Can anyone help

Interesting fact about that plant.

All parts of the plant contain tropane alkaloids. The berries pose the greatest danger to children because they look attractive and have a somewhat sweet taste. The consumption of two to five berries by a human adult is probably lethal.

Morning All,

I bought some plugs months back and potted them into 3 inch pots and then forgot about them, i was intending the plant them next year but having just been reminded of them i went to check and they are all in need of potting on.

Just before i start to pot them on, i am right in assuming its too late to plant them straight out in final position?

Most of my acers in pots have started to drop leaves, one in fact is almost bare, i dont think there are any problems and the well established ones at my parents look much the same.

You pick up the lanscaping fabric from any b&q/homebase but they usually charge over the odds for it, i tend to buy it from b&m bargains/homebargains/poundstetcher/wilkos etc when i happen to go bargain hunting.  Probably not he best time of year to get hold of it though. 

You can also get it online for a fraction of the price, ebay would be a good place to start.

I started mine a couple of weeks ago and mine are growing way to fast as well, no where near that level.  Mine are now in a shady/cool place and in root trainers.

I am not sure what to suggest on yours though.

Looking for Something Different

Foxgloves (got about 5 types as well as plants already started this year) are very easy and nice plants, others i will be trying from seed will be antirrhinum, various lobelia, larkspur. i also did some very late dahlias from seed which where a mixed type and i was very impressed with vast array or different plants, so will probably try another seed mix of those.

Oh and cornflowers, had some of these in a wildflower mix, so will grow these by themselves next year.
