I was trying to find an old thread I started to give an update on it but when I look at my threads and click on the next page link for them I get redirected to the latest posts. It seems like the link has a wrong pointer or whatever it might be called.

Selfseeded Wallflowers

 I think my persian carpet mix I got some years ago finally has selfseeded. Of the original plans there is one left and below it all these are popping up. Or is this just a common weed...

Why is my thyme growing???

Posted: 09/05/2013 at 21:26

It's taken two years' to get here. Could it be that the soil is finally poor enough for it to thrive? 

Why is my thyme growing???

OK a bit of an odd opener but I have had these two plants for about 2 years and they have never really done anything just looked like they where planing to up sticks any day soon. Now they both have put on quite a lot of soft growth. Can't figure out why they have started to grow this spring compated to last. Its been cold and rainy here in Bristol and I thought they liked it to be dry and hot.

How deep do you need to plant the tubers?
I'll probably plant some in pots and the rest in the border using normal compost with s bit of added grit.
I thought you could overwinter them as dahlias?

Could anyone give me some advice on how to plant them. Bought 5 at Schiphol last night as I always wanted to grow them. The bag doesn't give any instructions bar plant April/May. They are currently in the fridge awaiting your advice.

Clematis Armandii Cuttings

Here in Bristol they seem to do well. They have all gone into gritty compost and been put outside. Fingers crossed.

Managed two years ago to take a cutting from a blue clematis which is in a big pot, dies back every year but never produces more than two leaves. Very odd.
