That looks amazing! Would never have thought about sinking the sleepers! The person who suggested it definitely needs credit

Dodgey Dahlia's

Hi Guys! Been a while! I've got a pretty major issue...I bought tonnes of Dahlia's this year (well, about 20) and kept them in my 'Plant Room' - which is essentially the spare bedroom. I potted them up in late February and they started growing in late march. They've all Ben growing really well, but I've been working 7 days a week lately and neglected them...and I visited the plant room today to find they've all snapped... Question: Will they grow back? I've had to remove all of the snapped foliage, but there's literally nothing left on a few of them. Question: I've now put them outside, but will they be alright with getting partial sun? The spot is south-easy facing, so by 2-2:30 they will start to be in the shade. It's my first year with Dahlias, so I'm a complete novice, but can see why they're so addictive!

ID plants please

I know you have to keep them moist and humid, so should spray them afew times a week. They also hate direct sunlight, and are a fan of shade. I bought one last year and forgot about it. Then I found it looking dead and shrivelled up. I soaked it and have kept in moist and cut all the foliage back. It come back very short, but it's flowering! I'm so happy...Yours will get there 

A couple of plant I.D's please

Could number 1 be Centranthus? 

Any experience of Cerinthe major 'Purpurascens'

Posted: 15/04/2014 at 10:17

I thought that they were half-hardy perennials....Usually treated as a hardy annual? 

If you bring them in over winter, they'll survive for years I thought, just like pelargoniums
