Just received some terrible news, 2 of the volunteer ambulance drivers, who used to bring casualties to us, were killed in an explosion on Friday.

When are we going to stop this barbarism.

G. Rozanne is as tough as old boots, you could happily divide it now and then put it back in the troughs. Next year water a bit more, and feed from time to time, they should flower fine.

What to do with Canna bulbs?

Pot them up, store somewhere cool, but not too cold, and then bring into the warmth and start watering next Spring. They should not be planted out, until after the last frosts.

Aym, why have you added water retaining gel to the soil? It is not particularly useful, except in pots. Clay with added manure should retain plenty of moisture.

Camassia and other bulbs in pots?

The pots will be fine outside, but raise them off the ground, to ensure good drainage.

Camassia are not ideal for pots as they like damp conditions.
