Prior to receiving this one, I had never had any interest in Orchids but I think I'm becoming hooked now!

Why are the leaves of my tulips mouldy?

Posted: 13/04/2015 at 08:10

Thanks very much for that. I'll wait and see what happens with the rest of them and then I'll dig them up. 

Is there a problem with the website today – it’s driving me nuts!

It's strange that, just after I created the thread complaining about the website, it suddenly perked up and today it's keeping up with me again, so at the moment, all seems well. 

 

@ Edd - I know what you mean.  I do touch type and I think that was even more frustrating because the letters took ages to appear!

Home made compost - why do I get seedlings?

 Thanks for that - I was thinking it was just me!  I've had potatoes before now!

No I don't use it for sowing.

Cheers both!

What’s wrong with the website today, I type away like a mad thing only to find that there are letters missing, there seems to be a delayed reaction between me hitting the keys and the letter appearing on screen.  I’m having to type everything in Word and then copy it across.   It’s not my machine, there’s no delay at all on Word.

After they flowered, I let them die down as I do with the ones in garden. I left them in the pot over Winter - I don't normally bring my tulips in, they just keep coming up year after year.  I've never grown them in pots before.

Home made compost - why do I get seedlings?

Why is it that everything that I add home-made compost to, eventually sprouts unwanted seedlings?  The compost is left for a good while before using and it looks wonderful when I use it but before long I get these blasted seedlings sprouting all over the place, in pots, in the flower-beds, everywhere.  It’s driving me mad!  I’m starting to think that making compost is not such a good idea after all!

Some of my potted tulips are coming up either with mottled leaves or with mouldy leaves that break off as soon as you touch them and no flowers – what’s going on?  This will be the 2nd year of them being in the pot.  It is huge so I don’t think space is an issue – any ideas please?
