Quick Dahlia question

Posted: 23/01/2014 at 18:35

I had three in my garden and the only one that is still alive is the one that I never lifted. Quite surprised it has survived these two last winters in the ground. This year it never flowered due to the constant slug attacks.

Tomatillos

Anyone had any experience of growing these? Thought they were supposed to be easier to grow than tomatoes but was told at a seed fair that they have to be grown in a greenhouse in the UK and the seed seller at the Bristol event was from Somerset so you think he would know.

Do you need a greenhouse for these? I thought I read somewhere you could grow them outdoors.

Nasturtium

Hi,

How long do they last outdoors? I have 3/4 plants that are still going. Two germinated early this autumn and the others where bought as plants. All of them are doing ok but have slowed down. If there is no frost, will they go on till spring? Quite sure there must have been frost here in Bristol this winter though...

Christmas cactus I'd say.

I get them too but mostly if they dry out. Not that bothered with them as it doesn't seem to harm the plant too much.

I planted some seeds this spring and they only germinated some weeks ago!

Cool. I'll wait for them to be released and dry them indoors.
