SALIX 'Flamingo'

It wont really like a container lynda

if you really have to do that then get as big a pot as possible, use john innes compost and add some dried cow manure to the mix. soak  your rootball first.  Keep well watered, esp in hot weather.

your container is prob too small and plant rootbound,,hungry and thirsty

I think I've killed the lawn

Should be fine ...just brush seed well in. seed will grrminate v quickly now but keep moist until then.  Keeps seed a little cooler too which helps germination

Yes Pootler....that's me too.  Impulsive to a fault.  But, logically and sensibly wait a while yet......if you can . At least for the full flush of flowers to start fading then a sharp knife or spade down the middle and plant asap

Were you in the Peanuts cartoon Nanny Beach ?

I have no doubt Bob Flowerdew's  lettuces are huge but I will never, ever eat one of them.  Would you?

If a plant is the wrong vwriety, colour,,whatever I always complain.  Last year I received an helenium but it was not umtil it flowered a few momths later that I realised it was the wrong plant.  A nice plant but not what I wanted.  This year a replacement was opening its flowers.   

Granma,,if you truly feel you were misled or mis supplied then complain for replacememt or refund

Lyn, my sense is that her seedlings have been starved by remaining in small pot/tray for too long.    Dont forget potting on will give a feed boost but prob not for a week or so

Year old seedling should be more than 2" by now.

(nice to have a disagreement on this hot sunny afternoon Lyn )
