Hell here today in Sheffield. Heavy rain, pond has flooded, some of the borders now under water as is greenhouse and to cap it off its 4 degrees.

Had a lot of plans in garden today. Never mind I could still be working. Retirement is wonderful.

Have a nice day.

Seed Companies

Does anyone have a favourite company for their more unusual seeds. I have always used Chilterns but I have been dissapointed with results this year.

What flower seeds could I sow outside now to flower this year?

Calendula would do fine now. As would cornflowers and nigella and a far few more.

Some crab apples would fit the bill, although some would be too tall. There are also dwarf cherries.

Leaving tulips in the ground

Posted: 12/05/2013 at 21:59

One of the main reasons tulips tend not to come again is that naturally they come from the mountains of Turkey and Iran where they grow on shale so they have perfect drainage. They also get truly baked in the summer. We can never really replicate those conditions.

In a word No! Some tulips will naturalise but most weaken after a season or so and you do need free draining soil. Even if you dig them up dont expect them all to come back when replanted. Some people treat them as annuals.
