A few bulb queries (well it is that time of year...)

A few bulb queries (well it is that time of year...)

Posted: 27/08/2015 at 21:26

Q1: I've some miniature daffs bulbs left unplanted last year.  Noting I get very little time to garden, is it worth me planting them to see if they grow or are they unlikely to do much?

Q2:  Are there any tulips that do put on a good show in future years without being lifted? (I've got clay soil.)

Q3: I bought a few alIium bulbs today, to plant in a herbaceous border. Should I plant them clustered or spread out?  (I'll dig out the names in a mo - will lose post if I navigate away.)

Many thanks

What is this please?

Eric's mum - google hemerocallis gall midge - could this be the problem?

kathy - stunning!  I only had 5 before my new border which added another 12 or so.  I don't know what they are as got them cheap as missing labels. One has turned out to be a kniphofia! Planted bare root May and got a few flowers. Looking forward to a bigger display and attempting identification next year.

Is this an underground weed?

I think you'd need to let it grow to see the leaves etc for someone to identify it. Doubt anyone could do so from the roots.

Morning Dove!  Hope day went as ok as possible.  Was torrential here all afternoon so I expect you came back to well watered garden and Welsh  cousins feeling very at home

I just love day lilies.  Others don't seem to share my view - often saying that there aren't enough flowers for the leaves, get too big etc but I seem to really have a thing for them.  I created a new border recently with the intention of usining heleniums and the like with a few grasses and it "accidently" got filled with day lilies.  (There was this offer...) Whoops! Good luck with the seeds Lorna.

Hey Panda, you're on a roll. Fingers crossed for you.

Jo, such things put my grumbles in perspective. So sorry.

thanks Topbird - found it with your instructions!  For some reason it doesn't come up when search for owls.  I've got a bit of a thing about owls but not managed to find out that much about them.  Went to a sanctuary years ago and when came back searched for a book to find out a little more but couldn't find anything.  Programme looks good.
