Reliable website for ordering bulbs

Posted: 06/08/2014 at 09:17

Rose Cottage Gardens have the best bulbs that I have ordered. They also do fab. Dahlias.

I agree Lyn that while I dont like Parkers for plants, their bulbs are good and cheap.

DD, they never seem to look quite the same as in our heads do they? Some days I love my garden other days I hate it.

Fg, I have just seen those poppies, absolutely amazing.

Dove, I love Cromer, although it is years since I have been. Still love a crab sandwich.

Enjoy your evenings.

Lupin seeds do not need pre-soaking.

Personally I would sow them in pots, as seedlings are a magnet for slugs. If you sow now they will be big enough to flower next year.

Some post Glastonbury favourites: Rudimental [ Amazing feel good, dance music ] Elbow [ didnt like them until I heard their set ], Robert Plant [ still got it, Whole Lotta Love was electric ], Kaiser Chiefs [ great sing along fun, the sun shining helped ] and too many more to mention.

Glad you enjuyed Carfest OL.

Now then.

Dove my breakfast order is: all of them please.

Friday must mean curry, so I will bring a selection of fine ales, lagers and cider. Babycham for the ladies?

As for sleeping in amongst the grasses, I blame Dove, getting me drunk.

I feel a bit odd typing this with all the lights turned off, nearly broke my neck walking from the lounge to the study.

Greenhouse Advice

Quite like the new name. I dont have a problem with the annuals getting too leggy. Corflowers I sow in Autumn, tend to be flowering by June, thenones I sow in March, start flowering in July.

Greenhouse Advice

Everything you have mentioned would be fine in the greenhouse. I dont heat mine and use it to over winter cuttings, early seed sowing, protecting slightly tender plants.

It is not just the higher temps. that help, but the protection from wind and rain, which is what kills many plants outside.

I start my hardy annuals in late Feb. / early March, but I also sow some in Autumn and then over winter, and some perennials get sown in winter in the greenhouse. In particular this seems to work very well for Himalayan poppies.
