Alstroemeria in pots

Posted: 07/11/2015 at 09:00

I had 3 9cm pots of these from t & m about 3/4 years ago, they spent the first season in a large pot! I then dug a massive hole and put them all in really deep to avoid the frost. Ever since they have probably been the most successful t & m purchase. Anybody got any advice on dividing? The clump is around 40cm now

Spider id please.

I'd wait for the spring, it's not to grow much over winter. Hard pruning will be fine, you should see regrow the within 4-6 weeks.

Looks like Portuguese laurel, prunus lusitanica

Is lawn edging popular?

A client of mine has everedge in the woodland part of the garden, is pretty good at holding back the borders from the lawn and for defining the paths

 fairly easy too move around if you want to change anything which I did earlier this year before laying new chipping!

Is this unusual

Where are we ordering our summer bulbs from?

So the bulbs from gee tee turned up along with another parcel containing someone else's order, emailed them to let them know and they said keep them!!! That's 570 more bulbs for me now! That's a lot of tulips in pots for friends I think.

I ordered 150 bulbs from gee tee at the weekend on the back of some good reports I heard! Almost all off them are alliums, so come May/June next year my garden should look like a bit mad with all those balls floating about!

Odd growth on lilac

Two stems appear too be a different plant, I've read that they are sometimes grafted onto privet rootstock
