Got some free red tulips from my local Notcutts so am using those. Suspect they'd be old variety so might be ok. I was aware that would need to dig up / discard but thought I'd just see how they do and maybe replace year after.
I'll use the potting compost / manure under an acer that I STILL haven't got round to planting. Better hurry up.
If anyone wants to write an essay on soil/ compost / grit/ manure and how and when to use, that'd be lovely. Perhaps a feature for the magazine soon???? (although as a new reader prob my luck if it's only recently appeared)
