Talkback: Bulb layering in a pot

This looks lovely and I will certainly be giving this planting method a go! The daffodil bulbs seem quite deep though, will they affect their growth?

Poppies in a tin hat

I shall keep trying. I must buy some packets of Flanders, I love them. Will have to look for a more sheltered spot, in which to plant them. I noticed a neighbour is growing the larger ragged looking poppies and they are beautiful! I have collected a few seed heads from him and will give theses a bash. I grew them when I lived in Lincolnshire and they were stunning! Maybe there's hope yet, especially if the weather starts returning to the summers we used to have.

I have been spraying mine daily with a mild wash of soapy water. It's worked so far.

I actually like Mind Your Own Business... I can see you all raising yours eyes, but i do. In the garden centres, I have noticed it with little orange balls. Is this the same plant as I have never seen them growing on the plants in the garden.

I love poppies, but live on the coast. I have not had any sucess growing them, since moving here. Such a pity, think I shall have to move inland more.

I love those Asarina Jewel Mix. So pretty! Are they climbers? I would love to get some.
