Winter song, missed your post.  You are my favourite here......you did say baker by trade.

flumpy.....that's sooooooooo good. (You're my favourite really)

all is not lost.....apparently I will be having a goodly supply of cupcakes later.  So it's not the end of the world after all.

Cut them back fairly hard........take the lanky stems off to create a spiky mound (like the technical stuff? )

Date palms

Dong grow it Hyacinth.

they grow well down here in Cornwall but beware of their vicious foliage.  

I had 2 in my garden but removed them because of their foliage.  They look exotic. They are not really a garden plant. 

Good drainage and not too hardy in cold areas I Think

a big no from me

Hiya nodlisab 

cut them back now and use for cuttings.  They will root in a few weeks.  A light granular feed and light mulch then for your pot

Depends on whether the quality of the plants is good or not.  If a good size plant is dispatched and well packed yet fails to grow and the supplier immediately replaces it with the same quality then, to me, that's a good guy.

bare root perennials rarely are worth it and most of,the bad guys supply plants like this 

HELLO FORKERS!

morning folks

enjoyyour birthday treat  Chcky.

wet here....not much chance of any sun today I think.

this Clarkson thing is all about publicity. ,ok, the prog doesn't need it but there are a few egos there.  However, if it's a sackable offence for everyone else then it's a sackable offence for Clarkson

It's how a supplier responds to a problem that determines a good guy or not.  

Holly ID please

Kev, yes green and white leaf on Handsworth.  

Dahlia tuber drying out

Mike, they need moisture.  I would pot them up and lightly water them to plump them up.  They arent in need of more warmth.

i have several clumps that are now receiving light watering. the more shoots the more water.
