Can anybody give me advice about growing crocosmia?  I have bought them as plants and they didn't come up the following year.  I have bought them as bulbs, planted them and waited and waited and waited..........and I'm still waiting!

My garden is ordinary garden soil - what am I doing wrong?



A poster last week was willing to give these away last week for the cost of postage-I don't think you are doing anything wrong as such just may not be the plant for your garden for some reason-this will not cheer you up but they grow like weeds here.

I will see if I can find the offer-just might be worth another go

I wonder if it is sitting in a sump-did you dig over the area for it or just dig a planting hole?

I think we need to know the age of our players-their will be an upper age limit and only a certain number over 23 -how many does that exclude or leave us with?

Some of the disciplines on the diamond Olympics would include the beigest uniform the hunting for the purse, the sucking of dentures and the first one to say "in my day"

It has been showering since mid-day- will not be going out again today

Ppetal-what job is that you do-and do you love it?

Off to play around in an hour- it is supposed to be dry morning- hopefully not as squelchy underfoot as last week- at the moment the sun has got its hat off
