Planting out now

If i see some nice plants in the GC would it be okay to plant them out now?...Is there any benefit of doing it now vs Spring?...

My garden is so bare!! I only just finished all the ground work late summer and haven't had time to plant anything in the beds...

Hi,

If I see some nice plants in the GC would it be okay to buy them and plant them now? Is there much benefit of this vs doing it in Spring?....

I have such a bare garden!...

Hi there,

So I would really like some flowering foxgloves next year. If i buy plugs now does that mean they will flower next year?.....


Sorry i'm a total noob...

Layering in a plant pot

Hi All,

I received my order from the GC yesterday...I want to layer the bulbs in plant pots so that in Spring I get a beautiful flourish of colour packed into each small(ish) plant pot.

It says on the box to plant out the bulbs as soon as possible after delivery. When should I be planting these in pots?....

thanks!!!

My Chilli plant is immense, but what about over winter?

Thanks! What's the best way to prune these? i.e. how much should I take off?..

Hi,

My chilli plant has done very well this year and I am still getting new flowers and chillis from it. But what happens over winter, will it die? Should I bring it inside?.....What shall I do with it?

thanks

Hi,

How do you all know so much, particularly when to plant things outside?..Some of you people know so much about gardening it's quite impressive.

I'm just starting out with my border idea and i'm pretty sure I want some foxgloves, but considering they're bienniel I wont see them flower next year if I plant by seed this year. Should I buy a couple of plants in spring and put them down? Or should I plant them now? If I get them from Crocus will they flower summer 2014?

I'm also going to plant some rudbeckia, echinacea and have to think of others...my plot if 3m x 1.5m and has slightly acid soil in partial shade.

Hi,

I'm really new to gardening and have done some good renovation recently. I have managed to clear a nice bed which is in partial shade (morning and midday sun) which is 3.2m x 1.4m.

I've seen some nice ready made beds you can buy, which have all the plants etc...what do you think of those? Good or bad?  

thanks
