Selling a Yew Hedge

Posted: 07/09/2014 at 14:31

the value I imagine will be significantly lowered when someone's gotta dig up and transport 45 yew trees!

Dahlias grown from seed, tubers?

Posted: 07/09/2014 at 14:04

I did buy a packet of dahlias when they were on sale in the GC, but these are the first flowers I've grown successfully from seed, so I guess I'm rather attached to them, I might have a go at storing a couple, just for experience I guess, When I store them do I store them in soil and leave in the shed and that's it? Do they need additional care?

Probably one of the youngest members here at 21, knows pretty much nothing about gardening, but enthusiastic all the same. Started off in my first house trying to grow wildflowers in small pots... So I've come a long way! Now has a front garden in a build up area in central worcester, growing veg in pots, and a particular fondness for sweetpeas and legumes. And anything that climbs up stuff really.

I'm brilliant at growing great amounts of beetroot that I can't possibly eat.

Got an allotment this summer, and looking forward to growing many more crops next year.

Dads are brilliant, and mums are pretty cool too...

I feel your pain being near a pub. The people who use the garden are particularly obnoxious in the local one here too. my poor OH had to go round the other day at 2AM and beg them to shut up or go home, the pub is supposed to close at 11:30. *sigh*

Good of your Dad though!

New garden new start... Fingers crossed

Saw it again the other day, I wish I knew what kind of tree we have, it's obviously some sort of flowering type, a lilac maybe? Time will tell I suppose!

Dahlias grown from seed, tubers?

Posted: 07/09/2014 at 13:50

This is probably the stupidest question you'll ever see on here, and I've tried googling to no avail.

I love my dahlias, and they won't be ready to form seed pods to collect before we move house, but as I grew them from seed will there be tubers for me to store, or replant in a sheltered warm spot in the new garden?

It's two weeks before we move, and the dahlias have been thriving so well in the small border, I'd be sad to leave them behind.

Thanks for your help as ever!

Can't think too long term or be too destructive as we don't own the property. Just renting it out for a while

White choc cheesecake

whenever I've melted white chocolate it splits and tastes awful I wanted to make a white chocolate and raspberry tray bake.

Verdict....your new plants this year

Does it count if it's a veg? We had some Broccoli rescued from homebase for 50p we thought all were eaten and past repair, but suddenly out of nowhere we've got a great ruddy huge broccoli risen from the ashes!

Where we are. the Big Map.

And turn up I did. Still a distinct lacking of West Midlands folk I see

Maybe my ears were burning and that's what brought me back to post.
