Hellebore advice

Posted: 24/03/2013 at 16:42
I have to say they are very addictive! I bought one last year at RHS Gardens Wisley for ??17.00 rip off I know but I had only just discovered them, since I have bought three packs of seeds, does anyone know when you're meant to sow them and how? The company I ordered them from didn't sent me any growing instructions

There are a few options, the ones I picked may not be to your liking, but things like frost hardy gardenias, boxwood, minature conifers and my favourite for balconys is dogwood. Although they are deciduous, they have beautiful autumnal colour when they don't have leaves and can be pruned to any size, I have one in a window box that I keep at 2ft.

Thankyou both, think it may be a little late to start making my own leaf mould, but will in the autumn. Can you buy it? And also winter, what bark do you buy as I'll buy the same

Is any one growing marrows

Posted: 24/03/2013 at 16:00
Mine just germinated, in 9cm pots, I have a conservatory which I keep them in until the weather warms up, that way they are huge and produce loads of flowers before I harden them off in pots around June...Not sure what variety, as I got them at a seed swap a couple of years back.

I got mine off the Friday ad, cost me ??40 and got free shelving with it...was so pleased!

They're such lovely little birds, shame we don't get them down here in Brighton, all we get is Seagulls!

I'm in need of some mulch for my roses and a few other plants like hostas and raspberry s, does anyone have a personal preference and which one would work best on these plants?

Thankyou for that nut, do you recall how long it took for them to reach a size to be planted?

Growing Lavender from seed

Posted: 24/03/2013 at 08:50
Hi there, This is my first time on here so hope I'm doing it right... Basically I have a packet of English lavender seeds and I have tried unsuccessfully for the past 5 years to grow them from seed. I try and do what it says on the back of the packet, but I see other people grow them from seed with different methods. Any help would be greatly appreciated
