I've seen them in home and bargain going relatively cheap, probably like the tinfoil ones mentioned above though...

Hi Dove, Not so bad, had a few more things "going walkabouts" including a little tree (black hawthorn I think it was) I got from some volunteering along with a few daffodils being dug up! shame but hey what can you do. I've had some kind of dasiy thing flowering all winter which has been nice, not too sure what it is, i'll try post a picture at some point. saw a couple more ladybirds today too, hidden on the old withered stems of sunflowers. hoping they stick around to sort out the aphids when they come! How are things your end?

Narcissus starting to grow

Mine have also been up since before christmas. they all look ok apart from one which has a little bit of brown on its tip. should I pile some leaves on it to keep it warm or will it be alright? 

Fox gloves

Hi all, I have some foxgloves planted in pots, most are still green and herbaceous but 1 or 2 seem to be dying back. Is that normal? is there anything I should do to look after them? I've been told on here that they are pretty hardy and will be alright just against a wall outside for winter. 

Daffodils sprouting

Planted them roughly double the size of the bulb deep. maybe some a little shallow as they are in pots. put them on top of a little bit of gravel too like Monty don said in GW a while back. 

How long can you save seeds / bulbs for?

I had some sunflower seeds that the pack said were "out of date" but they seemed to germinate ok, they were about a year or so after their best sown by date but at least half seemed to germinate of the ones I planted.

Hi, I planted some daffodils a few weeks ago now, (can't remember exactly when, but I saw a few posts on here saying it was time). Now they have already begun to send up shoots. Is this normal? is there anything I need to be doing for them?
