Onions and potatoes

Ooh good point busy bee.  Thermals at the ready!  Just typical - I spent most of the weekend planting out only to come in and watch countryfile and the dreaded frost forecast!

Clematis

Posted: 28/04/2014 at 19:11

Evening peeps, just in case anyone is interested, the clematis I bought from The Clematis Man are romping away and I'm really please. The photo below is Early Sensation. Not at all bad for £4.99. The others are also doing well and they were only £3.99 and I got free postage for ordering four. Would defo recommend.

Hi Preksha

have just popped out to take a photo of my winter flowering jasmine.  Looks the same as yours. Shiney glossy leaves with lots coming from the base. Lovely yellow flowers in winter when nothing else is doing much. really pretty. 

Geum?

Thanks Fairygirl. Happy childhood memories of sticking them under the chin to see if you liked butter... or was that just where I went to school?!

Thanks ever so much for your help all. This forum is fabulous - even at delivering bad news!!

Thanks Victoria Sponge.  Every cloud... I can at least be confident in my ability to grow very strong weeds! Look at the roots on the bad-boy!?

Heee heeee Dove. I hear you now! Thanks though, very much.

Thank goodness I now know. I was going to take some to the village gardening sale and charge 75p a pot! I'm a new member there.... could've been a very short membership!

Oh dear! What a plonker! I've been feeding them, watering them, tucking them up at night! I've had a look on the tin-ter-net and found these two photos.... Am I grasping at straws hoping for mrs Bradshaw above?? The little yellow flower looks just like the creeping buttercup below. Albeit, the leaves do look similar on both. Maybe if I can find out if geums have runners or not (that's the term I was trying to remember!)...

Good morning lovely gardening folk. Anyone out there know much about geums? My mum gave me a cutting from her garden last year and it was glorious in the flower bed. Lovely orange flowers. So muggins here took some cuttings in the autumn; well, not cuttings, but those sprigs just like strawberry plants produce? Sorry, the correct term escapes me! But I dug the 'sprigs' up, potted them on, and they've grown loads. However, my mum came over yesterday and we're not at all sure that they are geums! One had a tiny yellow flower on it. They look, well, a bit weedy! Do geums not come true from 'sprigs' or have I propagated a weed in error?! Any steer much appreciated! Thanks
