Many thanks Both just stuck my finger in and they are a little dry they are also sprouting new shoots from the base - am I right in thinking not to trim the shoots until I have replanted them and trimming these a month or so later?

Edd I am going to replant into large pots and was going to put the pots onto one of those plant saucers but prefer the suggestion from Dove of plant feet - should I put a tube into them to water directly in or just water directly onto the top?

Advice would be greatfully appreciated

Many thanks for everyone's help - just planted the Rosemary with a lot of grit and removed the fleece and hopefully weather permitting on Saturday will get the others in....

Dove mentions Bay Trees I bought 2 large bargain trees to stand by the front door at the same sell off,  of plants at the end of January - I have them standing in terracotta pots ready to replant them. They don't receive any rain or wind there and I am watering them weekly what soil mixture do you think will be best to re-plant them with? They are around 5 feet tall and appear really healthy but worried about them drying out. Also wondered as they are in pots do I put a pipe in to pour water in directly once replanted?

Advice would be greatfully appreciated

Hi Punkdoc it was a gamble I was willing to take as the plants were in a closing down sale priced to sell from a National Trust garden centre here that was closing down - I have all the pots cuddled together surrounded in fleece - and they were in an outside area of the garden centre that was not so well protected.......

Hi Nutcutlet they are all sat outside and were outside when I bought them and we are fortunate here that the soil is very damp but not water logged - if I plant them after work tomorrow evening and then give them a dressing of manure this weekend fingers crossed all should be ok?

Edd - The one Rosemary is looking really sad for herself very pale don't think looking at her she would last till April......(she is a good 20" high) so would be sad to lose her

Hi

A couple of weeks ago I purchased some healthy potted plants from a garden centre that was unfortunately closing down. They have been sat waiting patiently to go into the soil - I am itching to get them in and was sorely tempted yesterday with the sunny day we had here in Thame wondered if it is safe to go ahead or should I wait another couple of weeks they are:Rosemary really large bushes (one is starting to look pale) - Hardy Spring Flowering Broom- Agapanthus - Miscanthus Zebra (I have trimmed back last years dead leaves that were around 18" in height - Advice would be greatly appreciated Many thanks Ann

Where is the best place to look for information on ferns?

Posted: 06/02/2014 at 17:16

Hi

I am beginning a fernery and found Bowden's to be brilliant. I received their catalogue which was excellent really informative and then emailed them with the area size and what ferns from their collection I thought could work. They called me to discuss it through with more suggestions and am now waiting my delivery for the end of Feb - would thoroughly recommend them - First Class service

......the good guys
