Wallflowers-how can I be sure of getting reds & orange?

Posted: 07/04/2017 at 10:40

Only if you buy a specific strain.

Try Blood Red or Fire King, which I think are great and I team them with a dark purple / black Tulip.

Good thanks Hosta, but being a natural pessimist, somewhat worried that we might be in an end of the world scenario.

Need to get out in the garden.

If I say so myself the NHS is great, probably the thing I am proudest of, about our country.

Hi all.

If I advertised my greenhouse on freecycle, it would have to say 10 X 8 1 intact pane of glass.

Feeble hyacinths or Spanish bluebells?

They look identical to some Spanish b.b's I have just been trying to dig out !!

Maybe too early to tell, but they also may have been frosted, they are not fully hardy.

I would leave them for a few weeks.

The cuttings will grow on quickly and give you flowers this year.

Hi all.

Lovely and sunny, think I may need to water some areas of garden !

Hosta uppermost in my thoughts, firstly I have been awake since 4am and secondly I found lots of Hosta shoots starting to poke through yesterday.

I wondered where you had gone Fairy.

Probably a stupid question, but why did you buy it, if you didn't know what it was for ?

Coryadalis, I think.

Mow lawn with walnuts, chestnuts, hazelnuts on it.

IMO and a very short answer;

1. compost it.

2. petrol mower.

Hi all.

Today I am apoplectic with rage, up to 100 dead, countless more injured.

Putin blames the rebels, Trump blames Obama and everyone sits on their hands doing nothing.

I have witnessed the results of chemical weapons first hand in Iraq and it is something no one should have to witness.

Anyway I am going into the garden and am going to take out my anger on some overgrown shrubs.
