compost - had to bag up the rest of the compost, desperately need to turn the other compost bin into the old bin to start a new one, I've got bags / wheelbarrow full of cutting which need to go in - few improvements to the compost bin as well.
